A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Roll Deep for charting at #1 today on the UK charts with new single “Good Times.”
Truthfully speaking I’m not really a fan of the song itself, but I’m happy these guys are finally getting some mainstream recognition. I’ve been a Roll Deep fan for many years, from the pirate radio stations days, to the Channel U heyday, all the way to now. These guys are like the God Fathers (along with So Solid) of this kind of music. Wiley is Grime, he pretty much started the genre.
So with all that said, despite me not particularly being a fan of “Good Times,” I have to give credit where credit is due. They’ve worked hard for so long and paved the way for the likes of Chipmunk and Tinchy Stryder, so it’s really good to see them enjoying the limelight and some much overdue recognition. We salute you!
I’m going to leave you with one of my favourite Roll Deep songs “Heat Up” – enjoy:
