Roll Deep Crew In At The Deep End (Album Sampler)
- Words: DeepSix
- Label: Relentless
Do grime icons Roll Deep have enough street credibility to get away with anything? As this sampler shows, either they do...or they think they do. While "When I‘m ‘Ere" and even "Heat Up" (with its nursery rhyme lyrics) keep it respectably gully, other songs may have fans up in arms. The hook from The Maisonettes‘ 1982 throwback hit "Heartache Avenue" forms the basis for "The Avenue"-a Roll Deep stab at Jay-Z‘s "Hard Knock Life"? Only time will tell if the crew has the staying power and commercial viability of Mr. Carter.
