I saw the film during the week, it is pretty good. It is about Sams first day out of prison for murdering Trife. Kinda like a hood version of 24. It is good balance between serious issues and comic relief backed with an all UK soundtrack. Some odd choices like Lethal Bizzle & Kate Nash and a Goldielocks tune but it sounded decent. I heard D Doubles repping London verse pretty prominent in the film which had me sitting in the mumbling to myself the lyrics. I don't want to spoil it too much as it is out June 20th so you can make your own decisions about it.
Bashy- Kidulthood to Adulthood
Skepta - The best of the Rolex Sweep.
Out on Download 4th of August, will we be tired of it by then? I suppose when the actual music video is done for it, the hype will pick up to generate iTunes sales. Doubt it will do better then Wearing My Rolex though.
