NOISEY Blackpool: The Controversial Rise of Blackpool Grime

Watch the sequel to NOISEY Blackpool: One Year Later -- https://vice.video/2i539Oq Noisey Blackpool: The Controversial Rise of Blackpool Grime, hosted by Poet and starring Afghan Dan, Soph Aspin and Little T. The last few years have seen a huge resurgence in UK grime and there are now a whole bunch of talented MCs around the UK with growing fanbases. However, when a Youtube channel called Blackpool Grime Media, started getting a lot of attention earlier this year, it took a lot of people by surprise. Not only were most of the MCs on there extremely young, but they all seems to be insulting each other using some very offensive language. Plus the amount the views they were getting was insane. Noisey sent a team up to follow the three key players in the scene - Little T, Soph Aspin and Afghan Dan.Why was this happening? Why Blackpool? Was the beef real and did these kids have what it takes to forge a genuine career?
