Craig David Talks UK Urban Music
The R&B singer says he opened doors for the likes of Tinchy Stryder, Dizzee Rascal and more...?
28-year-old UK R&B star Craig David, recently said in an interview that he opened the doors for urban acts such as Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryderand Taio Cruz. Craig also added that a certain MC should be getting much more props than he is currently getting.
Craig David told ITN: "I came from a scene that opened the doors for a lot of the artists that are coming through now. The Taio Cruz's, the Jay Seans, the Dizzee Rascals, Wileys, Chipmunks. All these people are from the same era that I started off with The Artful Dodger. Kano is one of those guys that doesn't get the recognition he deserves. He should be up there with all of those guys as lyrically he is on fire.”
He added: "I'm happy for Jay Sean and Taio Cruz having great success in America as well. I think UK soul; R&B should always be appreciated in America. I'm thankful that I was able to open doors back in the day with that."
Craig David’s new album: Signed, Sealed, Delivered - is out now.
