The latest instrumental to take the Grime scene by storm is Blay Vision‘s ‘Cammy Riddim‘. With just about every MC wanting to prove what they can do with their own version, we thought it was only right to take a look back at another instrumental that had a similar impact.
Released back in 2009, Dot Rotten‘s ‘Rowdy Riddim‘ was another one of those instrumentals that caused a huge wave within Grime. Regardless of their style, the instrumental had a universal appeal to MCs leading to many dropping freestyles of their own as well as Jamal Edwards picking up the instrumental and using it across various freestyles on SBTV. Remixed this year, Dot Rotten came to shake the scene up once more by dropping ‘Rowdy Riddim Reborn‘ a flip on the original that once again saw MCs sprinting to the booth to get theirs recorded.
