Desi Grime

I always wondered why there was a lack of (south) asian grime MCs. Considering they are generally as 'inner city' (for want of a better term) as their white and afro-caribbean counterparts (those that do grime anyway) you'd expect there to be a more representative coverage in the uk rap scene in r, especially since the BBC Asian network provides a platform for this. But the wait is over (I think). 2 guys from East London called Flex and Rydacoo come with their video for 'Giving me stare'. It's definitly refreshing to hear but I can't help but think these guys are clowning themselves with their Ali G-esque clothing and hand waving. Still, you can't please em all
