While the Streets are still no longer on the scene, Slowthai has taken their place. There is an irrefutable connection between Mike Skinner, also from the Midlands, and Tyron Kaymone Frampton, the bad boy from Northampton who with this album has released a unique firecracker of punky grime. Brexit, class division, daily troubles, domestic violence, the destruction of capitalism and the monarchy, nothing escapes his aggressive lyrical assault on the idea of Britishness. His mother is from Barbados and had him at sixteen years old. His father left the scene when he was three. No wonder those Xanax boxes have been adding up… Nothing Great About Britain is, however, no copy of The Streets’ first albums. Constructed like a kind of intimate diary, he combines social criticism with humor and cynicism in an unprecedented fashion. Behind the controls for most of the tracks is producer Kwes Darko who creates a soundtrack that merges grime beats with minimalist rap, electro and hints of rock’n’roll. Slowthai has not only drawn inspiration from the likes of Skepta or Stormzy; his DNA is particularly punk. Features include: grime legend Skepta (Inglorious), Jaykae (Grow Up), the punks Slaves (Missing) and the producer Mura Masa (Doorman). All contribute to a punchy album that reminds us of the singular force of British rap. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
