The Streets: Original Pirate Material
Buy! - (Vice)
England's Mike Skinner is the man behind The Streets. His debut album successfully combines British garage/two-step beats with his own distinctive style of rapping. Instead of trying to imitate the more complex rhythms of American rappers, Skinner uses a more straightforward, declamatory style to deliver his articulate lyrics loaded with British slang detailing the everyday lives of working-class youth in urban England. 10/15/2002 - Don Yates
