Really liking this. I don't usually like American Hip Hop cos to be honest the only USHH you hear over here is the bullshit from material donkies with fur coats that you see on TV. Underground USHH doesn't pop up here.

To me good hip hop = Good lyrics (Both US and UK have alot of lyrically talented rappers) Good beat (Something I think US is best for) and good flow (Something I think UK is best at)

Tell me what you think of this Zach

I love it cos you can feel the realness, hes passionate, very opinionated and likes to get more angry as the song progresses, awesome guy

Edit: Just watched it again myself and have realised you may well struggle with London slang lol

You like it though? :p

To be fair even I lose him there.. But what he writes about is all genuine content. actually makes it interesting to listen to. And nothing impresses me more than the fact that he can not only write good content, but make it rhyme, and then manipulate it into a flow... It's a talent I wish I had!

"Im haps if I reach 25,
Cos my best friend he died at 25 nah it ain't no lie,
When I say that im living out real life
I aint safe from this war going on outside
Are you really from the ends?
Do you really push a benz?
Have you really lost friends?
Do you really own skengs?
Do you really spit jems?
Do you really shot peng?
Well if then, you know where Im coming from friend!
Fuck 75 thousand cd's fam,
500 keys of green in my hand
100 G's of fresh cream in the bank
you got problems with drugs then just talk to frank!"

Doesnt make sense to many people but I think its great :p

Oh zach, the bit youre on about goes like this:

For rap shat famalam my fam will bang a man
badaman get battered up and battered with my hand
body parts buried in the belly of my lamb
boy betta know I’ll bury anybody in your clan
I’m better than you man
I bet a man a grand
I’m better than better with a birretta in my hand
I bet ev’un that there can never ever be a better fella ever in this cheddar of a man
Rebbellion and drillin in the hand a son of a man
and fella medalin with gangs peddelin my grams

Also, just to start flame war, UK HIP HOP > US HIP HOP!

Don't get me wrong though I appreciate that without US hip hop there would be no UKHH, however I think the UK excel in flow and material

Yeah I liked it, I don't know enough about true hip hop, especially in the US, so I'll hold my judgment.
