    This is the maddest lineup of the year. Headie One, Stormzy and AJ Tracey. Arguably the 3 biggest artists in UK music right now. 2020 has been the year of lineups for sure.

      @HAYNESY wrong, its a red hot chilli peppers riff, from a song pretty litte ditty. Crazy Town sampled it. Just like Headie one has

      England’s Biggest Music Nerd Year ago +4

      @Thanos I think he’s talking about ‘Butterfly’ by Crazy Town, a song that samples the guitar line from ‘Pretty Little Ditty’.

    • Thanos
      Thanos  Year ago +4

      @England’s Biggest Music Nerd but crazy town has nothing to do with this song. It samples pretty little ditty not crazy town. 🤷‍♂️

    The whole production of the song and the visuals are on point, I love each individual flow adding to the song as a whole. But the thing that tops it for me is the Giant Headie One statue. That’s a dope ass visual, mans on top of the game

    my man sampled a 2000 uk garage track and a late 90s song from a cheesy
    popish rap/rock group into a grime song with drill hi hats at the end
    blending genres together seamlessly is extremely difficult
    whoever produced this is ahead of his game.

      You can hear the Toddla T production on this. The bass, the drums and crisp sampling is 100% Toddla T. Idk who Fred is but if it didn't have his name on the credits tbh I wouldn't have noticed it was co-produced. Toddla T is an animal and a lot of people don't realize his catalog

      Cos on jail you can't buy a birthday cake so you make one by breaking digestive up melting chocolate in the kettle and mixing them together. It's clever wordplay that only people who have been to jail would know about hence the reason multiple comments ate completely ignorant to it making his word play even more effective
