Joker’s Gully Goon Estate

I don’t know how he does it, but Joker just keeps throwing out amazing tunes at an unbelievable rate. He’s like a supernatural sushi chef who slices tuna thinner than anyone else believes is possible. Elijah & Skilliam played his new collaboration with Terror Danjah, ‘Gully Goon Estate’, on their Rinse show last Tuesday and it’s huge, as you would expect. Occurring just under 16 minutes into the mix, it hits you in the head like a flaming molotov, making you want to pistol-whip your Grandma and skank until your little legs are mere bloody stumps. Hopefully this will make it on to the album, it’s dirt.

So, what’s the point of this typically nonsensical preamble? I want you to read Dan Hancox’s article ’2009: The Year Grime Began to Pay’, that’s the point. It’s basically an exploration of how and why grime — or whatever it became depending on how you look at it — was so successful in 2009. There’s even a guide included at the end which selects and explains a few of grime’s defining moments. It’s all very interesting.

I’ve added a Crazy Titch video after the jump. He was a good rapper, even if he couldn’t distinguish between right and wrong.
