ZEBADIAH - THE BEST MC IN CLIFTONVILE?


This music video to local MC Zebadiah's new single “Giro Junkie” is doing the rounds on Facebook at the moment. For those of you who haven’t heard of him, I believe he’s a Cliftonville-based grime artist who’s just released “Giro Junkie” from his forthcoming Athelstan Road EP on iTunes. It’s only 79p so if you want to support Thanet’s local music scene, then I recommend you nip by to the online iTunes store and buy it. Fo' shizzle.

Grime, Hip Hop or Drum 'n' Bass might not be everybody’s cup of tea, but no matter what musical genre it belongs to, it’s important to recognize that local music should be supported and embraced, otherwise Thanet will lag behind other more fruitful musical hubs like Medway, for instance. Besides, Zebadiah’s lyrics are quite socially relevant – he refers to Jobseekers Allowance, being on housing benefit, not being able to find a job, etc. – so fair play to the guy. I think it’s great. It’s the sound of the streets, blud.

A word of caution: explicit swear words are contained within this music video. If you are of a sensitive disposition, then please do put some ear muffs on. Thank you.
