Grime 1.5

Often cited as “Grime 2.0”, there’s no doubt that Grime’s resurgence into popular culture has been phenominal. 2015 and 2016 saw some epic milestones for Grime and Black British music, not to mention Skepta and Stomzy’s nominations for the 2017 Brits. However, the media often forgets that there was a movement happening in Grime prior to the resurgence. When the Grime heavyweights were making music for mainstream audiences and the “road man” were embracing the more Rap side , “Grime 1.5” was taking place –  helping to inspire the take off for Grime 2.0.

Enough ranting, below are a few forgotten gems that I feel were key when no one was talking about Grime.
