Here he sets the tone for the song that is about technological advances and how they have changed the UK grime home-grown scene. The song also samples quotes from Bruce Lees Enter the Dragon a film about philosophical insight and betrayal.
The lyrics are mainly on the topic of change and its affect on hip hop. Twang claims that in the past, for example before social networks were used to promote songs, the hip hop scene was more creative in its establishment. Twang suggests that the hip hop scene used to be about, who had the best flows and spit the best but now it is about who gets paid the most and holds the best tools. He also references back to how he helped young rappers and received no thanks.
With a catchy hook and skilful wordplay and intertextuality, this track has been getting a lot of respect from DJs such as 1Extras Semtex, as well as YouTube surfers. The track is lyrically to the point with a good pace and rhythm. If you like tracks that are more about the words and their meaning than the music then this is for you.
