BOY BETTER KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TO BE SO SOLID TO BEGIN THINGS OR YOU WILL BE BLACK-LISTED

Who would have thought Skepta would have collaborated with Megaman from So Solid. I personally did not see this happening. Many of you know I grew up on So Solid and I can only say this so many times that they broke down the door for the mainstream industry and gave people actually hope other then just being depressed and ish. Well that is me personally I feel more comfortable writing over a UK Garage and early UK Grime instrumental.
I got carried away. Skepta from Boy Better Know teamed up with Megaman from So Solid to bring you "We Begin Things" taken from Skepta's new mixtape "Blacklisted" This song I would give 5 out 5 the lyrics if you listen closely they are telling us some real ish that not many people nowadays really actually expresses over UK Grime beats let alone Rap. It also reminds me of the old skool days I mean like 2001 -2005 era that sound was Grimey and gets you hyped. The video maybe could have been better at the beginning with Megaman speaking directly to an MP or something but never the less the video reminds me of "Ride Wit Us", "They Don't Know" with the racing.
It would be good if So Solid actually did a whole EP again. With Harvey teaming up with Sneakbo, Ashley Walters doing his thing, Lisa Maffia and Romeo releasing a few materials I think it maybe time for the world to hear that innovative sound that has been missing from the music industry and not only that I like how there is unity within the UK scene. From every level. But other then that get "Blacklisted" from this
