The Streets/Mike Skinner
 
I've done a search and can't find a thread so if there is one merge this and then burn me at the stake for I have sinned.

Anyway, anyone else a fan of this guy? He is a legend imo and has made so many great songs even though 'skills' wise as a rapper he is average at best. Tomorrow marks 15 years since he dropped this record though:

A nice article I saw about this album that Lady Leshurr posted so it made me post on here - Why The Streets

Haven't heard any of the stuff he did with that guy from Leeds as it's hard to find. Wonder when he will make a return.

What is your favourite track from it mate.

OccultHawk 03-24-2017 04:25 PM

Stay Positive

It strikes me as one of the most sincere and emotionally raw hip hop songs I've ever heard. I also love the sound looping. It's like a precursor to glitch. Very hypnotic and beautiful.

I've got Blinded by the Lights on vinyl :cool:

Check Computers & Blues mate. It's a really slept on release. I think people were harsh on it because HWTMAEL was bad and EIB was hit & miss.
