As part of my day job, I’ve been reading a lot of grime blogs (don’t ask). A couple of weeks ago, two of the biggest grime blogs in London had a very funny 8-Mile-style MC battle:
chantellefiddy.blogspot.com: “When I'm on the mic it's Peter Kay style - top bombin'/Dropping nuclear snaps that I just have to throw your mom in”
prancehall.blogspot.com: “Magazines wanna sign me for 500 grand / Set me up as a global brand / I get links to my blog from Stratford to Thailand”
Chantelle: “500 grand? I think you mean 500 grams / Cos you must be on coke, if you fuck with me, bloke / I heard you're up in Thailand making considerable noise /
Because you drop big scrilla on all the ladyboys”
Prancehall: “My lyrics are intelligent like brehs with 3 or more GCSEs / Your gran is a pitbull and the bitch has got fleas.”
Chantelle: “And don't call out my gran because she'll be your next date / Despite the fact she died in 1998”
… and so on. I’m thinking I should start MC 'beefs' with all the other music blogs, but unfortunately I'm not an MC:
Yo, Matrix Synth, still rocking the green and black?
Like Revolutions and Reloaded, that look is so wack.
Er... I'll get my coat.
