I said years ago, that Dot Rotten was the truth, I caught flack, but fuck it, but as an MC and producer, his talent can’t be denied. He’s reinvented himself quite a few times, from Young Dot, to Dot Rotten, after signing to a major label and not liking how things were (especially in that climate, where everything other than conforming was a risk they were not prepared to take), he chose to walk away, integrity intact. The scene was in a reshuffle, and some quality material went overlooked by the masses, somewhat resulting in another evolution, into producer Zeph Ellis. As I said, talent can’t be denied, and he was back on top, contributing to some pivotal Grime moments, providing the instrumental for AJ Tracy’s breakthrough hit Naila. Fast forward and Dot Rotten has resurfaced to bring the balance back.
Now I’m off the radar clearly, as I wasn’t aware of any tension, or I just don’t check for things as such, but with this Organised Grime freestyle, it’s incredibly clear that he’s sending for P Money.
It was some years ago when I came to hear of P Money, who was continuously sending for Ghetto, and though eventually he got his response, and though Ghetts remains untarnished, P did go onto maintain a decent run and carve a name for himself, so with Dot applying the pressure, it’s intriguing to see where this goes. Aside of the send, it’s great to hear Dot in full effect, and as the scene has established itself better, it would be great for him to continue with his style and sound.
