Professor Green ft Chynaman and Cores – Upper Clapton Dance
Professor Green may be a McLovin lookalike more famous for falling over or getting raped by Jin than any of his recorded output, but fuck me if this track doesn’t go harder than “The Count” Michael Bisping. Top five rap beats of the year, easily, and every more than matches up to it on the flow, even if the Murder Mile is actually in my old manner of Harringay rather than Upper Clapton. First time I moved to Turnpike Lane a teacher friend of mine walked me down the Murder Mile at night, helpfully pointing out the corpse spots along the way. I think she mentioned 31 fatalities in all? Good kebab shop at the near end of it as well, recommended.
