Seth Sentry, “Float Away”

Since The Streets introduced me to grime I’m predisposed to hear disaffection in every white brit rapper. I loved his music, but it’s all delivered like the realizations of a man who’s hit bottom and keeps noticing new, awful pieces of himself. It didn’t help that Dizzee Rascal hit the scene at the same time and spit like he was on a rollercoaster powered by flow.

So I’m probably projecting a bit of that same boredom in Seth Sentry’s voice, but at least the message is a little more inspirational than the chavvy London projects where Mike Skinner’s life fell apart. Besides, the world needed its first British frat rapper, as demonstrated in this video about saying “fuck it” to formality.
