Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip

"Thou Shalt Always Kill" by Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip... Unquestionably the single of the year... Hilarious urban polemic... A righteous rhyme invective; presented to the yoof of today as the only relevant guide to savvy living. Ostensibly hip hop, this track nevertheless possesses a range and depth that ultimately transcends genre. Scroobius directs one accusation at 50 Cent and his posse(s) though:

"Thou shalt remember that guns, bitches, and bling were never part of the four elements... And never will be."

Yes, to paraphrase the poetry of Scroobius, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip are just a band. However, precious few bands around today demand attention on such an unequivocal level. So fuck Pop Idol, fuck NME, fuck repetitive generic music... Embrace these two. Embrace a visceral new strand of hip-hop/poetry that never fails to impress.

Other Le Sac Vs Pip tracks of note are "Live" and "Angles", both located on their myspace:

The Knifehandchop mix of that Thou Shalt track is total killer as well, worth checking out.
