2009: The year grime began to pay


Five No 1 singles, record label feeding frenzies, influencing the US charts – no one imagined grime would get this big. Dan Hancox explains how Dizzee Rascal and Tynchy Stryder set the world alight.

Nice overview from Dan with some great links at the end that show grime’s real talent away from the Top 40. And some good jabs at the Met also.
