It's hard to admit it, but our attention to grime lately has been seriously lacking. Sorry to neglect you, grime! London is far away! Just kidding. Kind of. It actually is far away and we actually have been neglecting it. Oversights are oversights, we can't do anything but apologize. Suffice to say, grime has actually not been completely enveloped by whatever UK equivalent of Flo-Rida is pumping out Euro trance rap hits with dudes that used to make black and white videos in dark London alleys. Get money, we guess? This video—which is basically just D Double E and Dizzee Rascal rapping in front of a white background with weird glitches (are these on purpose? They are probably supposed to be there)—is actually all we really need to see. In case you forgot (we forgot), Dizzee Rascal is actually an exceptional rapper when he decides to rap, which he does here really well.
