    UKHH or Road Rap or w/e took the violence and spun it off into a much darker grittier genre, look at the 67k videos for example and i think that sole a lot of grimes fanbase. Rappers like K Koke and DVS did the roadside struggle songs better than grime artists with few exceptions (Dot Rotton being an example of that)

    an obsession with professionalism in a genre infamous for lacking any also doesn't help. Grime used to be unplayable in clubs and the police tried hard to lock it off, and it was killing the scene. But it's easy to blame the police and say the government shut down grime but MC's acted the way they did; getting rushed on radio happened and it drove off major investers. MC's had to soften thier sounds to get acceptance and thats contributed to it. Fans might have liked the rawness of the Grime scene but labels didn't, and ultimately too many people pirating music ate up any chance of financial success of going without a label.

    So MC's had to adapt to the police strangling the scene and poor consumer sales and the result was a softening of the sound.

    just my two cents i could be wrong.

And I think I know what it is.

    I think MCs focus too much on being proper artists these days. They want to make proper songs. The best tunes these days that capture the old sort of vibe are the ones where they're just spraying. The last proper track to catch that vibe for me is That's Not Me. And on that track Skepta is not actually saying anything is he. He's just spraying. And it works. I think there's too much focus on trying to be well rounded these days. Too much focus on concepts, and professionalism and just mass appeal and all sorts of shit. I know scenes and people are supposed to evolve and move forward, but, I don't care. I don't like it. I want it to go back. I feel like too many MCs are scared to just do what they wanna do. There's always a small part of them with one eye on toning shit down, making it more accessible to more people.

    Am I talking tosh? Can it ever go back to that? Is there a way we can get more of that? Can MCs juggle making money from the mainstream and shit, but still maybe just up their output in terms of the raw shit as well? You got any other suggestions?
    this is a v stupid post but i'll entertain u quickly as i've got a few spare minutes today

    the grime u refer to happened in a time and place that cannot be recreated so i'm afraid u will never get that music again. if it rly bothers u that much then u could look to the next eskimo dance for some nostalgia perhaps. all the gd mcs are touching 30 or above so of course their decisions and output are more tactful and money driven thus catering less to the og listeners desires... and lets not even talk about radio, raves or the culture.

    Grime has been diluted, some call their tunes grime for attention, or because they're a grime MC so automatically what they make must be too, or because they say it is.

    Needs a subgenre imo to refresh it, go back to the original sound and style, get rid of the stigma attached to the name Grime, new wave old school.

    could call it eskibeat, sounds cold
    youtube comments lol boy

    the rest i cbb to read

    Big up everyone's opinion but u man dunno what u talking about lol

    Like is anything the same from 10 years ago. Is rap music the same? Nope, is the record industry the same, nope?

    As for grime. I've been saying since 2012 it's full of 30 year olds now lol. Nothing trendy or innovative comes from old people. When grime got big it got big on the roads 1st it was young men from certain environments trendsetting and doing what came naturally to them.


    Anyway Grime is fine now. Hasn't lost anything u just want it to be 2005 again lol

    It's got stormzy novelist square maxsta all dem dons there. Sooner or later the road dons gonna be spitting on 140 again.

    Me, I've got loads of grime I been listening too the last few years from the old dons and new dons. Skepta is over rated and had to channel other peoples sounds to make a good song. But my only beef is how everyone is over thinking and trying to recreate the past and doing things for stripes lol #ThatsNotMe

    But anyway grime is doing fine. Maybe u grown out of it and need to leave it
