So last year, I fancied writing again and I ended up making a BuzzFeed article for fun. A year on, I’m really into creating content again, so it’s only nice to share a few more Grime gifts you should be giving this Christmas.

6. I Love Skepta edible cake topper

I Love Skepta cake topper

I swear when “Konnichiwa” hit its first sales milestone, I checked and no one tweeted the words: “Album went silver; celebrate that”. Shocking. Anyway, it since went gold, earned him a Mercury and all sorts. Everyone’s a Skepta fan in 2016, so go grab yourself a cake topper to show love.

9. Red Monkey x Dizzee Rascal Tongue N Cheek jeans

Dizzee Rascal - Tongue N Cheek jeans

Graphic-laden jeans were the wave in the late ’00s. No idea how this Red Monkey collaboration came to be, but Dizzee “Tongue N Cheek” jeans have been sat on this website for 9 years, and they’ll stay on there for 9 more if no one speaks up.

13. Nokia Charger Wire t-shirt

And there we have it. Obviously, go check albums from everyone that dropped lately too (Wiley’s is proper over due now). Explore elsewhere if you like things like Grime Pokemon cards, and make sure you avoid them terrible copy-and-paste, copyright-infringing Red Bubble t-shirts you see around, because you’re better than that.
