Sarf London songs

At My lewisham I learnt that great New Cross rapper Blade is releasing a new single.

"Gripper The Pitbull" is one of the best South London songs of the 1990s (along with Carter's "The Only Living Boy in New Cross", Remarc's "Sound Murderer", Alabama 3's "Old Purple Tin", and the Galliano song that mentions the number 2 bus).

While we're here, check out the video of Alabama 3's beautiful "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash", featuring Jerry Dammers standing in queue I think.
