3TM Year In Review: Grime Artist of 2009 – Tinchy Stryder

He may not be the underground favourite but Grime MC Tinchy Stryder catapulted the homegrown UK genre to unprecedented levels of recognition and popularity with his major label debut album Catch 22.

Whilst the project was hardly groundbreaking and lacked the grittiness upon which the Grime scene was founded, the album was a solid effort and proved a corss-over hit within the mainstream music market.

With the success of Catch 22 behind him and a much more diverse fan base, the prospects for next year look very promising for the young MC. Hopefully he will be able to use his own recognition to bring several of his peers into the spotlight, therefore fully cementing the genre as a valid art form within the UK.
