Current rap music is not real, the music’s made by somebody else and these guys are rapping about a car or a girl. I didn’t hear any self-deprecating English humour in there. I think irony is dead as far as that goes. These guys are just trying to make money.
UK hip hop artists would sell their mama for a Rolex. It’s all crap. I’m talking about Tinie Tempah, Lethal Bizzle. Dizzee Rascal, when I first heard his song, I thought there was something wrong with him. I didn’t get it and I grew up on hip hop.
