Top 3 Selected….
Earlier on the year, the Grimefourm crew took part in a poll to decide who they thought should deserve the “Top 3 Selected” label. The results looked like this:
At the time, that was an accurate top 3. But now the forum are ready to choose once more, here’s the options:
My choices look like this (in no order)
The east london MC is tantalizing his fans at the moment as they wait for his debut album “Bud, Sweat and Beers” to land in stores. But in the anticipation for that album, we’ve been treated to two fantastic songs.
“London City” is a good song describing a typical night out in the fantastic city of London (self-explanatory really). The video is really good as well, featuring cameo’s from Ghetto & Lil’ Nasty. “Community Outcast” is an easily recognizable tune for long standing grime listeners, originally featured on Devlin’s “Tales From The Crypt” Release. The tune is set to be re-released, this time with an added verse narrating on more relevant issues to the current economic situation and a fresh new video.
Two singles don’t sound like strong credentials for a top 3 MC, but listeners of DJ Big Beatz show on Rinse FM (3 to 5 AM Thursday Mornings) will have heard more new material with fellow O.T crew pals Dogzilla and Deeperman, of whom had a CD out earlier this year. (Catch the review here).
Well what can I say ? CD of the year (so far), Radio Set of the year (so far), the South London MC is doing loads for the scene. “Money Over Everyone” (Review) was a fantastic CD, filled with a variety if concepts and a variety of grime if you like.
His very 1st vinyl “What Did He Say” dropped earlier in the year, featuring two of P’s biggest anthems to date, “What Did He Say” & “Don’t Jump” along with their instrumentals and last Monday P proved why he’s one of the scene’s best at Kiss 100′ central London studios. Along with a host of other top MC’s he tore down the mic on Logan Sama’s show.
Alas, the godfather of grime. Call me a “fanboy” (an internet term used to describe someone who shows support for a particular artist, whether having substantial reason too or not) or even accuse me of “jumping on the bandwagon” (more than 3 people liking an artist), but no one gets about like Wiley does. Take away Revolver‘s “Grimes Son” and the aforementioned “Money Over Everyone” and Wiley would have the CD of the year title.
“Race Against Time” was full of bangers such as “Where’s My Brother” & “Average Worker”, and is a welcomed CD to anyones collection. His work on other people’s CD is good as well. Features on CD’s from Little Dee, Skepta, P-Money and DJ Magic still maintain Wiley’s place at the top, and with “The Illusive” set to drop later on this month (or this time next year), Wiley is definatly top 3 selected.
