Diddy gladly gets Grimey

‘Team UK stand up. This is the Grime mix.’ – Diddy

Five rewinds later, I’ve finally heard the long-awaited Skepta Grime remix of Diddy Dirty Money’s Hello Good Morning and it’s bizarre but amazing to hear the US rap mogul utter these words. 

This latest reincarnation of the track has been a long time coming, the Boy Better Know family are in the studio at a famous London radio station and Skepta is almost beside himself. He’s been Tweeting all day about this momentous occasion: ‘Today’s date will go down in Grime history.’ ‘Endless Love to everyone for nominating me to do the HelloGoodMorning remix. All my Grime crew stand up tall.’

My favourite lyric from the track: ‘I’m a UK bad boy, and just for the record, I like tea but I don’t like crumpets’. Representing.

Diddy came on the phone live on air: ‘What up Team UK?! I toooold you, I toooold you… Thank you to everybody on Twitter… I love the whole UK movement now, got their own style and sound. I’m blessed to be a part of it and have a chance to feel the feeling of being on a Grime track. I’m ready to hear it again. Team UK stand up.’

He said he has Skeppy’s back to approach the US market and he hopes Skepta has his for the UK. This could be a pivotal moment in time for those who love Grime and hopefully now the massive loyal following listening to tonight’s premiere will be there to support the movement every step of the way around the globe. In the meantime, bring on the video!
