Shock: Further evidence of decent British rap

After discovering the Mitchell Brothers and their ode to Michael Jackson last week, along comes another halfway decent British rap track - this time by Essex boy Scroobius Pip. According to Myspace, he is what Willis was talking about.

The track is called The Beat That My Heart Skipped - which is also the name of a French film about a man who has to choose between his dad and his piano (in French it's called De Battre Mon Coeur S'est ArrĂȘtĂ©, translating-things fans). The song doesn't have anything to do with that, though. I just didn't have anything to put in this bit.

Backed by dance guru Dan Le Sac, Scroobius raps about love at first sight (possibly with a stripper, we can't be sure) while pausing to note: "Well, good goddamn and other such phrases, I haven't heard a beat like this in ages". If you like Reverend and the Makers, or Happy Mondays, then this will rock your bottom.

The Beat That My Heart Skipped is out on 10 September, and can be viewed in youtubular fashion below.

Warning: This video contains beards.


PS: The single is a follow-up to the duo's first release from April, Thou Shalt Not Kill, which is also worth checking out, if only for the lyric: "Thou Shalt not think any male over the age of 30 that plays with a child that is not their own is a paedophile. Some people are just nice."
