Wiley, Flowdan, Riko & Manga: "F Off"

Few Americans know what's going on in the UK grime scene outside of Dizzee Rascal, but then most Americans don't listen to quality rap stateside either so no surprise there.  Wiley was right back there with Dizzee at the beginning of grime as it was emerging out of the UK garage scene. He founded the collective Roll Deep in 2002, of which the other three MCs on this track are also either current or former members.

"F Off" is as close as hip hop gets to a straight up drum circle, although the biting snap of each MC's flow doesn't lend itself to the kind of laid back vibe of hippies playing hackey sack.  That free download can be obtained here.
