I remember Shotgun telling me (half a decade ago) that her favorite emcee on the planet was some cat called Badness. Badness, she explained, was an ill emcee from London, though he sounds like he’s from Pluto. She praised him for his ability to spit hot lava with that twang we call Jamaican patois. I recall dismissing the notion that some gruff scrub from England was worthy of such acclaim. Boy was I wrong! Badness everyone, this tune be the hottest one in the UK right now, ya dun kno.
