Notes:
The year 2000. Making beats on stolen software, spitting lyrics on tower block rooftops and beaming out signals from pirate radio aerials, a group of teenagers raised on UK garage, American hip-hop and Jamaican reggae stumble upon a dazzling new genre. Against all odds, these young MCs will grow up to become some of the UK's most famous musicians, scoring number one records and dominating British pop culture for years to come. But getting there won't be easy. Successive governments will attempt to control their music, their behaviour and even their clothes. The media will demonise them and the police will shut down their clubs. Drawn from over a decade of in-depth interviews and research with all the key MCs, DJs and industry players, this book tells the remarkable story of how a group of outsiders from the margins of urban life went on to create a genre that has become a British institution.
