I have come across a CDR of "A grand don't come for free". It has a track listing on the front cover and "sample product - not for sale" stamped on it. The actual CDR is a TDK "Certified Plus" cd. It has "The Streets" written on it with a black marker. I would think this was a fake except for the fact that it has the "Sample product - not for sale" on the front. Can anybody verify?

Surely there must be more demos etc. Before 2001 floating around out there?

A unique take on rap, ska and other forms of black music? The logical result of multi-cultural Britain? Or a lucky young man spouting bad poetry who struck a chord with the Radio 1 playlist selectors? Well, its not for me to say but whether you like or dislike Mr. Skinner you cant deny that he sounds like nothing else out there and any artists that can have their own instantly recognisable sound is to be commended.

A lot of people dismiss him because of the way he emcees, but they should look beyond that. At least he isn't just another British imitation of the American style. And if you listen to what he's rhyming about, you'll probably find that you'll probably be agreeing with most of what he says. A truly taleneted individual with a great sense of humour. Tracks like "Too Much Brandy" and "The Irony Of It All" show Eminem for the unfunny crap-peddler that he has become, and "Weak Become Heroes" will strike a chord with anyone remotley involved with the M25 days. "It's Too Late" is simply beautiful. Not for everyone, but at least give it a chance.
