Didn't know that.. though there's no doubt that the boy can rap. I was at a few urban & garage nights last time I was in London - some of the MCs are feckin amazing... some leap from the "hippitey-hop-till-you-can't-stop" style rappin' of the 80's!!
Did a track with artful dodger (with the unfortunate Bo! Selecta! phrase), it charted and everything. Not exactly brilliant (though fresh sounding at the time, post D&B) but better than latter stuff. I've never been a big fan of any form of UK Garage though. Always seemed a bit contrived and something that middle aged music critics sort of latched onto because it was "edgy"
LOL! I don't read many reviews, so I'll take yr word on it.. though from experience, the club nights I was at in London were class. Not a middle aged critic in sight either!
