I’ve been working on this post for while so that’s why its taken a while to go up. Its been a mad few months for the grime scene with all of the big album releases this year and with artists from the scene getting in the charts. Also with Skepta Doing a song with P diddy. So when Tinchy stryder Dropped Game over on his Youtube Channel on the 1′st of November featuring the signed Chart topper UK Urban artists. ( GIGG’S, PROFESSOR GREEN, TINNIE TEMPAH, DEVLIN, AND EXAMPLE.
The Certain craze Is back again, With a massive roster of mc’s on one tune. There has been A lot of Internet hype with both of these tunes and Game over has got more exposure from the commercial market and as where as Pow 2011 has appealed To a broader market It still has put a smile on the Grime scene’s face.
So the big question Pow 2011 or Game over ?
Definetly Pow 2011
The Thing what is diluting grime Is shit like Game over…
But yes Tinchy woke up and he done Done the game over remix with Real Grime Mc’s on It featuring Ghetts, Slix, Griminal, Dot Rotten, Fuda Guy, Wretch 32, Roachee and Maxsta.
There Is also a female Take over Remix
It is Definetly better Compared To the orginal But still Not better Than pow 2011 Neither really Is Pow 2011 even Comparable To The Orginal Pow, Which Is arguably The best Grime Track ever, Also It was one of the very few “Grime” tracks To ever Get High up In the charts. It was a pure Grime Track, It wasn’t a Pop Track It was just straight up Grime. Also As well It was a vey Controversial Track With it being banned In clubs. I remember being In the crowd When I was a kid and It all Kicked off in notting hill carnival when It was played, It was also in all of the Happy slap videos (That’s how old this song is). It was a massive hit at the festivals as well with the most craziest mosh pits you could ever experience. This Changed the Grime for ever and revolutionised The scene and gave grime more exposure.
This is a a Classic for upper class White teenagers Playing Pow at their House party’s in area’s like Hampsted Heath.
The Only Track That Has managed to do What Pow did To date is Probably Next hype By Tempa T. The track Is full of endless Hype.
It Is a grime classic But The song looses Its credebillity with Cringe worthy kids Sipping on smirnoff ice and pretending they are drunk While They Know all Of the words and pronounce The slang Incorrect at there shitty house party’s. It still is a grime track and is one of my favourite tracks of all time.
But You still really Can’t compare Next hype To pow. Pow Is in A league of it’s own As the same As Next Hype is.
Also The Instrumental of Pow known as Foward Riddim Produced By Dexplict Is Probably one of the most Recognized Grime Instrumentals Ever.
There was a few other Songs That Sprung from Pow. Backwards Riddim, Forward 2, Fire camp forward 2 and Busta ryhmes, Lil jon, Dizzee rascal remix.
So Pow has been Milked a bit, But you never Really hear It any Grime raves these days ?
So now the review of Pow 2011
So when I first herd this I had a massive smile on my face. My first Impression of Pow 2011 Produced By silencer Was That it kind of sounds like a game show theme tune.
Also That with Wiley’s verse with that bobodudududadada, It kinds of seems like Wiley is trying to fill in D double e’s verse in the original with oaaaaaah oahhhhhhhhhhhh.
Also why is Chipmunk on Pow 2011?
Also A lot of people have been talking about that if it should Have sounded similar to the original.
My favourite verse Is probably between P money or JME.
Also Where is Skepta or Tempa T ?
It Isn’t Hyped as much as the orginal.
It was also Nice to hear Kano on Grime track Where has he been lately ?
Also here are a few versions of Pow other mc’s have done
Overall The song is a banger But It won’t please everyone because People will complain you Shouldn’t have meddled With a classic.
Well Done To Lethal Bizzle
They are Recording The video as we speak so When It’s out expect a post about it.
When Pow 2011 is out go and Buy it !
