A few completely lacking-in-substance notes on last night's great release party for the Run the Road grime compilation:

- Jammer looks like Lil Jon! Except a lot skinnier! And his horror-movie sound FX and beats are more scary and ominous than Lil Jon's. And when he grabs the mic, he's about as agile as Lil Jon, which is to say not very.
- D Double E is also very skinny; he's almost frighteningly gaunt. Something I read on Blissblog about grime MCs--that "hungry grain o' the voice"--seems a little too literal here.
- D Double E's real name is Darren!

Check out Sasha's photo for illustration. I didn't run into Sasha the entire time I was there, but the photo explains why: dude was in the front row.
