"Sly, Look Into My Eye"

People have been doubting my credentials recently. My blogs aren't good enough in the highly competitive world of the blogosphere, and you should know about it son. Shaken and stirred, I tried to escape the accusations by wallowing in some Lauryn Hill, but it was no good. Not even Jon E. Cash. The shuffle went onto Swindle's 140 Mixtape.

Maybe it was the melodic synths, but still it proved better than the others, and stopped the cries of "boring" ringing in my ears. I listened to it all again, and concluded that someone needs to find Fuji, drag him to a studio and make him record some tracks.

He could well be doing stuff currently, but I'm unfortunately unaware of these things. I also spontaneously decided that Battersea needs a higher profile in grime and, with a lack of options available, it seemed fitting that Fuji would be the man to step to the plate.

Fuji spitting for about 15 seconds while walking through a tunnel

The hype verses of South Side Allstars Riddim and the Ska Riddim show grime at its most chaotic on tracks, and a time when MCs actually weren't doing their own thing and did decide to reply to sends.

I enjoy that sort of thing, but still appreciate tunes such as Don't Quit, which removes itself from the sometimes gimmicky world of the 8-bar track. The song has a decent concept, and promotes a message creatively while not sounding preachy or disingenuous. Fugi's enunciation isn't always great, but the comedy in being a "black Bruce Lee" more than makes up for it, and his distinct voice isn't overplayed on. There's elements of rawness, yet there's nothing wrong with that and he has talent that probably hasn't been fully realised.

The product is completed by a video that I didn't know existed until not that long ago. The best grime videos are the cheap ones with comedy gold, and Don't Quit is up there.

Don't Quit

Bring back Fuji.
