This mini-documentary explores #Grime - the UK's most cherished homegrown culture from 2002 to now. Made for decade-long and brand-new Grime fans alike, I aim to dispel a lot of confusion as to what Grime really is. From Wiley to Stormzy, Rinse FM to Radio 1, and Channel U to SBTV, a lot of the key events, people and platforms have been covered. This #Documentary will contain interviews, music videos, sets, freestyles, stage shows and more, representing Grime from it's roots to it's success.

ABOUT:
This was a first attempt at informative content, and may be quite amateur audio-visually in some areas, but the aim is to educate. This essay was made in response to the growing hype and use of 'Grime' in media. I have been listening to Grime for 15+ years, and was one of the first types of music I ever heard. So a lot of this is based off of personal experience with the culture.

NAVIGATION:
02:00 WHAT ABOUT US? - Why did the scene emerge, and who was responsible?

04:33 WOT DO U CALL IT? - A brand new sound on the airwaves, a brand new culture in the making...

09:18 ROLLING IN THE DEEP - Striving for success, with fans by the thousands.

15:33 POLICE AND GRIEF - Police, crime, and other obstacles the Grime scene fought.

20:29 NEW DECADE, NEW ME - New genres, new oppurtunities, new attitudes.

24:40 SONS OF GRIME - The doors have been kicked open...

29:00 HONOURABLE MENTIONS - Some important names missed.
