Grime is raw like an open wound, rough like rubbing your face on a 5 o’clock shadow with unmistakable passion and the heart of a thousand lions. Grime has its own rules that set it apart from Hip Hop. My name is Charlie Boy. I’m or I was a DJ. My first mission was to open my ears, but now I’m coming for yours too. So listen close and don’t be afraid when it starts to bite you.
