Right now, Tottenham-born emcee Meridian Dan is the biggest name in UK grime, riding high off genuine U.K. chart hits like “One Two Drinks” and “German Whip”. In advance of his debut LP, due on PMR Records next year comes this: a mid-paced, murky club banger that contemplates the phenomenon of being somewhere between rags and riches. He might have become a professional tiler, might have “bought a little three-bed in Kent” — but now he finds himself in the more enviable position of calculating how many bank notes you can squeeze in a briefcase. It’s nothing revolutionary, and President T and Wiley guest spots are serviceable at best — but you can’t doubt the man’s hunger.
