grime is up and coming and youths generally mc in the grime scene talking about life on road and about the crack and smack culture in london and surrounding cities.
they generally smoke green (cannabis) as there is some really good shit going about and it helps combat the hard life on road.
they find it hard to live in the city as it is really expensive and they dont have jobs, they want to earn money in the game by doing hot moves,robberies and selling drugs but this normally results in having the police knocking at the door all the time.
