The Streets

Mike Skinner (aka The Streets) definitely has talent. His style, sometimes called "Garage," is a form of Hip Hop that is very different from the US styles. He sings about waht he know: partying, annoying friends and trying to score. As he says, "Here we say 'bird,' not 'bitches." His first two albums, "Original Pirate Material" and "A Grand Don't Come for Free," are among my all-time favorties of any genre. A third album has just been released, but I have not heard it yet (although, judging from the samples below, I suspect I'll like it just fine).
