I understand people must not care about these posts very much, for anyone that takes anything that’s said here seriously check this out.
There’s a young UK grime artist named Subzero. If you like Wiley, this kid is just for you. His sound is as refreshing as grime can get after being stirred into the mainstream since Dizzee Rascal’s 2002 debut Boy N Da Corner. The first song in particular, Explosive is what I consider to be one of the best rap songs of the year. No other grime artist this year has produced a song as well-written or with as beautiful a beat. The slick way he spits out “there’s never a day where my socks are matchin'” is one of most simple, but effective lines I’ve heard in recent memory.
Anyways, here’s the link to his MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/subzerofreezing. Hope you like it as much as I do. If N-Dubz can get a deal (LOL) I sure as hell hope this teen can. I’ll be sure to check out his debut CD Hood by Nature when it’s released later this month.
