    So Wiley has decided to retire. We hinted at this a while back when we said he would be moving to New York, so it’s no big surprise for us. Maybe it was Footsie trying to rush him which finally pushed him over the edge. Who knows? All we can be sure of...

    Girls and grime don't mix so well. So to adequately prepare for this month's column I decided it was necessary to do a little research in the form of a date.

  • Grimewatch

    It seems everyone in grime is busy getting ready for the arrival of Father Christmas, so there's not much happening right now.

  • Grimewatch

    For this issue, Grimewatch jumped on the back of a stolen Mini Moto and rode all the way up the motorway without a helmet to the city of Nottingham to see what the local grime scene had to say.

  • Grimewatch

    Wow. Where do we start? A lot has happened since the last Grimewatch update. So much in fact that we don’t have time to talk about Mercston getting put on a lengthy lockdown following an incident with a 15-year-old girl at the Prince’s Trust music...

    You should all be happy to know that Scorcher, the finest MC the grime scene has ever produced (in our opinion) has been released from jail and is currently on road working on his debut album.

    When we’re not scouring message boards for mentions of Vice or posting MP3s on the RWD forum, we here at Grimewatch keep busy surfing Rupert Murdoch’s proverbial slut-fest, MySpace.

  • Grimewatch

    Do you remember a couple of years back when Maxwell D sold a story to the tabloids about going dogging with Jamelia? Well, tell New Nation to hold the front pages, because I’ve just been on a date with MC Shystie.

  • Grimewatch

    Grimewatch didn’t appear last month, but don’t freak out, we were only taking a break. In all honesty, we asked one of the grime kids to give us their tidbits and it came back a week late as “Weed, Blank CDs, Cold Drink...” and it just wasn’t that...

  • The Darkest White Boy

    Despite our constant support and coverage of grime we still get criticised for focusing on the more aggressive (interesting) aspects of the scene, while ignoring its cousin, dubstep (which is kind of like dark, spaced-out grime with lots of sub bass...
