Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius PipGet Better

And once again Scroobius Pip emerges as the voice of moral reasoning on that part of the UK’s youth who don’t mind a bit of thoughtful polemic with their percussive loops and simple, melodic synth dance.

For when Dappy from N-Dubz shines in stupidity with mixed messages of abusive texts and anti-bullying campaigns, this duo become beacons of intelligent analysis in modern UK rap.

Aware of the bleakness of “small-town syndrome” and a lack of understanding in sex and alcohol, ‘Get Better’ encourages a genuine positivity in educating their audience, emphasising choice and self-motivation.

An over-simplififed outlook maybe, and not quite as anthemic as ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’ but few catchy four-minute pop songs will offer more this year.
