Caught an amazing documentary about Grime on Channel 4 the other week [see here if you’re quick]. The attack and pace of the lines was the inspiration this week. Really quite pleased with this, although I’m not daring to compare myself with Kano, Dizzee and the boys.
Lacing up layers, all the LOOPS in a stack.
Bass for the players, cut the groove in the scratch.
Blowing ya speakers in the boot at the back –
kick, kick, bass, snare and hi-hat.
Riding the rhythm its The Rage on attack,
fly – it’s a given – high like you’re on smack
colours not hidden, out the box like a Jack.
Snap, like a crack, bruise ya crew blue and black.
Ducking and diving but no quack quack quack.
Bank account details I’ll hack hack hack,
not your iPhone photos though, they’ll be wack
Seconds thought, nah, I’ll take another tack.
Can’t nobody stop me on the track,
tooled up, schooled up, nothing that I lack.
Rack ’em up, pack ’em up, poised for hijack
People get ready – it’s return of the Mack.
Next week we need to get rapping with: ASHES
