Documentary: The Police vs Grime Music

Written by Nigel D. / 05.29.14

Noisey presents a new documentary about London’s grime scene and its relationship with the police hosted by JME and featuring Meridian Dan, Jammer and Big Narstie.

In February, Just Jam’s event at The Barbican was cancelled at the last minute. It was an event that seemed to be yet another victim of the London authorities now notorious risk assessment procedure, Form 696.

Told through the eyes of Jamie Adenuga—grime outfit Boy Better Know’s tee-total, vegan frontman who was booked to perform at the Barbican—Noisey investigates what the reasons behind the sudden cancellation were. He speaks to lawyers, journalists and fellow artists like Jammer, Meridian Dan and Big Narstie to find out whether the prohibiting of grime music events by London police is a cause for concern, rather than a solution to crime in the capital.

Documentary: Corruption, Cocaine And Murder In Trinidad

Written by Nigel D. / 05.20.14

Around midnight on May 3, Dana Seetahal, a prominent attorney and senator in Trinidad and Tobago, had just left a casino in the capital of Port of Spain when her vehicle was stopped by another car blocking the road. A van pulled up alongside and let loose a burst of gunfire, killing her in a well orchestrated hit.

Her murder was one of approximately 170 that have occurred in the Caribbean nation so far this year, putting it on course for one of the highest murder rates in the world. The country saw only 93 murders in 1999. Last year, there were 407.

VICE News visited the slums of Port of Spain and spoke with police, activists, community leaders, and gangsters to understand the country’s decade-plus spike in killings. Many of the murders are attributed to ruthless and politically connected street gangs who control territories that are sometimes no larger than a city block. The gangs fight over lucrative government contracts meant to provide social services and combat unemployment.
