The Hub Entertainment’s Charlie Sloth, has been on a road trip up and down the country in his eye catching bright orange Nissan filming his very own BBC Documentary ‘It’s Grime Up North’. The grime mogul visited places such as Manchester, Newcastle, Liverpool and Leeds in search of a northern MC .
After interviewing some of London’s most successful urban music artists at last years MOBO Awards, it soon became apparent no northern rapper has had huge success. With N-Dubz frontman Dappy, Warner signed artist Smiler and new r&b sensation Angel all agreeing that there isn’t many successful well know rappers from up north, driving Charlie’s enthusiasm towards the venture.
Mr Sloth keeps it raw by filming young rappers on the street, trying to show him that the talent isn’t just based in London. He meets two young MC’s who catch the presenter’s attention, fourteen year old ‘Kasst‘ and scouser ‘Bang On’ who rap, write and produce all of their own music. They also rap in their distinctive northern accent, which brings Charlie to ask himself, ‘Is this the reason why northern rappers are not getting any recognition?’
