Here’s a video showing me making a Grime track from scratch. Although I consider myself more of a Hip Hop artist than a Grime artist, being from the UK and being a rapper there is no getting away from the Grime influence which runs deep in the UK. Continue reading
This is a great video talking about scientific consensus and arguments from authority. In this day and age where anyone can write about anything they choose and make themselves come across as an authority to the masses, without any real credentials or evidence to back their claims up I think videos like the one below are more important than ever.
