So, I’m listening to some R&B and decide to speed it up, Grime always does the trick, but what do I listen to?
I wanted to hear something creative, different, something that I had no heard, So ‘P-Money – Money Over Everything‘, I had heard freestyles and short sets by P, but not an actual track.
Now, skipping through, I come across Track 5 1 UP, so far its full-on Grime, no mainstream crossover attempts, 1 UP possesses a youthful feeling, more so as it samples and the concept is based around the Nintendo classic, Mario.
P Money himself displays his lyrical ability nicely, as he uses characters and props from the famous game within his rhymes, it merges with the beat extremely well, it is fun, refreshing, exciting and really emphatic.
“It’s My Game, You Need To Jump Outta”
The concept is great, however not always is a good concept lead to a good track, in this case though, P Money pulls it off nicely, It remains true to the genre whilst those who are not as into Grime may still enjoy, any gamer can relate and its overall vibe is not as negative as the stereotypes of Grime are considered.
With 1UP & Money Over Everything, P Money has established himself as one of the ones to watch out for as the scene continues to flourish.
