Grime was never produced for her majesties pleasure, but with an increasing amount of MCs going down faster than Paris Hilton, we try and find out exactly why it is that more and more grime artists are behind bars rather than spitting them.In a relatively short space of time, Grime as grown from a musical off shoot of Garage, into one of the most exciting and innovative music genres in the UK today. Take a walk down any given High Street in East London and you'll find the next wannabe Dizzee Rascal or Kano patrolling the ends with their goons. Ask them to rhyme for you and you'll be showered on with a lyrical outpouring of shanks, lengths and ounces, as the certain younger tries to assert their street credibility to; yourself, their crew, and probably more likely themselves. Go home and tune the wireless in to your local pirate and doubtlessly you'll hear the kids' heroes reciting measure of the same sort. So is it any wonder that a large community of rhymers have found themselves locked up like Akon?

I met Raj Kapone the other day.... I was chating pure sh*t, I made an excuse that I was drunk!I WASNT! although I dont know if he remembered me coming up to him at the last dirty canvas and asking him what Rwd was and what grime was.
