Another Monday and another song to pick for Grimey Mondays but after putting up a Roll Deep song up last week, I can’t help but put another one up this week. What can I say, when a crew makes good music, all you can do is enjoy it and share with others and Roll Deep were definitely good at making the sort of music that people could either chill at home to or get them pumped up for a night out.
As for the particular song for this week, it’s a combination of creative wordplay, a nursery rhyme-esque hook, a whole bag of punchlines and an energy that makes you feel all powered up. At the end of the day, that’s what old skool grime is, high tempos riddims with the MCs hopping on to spray their bars. For the ones who worked hard enough, they got their 15 minutes of fame but for the ones destined for success, they turned those 15 minutes into a career of success. Roll Deep, I salute you, true grime veterans.
