Buff Nuff

Roots Manuva
He might have invented grime, but to youthful ears Roots Manuva will resemble nothing more than a ragga Hadouken!. Yes, we’re trapped in a knackered 1983 Asteroids machine while Roots speed-raps about being buff, getting buff stuff and all-round buffitude in general. Sad, really, that a pioneer can become so influential that he ends up like a new-rave Shaggy.
