I love how real all this stuff is. So brilliantly, lyrically and musically fantastic.
There is a kind of honest melancholy, perhaps inherent in the weather here? But also such an open heart laid bare, that touches me every time with some of these.
Such an superb energy and unique flavour or flava, Lol that is so quintessentially British and I Love that. It lifts my cheeky london side and gives me back my swagger and a little f**ck you in my step on the days That I need that most.
Because even a peace loving speader of light and gratitude needs to set boundaries sometimes too. Often perhaps, maybe even because of it.
So first Plan B… well what can I say, I just love, love, love each and every brilliant thing that he/they do. He is obviously a very bright lad, with a ginormous heart which is easy to see in music and lyrics he spouts.
I bet he is one of those with endless talents. Including acting I noticed too i was pleased to see. Speaking as an ex drama school girl, he really can act too. Bringing that same natural honesty, ease and genuine street to his roles, which I appreciate.
He is a better actor than many who call themselves so and who work full time in the profession. But I bet he’s the kind of person who could do anything he was given the opportunity for or set his mind to.
Then Wiley, who I have an idea is another bright one, as I am sure rappers often are. I love the Grime sense of humour, it’s bare faced witty, cheek and quite honestly it’s brilliant Britishness. I love a song that makes me smile and they seem do seem to do that.
For me they are the sound of London.
