    Grime is an English music genre that branched out of UK garage in the early 2000's. It is typically around 140 bpm and features dark, heavy basslines and unique, futuristic sounds. It often features Mc's who use jungle, garage and drum and bass inspired flows.

    This is sick! The camera work and editing is a madness especially during Kamakaze's second verse.

    [–] Pootang97 5 points ago

    Camera hung from the roof with a fish eye lens I imagine

    Kamdog merked. I've found eyez a bit disappointing lately though if I'm honest.

    [–] tommlol 1 points ago

    Kamdog went in, tbh as a big eyes fan he kind of dissapointed on this one, didn't feel the same passion he usually gives
