    Grime influence

    Kanye didn't just bring a bunch of grime artists on to the stage with him when he did "All Day" at the BRITs, a few days later he performed at London venue KOKO with Skepta, JME, Novelist, Meridian Dan and others from the grime scene. With "All Day" leading into "That's Not Me" and JME's "96 Fuckries" followed by "Cold," this show made it clear that grime's raw, relentless energy has much in common with Kanye's most punishing songs.

    With Drake's grime love affair in full swing (shout out the BBK tattoo) Kanye needs to come through with a Skepta feature, or even better a posse cut with a bunch of all-star grime MCs.
