To quote this Skepta interview:
Hypetrak: Were people in Jamaica aware of grime? What’s their perception of the genre?Skepta: When we got to the airport, kids were outside welcoming us screaming "Boy Better Know." The internet has made everything so small. They understand of the grime beats because it’s similar to dancehall while other instrumentals are a bit too fast. Overall I think they like the lyrics more because we rap like dancehall artists in the way we formulate our lyrics to build the crowd. We work it to get that rewind, that encore. American rappers don’t really want that. They just want people to dance, they don’t want the interruption, the reload. In grime and dancehall, the rewind is everything!As we saw the difference between A$AP Flop and BBK at the Red Bull Culture Clash. Speaking of which, none of the above would be possible if not for Jamaican sound systems.
