Chipmunk - Transition

Grime's teenybopper wants us all to know he's a big boy now, with his sights set on international fame. There's a whole lot of cloying, imported US gloss on this LP, and personally, I would have liked something more authentic and London centric. UK emcees have spent a long time overcoming dominating US influences (which is why So Solid were, in their own volatile way, so pivotal) so it kinda sux for grime that one it's most promising young'un has tried to blend North London swagger with slick, urban US shine.
