You know when you talk to somebody in Grime and they fully get their David Brent on.

Politics - What does this mean? Nothing to me. It is a common excuse for something not happening most of the time.

How it could be used in a conversation:

Butterz says "When's your mixtape out Grime Dude?" Grime Dude says "There's a lot of politics with that right now"

Alot (One word) - Most of the time this I hear this used is when plans haven't gone the way they intended.

How it could be used in a conversation:

Butterz says "Are you still doing the clothing line and movie?" Grime Dude says "Its alot for me right now fam"

Independent - Gives me jokes when people brag about being independent like they could be signed if they wanted to be. It is used as an excuse for everything being late, available from one store online and being promoted only on Logan and Westwood.

How it could be used in a conversation:

Butterz says "Is your mixtape going to be on Itunes" Grime Dude "Nah fam im staying independent I don't want Apple taking mans peas"

And finally the biggest buzzword in Grime is actually Grime. It is an umbrella term for anything UK that has somebody MC'ing or rapping on a beat on. It is used to represent a particular sound that evolved out of UK Garage but that went out the window for most people a long time ago!

When I talk about Grime, I am talking about music that is influenced by UKG yea, not Channel U garbage or sped up vocals on a hip hop beat by somebody from England.
