UK Acts I would like to see blow in 2010

Here's my list of acts I would like to see blow in 2010 but probably won't due to the industry not being ready, or them not having the break they require...

Badness - The Brummy originating yardie grime singer/MC has been steadily grinding over the last few years but is yet to make an impact on the 'urban scene' (i.e. Rwd mag, 1xtra territory) in the way certain others have, despite his diverse abilitys of hook writing and singing while bringin gully content as a grime mc in his own right...


Mclean
(aka Digga) - You'd be forgiven for assuming McLean's straight out of the states on a Trey Songz/Mario/Neyo tip but is in fact a North London representing R&B/nu-soul singer who's collab'd with the likes of Black The Ripper and is due to release his age old song; broken. With Tinchy on the remix and a rising UK urban pop scene thanks to the likes of Taio Cruz and N dubz this single should open his door to the thriving scene...


C Gritz
- since joining Boy Better Know, after years of putting in the work with cousin Jammer in Neckle Camp, C Gritz has raised his game, jumping on the crew's 2009 hit, Goin' in and has since been signed to 'major independent' label Big Dada along side Jammer which should see him release some stonkers, tho with a crowded scene to compete in Gritz will have to diversify his sound which he's definitly capable of doing...I caught up with Gritz last month for an interview/freestyle:


M.I.K - After the release of Workaholic earlier this year, M.I.K is set to release his 2nd full length mixtape; Grime to 5. With a solid fanbase and and the ability to hit hard when it's crucial, he's surely destined to make a dent amongst the grime scene's heavyweights. Appearances on Logan Sama's and Westwood's shows proved his worth so definitly a name to watch! Download the'10 Minute Tea Break EP' here, and make sure you support by buying your copy today!


Lady Leshurr
- this Birmingham based female spitter definitly has the makings and talent to be the next female grime MC to make a mark but will the mainstream audience be ready to take on another edgy female spitter after the underwhelming impact from Lady Sovereign? Her phone call freestyle to Soulja Boy on Westwood's 1xtra show a few weeks ago didn't do her any harm and her compassionate other side (check 'baby p' here) should prove she's no 1 trick pony. A collabo with Young Money's Nicki Minaj would go down a storm but I ain't holding my breath for it...

Other honorable mentions go to J Beatz (producer), Merky Ace, JME
