    Default Has BBK got the right formula?

    With the mainstream hating grime music- has BBK (and others) got the right idea of releasing there stuff on an independent label??? That way they can keep control of it an stay away from the evils of the game.
    Is independent the way forward or not??? Discuss

    according to wiley they do..

    imo they got it right, they dont have to have a day job and they release any music they want, whether its skepta releasing his pop style 'bad boy' for more support and money, or his 'been there done that' for his love of grime.. they can do what they like.

    BBKs prolly my favourite crew, i know it might sound a bit dodgy but when theyre all on grime, its mental, sick team, all of them bar shorty are on a high level

    motherfucker il show you pussy footin
    il kick a bitch in the cunt till it makes her queef
    and sounds like fucking a whoopie cushion

    C.S

    Other grime acts should follow suit.

    they all have control of there music, they just decide to have no balls and stick to selling out.

    also most artists couldnt do this independantly, boy better know is probably the only crew in grime that could do this because they do infact 'have the formula' all other artists couldnt do it independant IMO.

    With them being independant it's pretty sick what they've achieved.

    Yeah true, I also doubt they are looking to be signed.

    Have they sold well? If so then yes. Otherwise no. - kinda goes without saying, there's not enough stats published in the UK industry to be able to understand who's doing well or not unless they're in the charts or get a plaque

    They're earning very good money, have respect from a wide variety of fans, and are getting booked everywhere. In that video where Skepta talks to a fan at the In The VIP Remix video, he says he done a booking for 200. He went there and took next to nothing just to perform and have a good time. Fair play to BBK.

    BBK need to talk to Jammer and Gritz and get them in line, I'm always seeing them air out their shit all over the internet like 16 year old couples do "OmG jason is such a prick he keeps lying to me"

    I know Kippo knows what I mean after this morning.
