Stream Novelist's Defiant Grime Anthem "Ignorant and Wot"

The real sound of LDN.


Novelist channels Boy In Da Corner-era Dizzee Rascal on his new grime gem, "Ignorant and Wot." Similar to the E3 legend, Nov is also an underrated whiz behind the boards and produced the track himself. Matching the unassuming no-frills structure of the beat, Nov sprays roundabout bars, capturing the track's melody pattern almost perfectly. The 18-year-old MC and his crew, The Square, seem to be doing all the right things right now, and this can be traced back to their principled insistence on keeping their aesthetic as simplistically grimey as possible. Everything about Novelist screams London—and by the sounds of it, he doesn't want it any other way.
