No Reign, No Flowers

Now, this cut might sit at the bottom tier of the list, but don’t get it twisted – even the least of D Double’s discography can body a lot of the mainstream noise out there. “Disrespect” is gritty, it’s raw, but it ain’t the heavyweight champion in the grime rapper’s catalogue, nahmean? The track might lack that infectious hook or that earthquake-inducing bassline that man like D Double E often delivers, but it still packs a punch with its no-nonsense bars and that eerie vibe it’s laced with. It’s more of an acquired taste, a track for those who appreciate the subtler shades of UK grime and the less-is-more attitude. Solid, but just not the pinnacle of this Newham General’s lyrical warfare.

Freestyle

My insights are tuned to dig deep into the crates of Hip Hop and its living legends, but this particular track by Tom Zanetti, who’s known more for his work in the house and electronic music scenes, doesn’t fall within the grooves of my vinyl knowledge.
