Grime has become a British institution. But it wasn't always that way. Emerging from the council estates of east London at the turn of the millennium, this innovative and controversial music was created by a group of defiant teenagers, shut out by the music industry and harassed by the police, media and government. Making beats on stolen software, spitting lyrics on tower blocks rooftops and beaming out signals from pirate radio aerials, they created a pop culture phenomenon against incredible odds. 

Drawn from over a decade of in-depth interviews with all key figures, from Dizee and Wiley to Stormzy and Skepta, and featuring frontline reporting from dancefloors and riots alike, in this remarkable book Dan Hancox tells the story of how a group pf outsiders fought back against gentrification and institutional oppression and in doing so changed music forever.
