As someone that has lived in Manchester for my entire life, I can’t quite express how much the latest track by NE6 hit me as they reverently expressed their contempt to the shitshow that is playing out in modern day society. Human Resources is proof of the power music contains. The Grime Hip Hop artists may create a sound that is pretty far from musical revolutionaries such as Patti Smith, but the message still as potent. Any lyrics containing the words “Fuck Theresa May” will always win massive respect from me, but the track went so far past the typical crass Grime lyricism. The track was written to depict the artists view on the recent tragedies that have happened in the UK and all across the world with a focus on Grenfell & the Manchester Arena Bombings. The sentiment is made even more sobering by the resounding, haunting Hip Hop beat which spills ominous beats and kicks around NE6’s Grime lyrical bars. The track flows at the perfect pace which allows NE6’s antagonised passion palpable.
