Duality of Canary wharf. To inspire? To keep you feeling small?,
This review is from: Stand Up Tall: Dizzee Rascal and the Birth of Grime (Kindle Edition)
Beautifully brings alive the raw energy in an East London tower block studio somewhere. IMHO grime stepped in to replace traditional hip hop. Yes we know you got 2 benz's Mr Carter. We can't relate to that.
It's depressing to think that 10 years later Dizzee finally feels more at home, due to increased personal wealth.
Grime history needs to be told, it's real and may give an insight in to the way real Londoners and those in inner city estates feel.
Only issue I have is that the book makes me feel old, 10 years ago! Where did the time go?
