Grime is not garage
Grime is not jungle
Grime is not hip-hop and Grime is not ragga.
Grime is a mix between all of these with strong, hard hitting lyrics. It's the inner city music scene of London.
And is also alot to do with representing the place you live or have grown up in.

grime- is a type of music which reflects on how bad life can be living on council estates in london. From gun crime, to knife crime, jackings (getting robbed), earners to get by.
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.
they want to get out of this life and be someone, but generally not that many people manage to make a big name for themselves in the grime scene.
this life is a struggle and you probably dont realise how hard it can be as you have never been in these type of situations.

grime generally is about territory and mcs spit about merking, stabbing you, coming to your endz and causing arms house at your mums house.
