The Streets…

This is a real “classic” to me. Way back in 2002 I started on the London infusion of Grime/Garage tunes into my steady rotation just because of this song. The Streets is easily the shining jewel of the London hip hop/garage/grime scene… no debating. Kano, Wiley, Dizzee Rascal, Lady Sovereign, Crazy Titch, etc were in pretty heavy rotation for a lot of my time in college. With his very spoken word style of flow and his barebones beats and honesty, The Streets (Mike Skinner) is still a favorite of mine. Head to his wikipedia page (the streets) for more info and discography. But enjoy the material: Let’s Push Things Forward.
