When I started this project I was looking to shed light on a connection in contemporary culture between black musical and literary production. My specific focus on grime has to do with the lineage of grime, how it references and riffs on the history of black music in the UK. I also think that grime heralds new possibilities for poetic expression because so many grime lyrics use meter and rhyme in ways that are extraordinarily complex.
I'm always delighted to find others making this connection between grime and poetry and so I draw your attention to D.S. Marriott who has written a poem referencing what is perhaps the definitive grime instrumental, Wiley's Eskimo. You can read D.S. Marriott's poem over at Intercapillary Space.
