WHEN YT STARTED in 2008, we used to do a lot of filming with young grime artists. Some filming was done out on the streets and some in the studio 7 at the Youth and Connexions in Grays.
Without getting all po-faced, the studio was very important as a diversion for some young people and as a place to develop talents and skills.
In many ways the studio has been mothballed, which is a shame. However, the rappers are still out there, including YMF. The two rappers hail from East Tilbury, so we went down to Gobions Park to here what they had to say.
