SkinnyMan is being touted as the next big thing to follow in the wake of The Streets et al. This single has already been picked fro the Radio 1 play list and the album from which it comes (‘Council Estate Of Mind‘) has highly acclaimed. Along with his partner in crime, DJ Flip, SkinnyMan has recently been touring with ‘the Welsh Wu Tang’ aka Goldie Lookin’ Chain. There are many more dates to come (check the web for details).

‘No Big Ting’ has an unusually self deprecating rap to a backdrop of bass, beats and strings. The rapping is slick and defiantly urban, and the story is the usual tale of deprivation and the hard life. Also included on the single is the title track from the album, a cleverly constructed monologue with a light jazz tinkling behind.
