This weekend Cadell sent for the wickedskengman Stormzy. The East London goes after the MOBO ‘Best Grime’ award winner in Hotline 3, making it clear he believes he should be King of the Jungle.
We take a look back at the 5 most memorable Grime beefs/clashes in it’s history.
5. Dizzee Rascal Vs Asher D
The infamous 2002 Choice FM clash featuring Dizzee and So Solid’s Asher D was one of the first authentic Grime Beefs in the scene’s short history, and it was there for all of us (within South London at last) to enjoy via the airwaves. No doubt whose career picked up the most after this. A clear battle between the risen star and fallen soldier.
4. Dizzee Rascal Vs Crazy Titch
In a special Deja Vu Fm show the Grime scene came together as one for an epic freestyle session. Things however became very heated between two of Grime’s emerging talents, Dizzee Rascal & Crazy Titch, which eventually cut short what was a legendary set in the making. It is a shame we didn’t get to see these two pit their wits against each, due to unfortunate circumstances, in the later years.
3. Wiley Vs The Movement
In one of the greatest sends of all time within Grime, Wiley showed in these 6 minutes why he and Boy Better Know were the scene’s undisputed kings, taking out all of the Movement on the Nightbus Dubplate.
2.Ghetto Vs Bashy
Probably only on this list due to the ending, which is still legendary for all Grime fans to this date. What began as an interesting and well matched clash turned into a heated debate about Ghetto’s credentials during his time in jail. The phrase ‘Ask Carlos’ will now be embedded in Grime folklore due to this clash.
1. Heartless Crew Vs Pay As You Go
The setting: Destiny’s, Watford. The year: 2001. The outcome: the beginning of the end for garage, as we knew it, and the emergence of a rawer, grittier, MC led sound – Grime. Two of the biggest crews in Grime/Garage clashed in what, still to this day, is one of the greatest crew clashes of all time.
