Wiley - Crash Bandicoot freestyle + lyrics
I found this transcript on a blog. Large parts will read like gibberish, bare jokes still... I'll happily straighten out any beffudlements . This is an old track by Wiley aka Eskiboy, originally of UK garage crew Pay As U Go Cartel, later founder of Roll Deep (and arguably grime itself).



**LYRICS**
Yeah
Big up msm in the building
Eskiboy 2 6
Tunnel vision volume one
You know who I am
Big up all my roll deep thugs
Boy better know thugs
North south east west
We're doing this thing
Big up everyone inside the uk
Eskiboy
Running the show
Listen

My names eski if you don't know me
Eski if you don't know me


The way I stay live on the daily's crazy
I get short tempered,
Don't talk, pay me
Turn to the darkside if my days ever get rainy
Drain me? never not maybe
Yeah I do know Jamie
And I know Sadie
Her she's a cool young lady
Back to the way I live daily
Had bare dough but that didn't change me
Yeah I got a daughter
Newborn child but her name aint Amy
I aint got a winnie the pooh scarf
But you can bet I'm getting one
So stay away from me
I'll spray three eighths and I'm not even crazy
Not even lately
Don't **** about cos you can't irate me
Wile out one don't know how to take me
Take out crews on a daily
I said I take out crews on a daily standard
I done the dance more than your whole gang could
I swing through man just like Flowdan would
I aint from brentwood, I come from danwood
Straight from man a bad man wood
Stand in flames you could not
Cos you aint from danwood
You're whole plan would flop
If you come across me and got lary, standard
The bars are right they're like scriptures
I'm famous and everybody takes pictures
I had faith since decks and mixers
And you're a non believer
So I can't see you in the distance
Picture the game as a whole
Healthy like the boy better know tee business
J's my witness
I'm a musician ask Skepta
Three of us talk
We make a decision
You know me I got good vision
Rude boy listen
Don't f about
There'll be a rude boy missing
When the goons start fishing
I'm a L O N kid
I got the hood snakes hissing
Me, the shotter that you couldn't really see
Made the dream come true after years of wishing
After years of dissing
Years of swinging
I still do the crime and walk
No singing
See the level I'm at, they wanna be at
The brake horse power's like a 20 valve fiat
There aint a club you won't see me at
Cos I'm a street star
Theres no set time I have my tea at
You might see me draw a g at
HSBC at
Canary Wharf retail therapy's me all week
shot a key at
28 g at
20 past 3
27 big achiever
E2 weaver
Had the first sega
Blood I emerged out of jungle fever
Volume one Creeper
Roman street sweeper
Don't get gash by the hour rudeboy
I get gash by the meter
Wilehouse senior
Them all lean yeah
E3 teacher
UK speaker
L O N preacher
Trinidad bloodline
Eastside thats where I ride
I'm a leader
East London advertise a reader
Redwood bluewood
I'm a light sleeper
Stepney green geezer
Aint had shisha
I know Caroline but I don't know Alisha
I don't really care if either one of them
Done a thing with Josh Perry or Peter
My love for them's nowhere on the meter
Eskidance keeper
Get the weed cheaper
Quantum leaper
The Tottenham high streeter
Eskibeat beater
A star reader
4 times community service breacher
Back to court
Facing jail
Case beater
Robbery, burglary
Dad got nicked cos of me
The police thought I was a phone shop dealer
Back in the day I was a wheeler and dealer
Fly to west where the sky is blue and grass is greener
Paul Smith jeans suit air max typhoon
Tchung gash greeter
Yeah I know Jenny but I don't know Rita
My mum's family comes from Antigua

Yeah
Eski boy
Shut your mouth

Dizzee Rascal - Stop Dat

This is grime's would-be posterboy (these days Raskit avoids the term 'grime' in interviews); the album is still considered the best example of the genre. Alot of these lyrics are rave bars he'd been using on pirate radio for years, which you'll be able to hear on this magnificent new website which collects together classic sets from the 'golden era' of grime ('03-05ish): grimetapes.com
Why the golden era? At the time the scene was based around raves (a scene long since killed dead by the London Met) and pirate radio (now it's cheaply-produced mixtapes that are instantly bootlegged online, and zero promotion). It was still early years so the 'grimey' 2-step production style was still the standard i.e. the beats were miles better.

Some of them are tape quality for grimeheads only, but if you use the Zshare link you'll be able to hear them before you d/l. I particularly recommend any of the N.A.S.T.Y sets, they were probably the apex.



**LYRICS**
Stop dat
Start dat
Get dat, wah
Been der done dat had dat, wah
He's got a Nokia, take dat, wah
Rude mouth, loud mouth watch dat, wah
Pretty girl, buff girl
Doggy, dat, wah
Dizzee Rascal's on da format, wah
Bad manners get a backslap, wah
I call da shots like top cat, wah
Track and stack whores done dat, wah
Come on rude boy come prove dat, wah
Boy in da corner, I'm dat, wah
Loose school lyrical Bow-cat, wah
Best friend, sole mate, wats dat, wah
Girlfriend, wifey done dat! , wah
You can't know me, know dat! wah
Dedication to show dat! wah

Chuckin' MC's like stones
Bad boy forever like Sean Puffy Combs
Inside, outside runnin all zones
Set trend, get girls like Tom Jones
Brake bones, brake your house, wifey's home,
yes wifey don't leave me alone
Dat boy's arrogant send for da chrome
Come bare-foot like Fred Flinstone
You got a big gun?
Come bring it out
Butterfly-knife come along fling it out
we could jus do it old school Swing it out
I suggest you best start winging out
Who's dat? Wat's dat boy in my eye?
Yea man, quick man, start spreadin out!
Kidnapped, takin rascal's hideout
Cold sweat, tie you up, get burnt out!

Boys, girls start movin'
Come on, Girls, boys start movin'
Alright don't stop, don't stop, till it's hurtin'
Come on don't stop, don't stop, till your bleedin'
Alright boys, girls start your ting'
Come on, Girls, boys start your ting'
Alright don't stop, don't stop, till it's hurtin'
Come on don't stop, don't stop, till your bleedin'
Alright boys, girls start movin'
Come on, Girls, boys start movin'
Alright don't stop, don't stop, till it's hurtin'
Come on don't stop, don't stop, till your bleedin'
Alright boys, girls start your ting'
Come on, Girls, boys start your ting'
Alright don't stop, don't stop, till it's hurtin'
Come on don't stop, don't stop, till your bleedin'

Alright!

Got a screw face all night all day
Screw face kids brothers aren't paid
Screw face means kid why you waste away
Screw face means get out my way
Screw face means you don't know me,
what you lookin at what's your beef?!?
Screw face means I'm not havin it
Screw face means I'm not a chief
Screw face means I'm not happy right now
Dat's why no smile was used
Screw face means I'm not pleased
Screw face means I'm not amused
Screw face means I jus wanna walk not talk
Screw face means I jus wanna leave
When I activate my screw face, gimme space
Screw face means let me breathe!
I got sick flows
Make an MC have to walk on his tip-toes
Life aint always nice
That's how **** goes
You know we're goin on black
Cause we're black crows
And I cant be seen wit these sick hoes
We're bustin us mic till your chick goes
You are not, not gonna be
Till we kick toes
Your girl's the same as all
Bimbo's, freak's and nimpho's
I got an idea, make dough on the spot
I mean right here
Lock your girls up in for da whole year
You can bring drama cause I don't know fear
I'm violent, feels so clear
Move to the mic Mc's are like oh dear
Some try catchin me but they're not nere
Not ever, not now, or not here way too hot here


Look, yo girls, ladies
do da butterfly, shake your battie low,
shake your battie high
don't ask me who, where, when or why
Wanna see a battie raise high to da sky
girls, ladies, do da butterfly
shake your battie low,
shake your battie high
don't ask me who, where, when or why
Wanna see a battie raise high to da sky

I have decided, lest this thread end up on the ash pile, to post weekly (fortnightly?) updates on the grime scene (i.e. underground electronica/two step-driven music from London) and leave it up to discerning posters to peruse, with one set and one track each post.
It's difficult to put across much of grime to unfamiliars since alot of it relies on a knowledge of slang (see here, a ham-fisted 'guide' I did a while back) or awareness of events in the scene since it's distinction from UK garage back in 2001. It's important to note that the scene also seemingly moves at 140bpm, and beats from 2004 are already considered old skool...

Kiss FM's Logan Sama slot (one of two grime shows on UK mainstream radio, the other being Westwood's 1Xtra show) is traditionally the most respected platform for the talented yout - a platform that only Dizzee Rascal (and Kano less so) have used as a springboard to mainstream success... through abandonment of the large and dedicated listenership that made them (of course).
I just discovered Logan's youtube channel, which has all the recent sets:

The Set
Random Impulse and Rinse (DJ - Logan Sama): Both display very hectic yet articulate styles (to call them 'hype' would merely denote simplistic rave/clash bars); with a lyrical depth and satire on the 'gun talk'-dominated grime scene not often heard. Both are from the collective G-Fam, Impulse's last mixtape 'Full Metal Alchemist' was amazing and Rinse's debut 'Attack of the Nerds' will, I predict, have reach beyond the grimeheads later this year.
If anybody outside of the UK can understand the following video I'll be shocked. Logan Sama knows how to mix grime and get the best out of the MC's, but the heavy dubs don't set in until 4:00 with a beat produced by Skepta, which is coincidentally when Rinse reels off the bars that made me fall in love Part 2 follows.




Classic riddim
Newham Generals: Frontline (prod. Footsie)
The first MC, Munk (he had several names, all of them ridiculous), has since found religion and left the Newham Generals - Newham being in southeast London. The other two, D Double E (unique flow once ubiquitous with pirate radio) and Footsie (producer and DEE's rasta-foil) have since signed to Dizzee Rascal's independent label Dirtee Stank and supported him on world tours; the album has been 'about to drop' for 3 years now
They were known for tearing up the raves rather than their output. edit: the end of this video says alot

When i was in Oxford i'd go with my flatmate occasionally, 'twas an hour on the bus. We went to a couple of Dirty Canvas nights and last year (you'd have loved this) I went to FWD>> at The End - bare dubstep with grime in the other room. All very tasteful. I tried my hardest NOT to look like a hip North London fanboy for that one. Let's just say it was a mixed crowd. About 5 quid per drink aswell, but you save up for something like that

lol no no it all falls under that vast umbrella of hip-hop's cultural influence... Krafty Kuts will I imagine be a chance to see some real old skool hip-hop deck-athletics (I just KNOW there's a proper word for that?!). I went to see DJ Yoda once... well I saw the ad for his tour in a magazine. But it's the thought that counts.
