And he's "slightly bothered..."

Aitch has given a new interview with some bold opinions about grime's impact on younger generations.

The rapper returned with a new single this week, going blow for blow with West London artist AJ Tracey.

AJ obviously came out of the grime scene, playing radio sets as a kid, but the music both make in 2020 is far removed from the sound.

Speaking to Capital Xtra, Aitch spoke about the Stormzy vs. Wiley row, and offered a different perspective.

At one point he asserts: "No one younger than me is bothered about grime..."

Aitch then asserts that he is "slightly bothered" about the sound, but only due to personal interest.

Does he have a point?

Well, it's noticeable that Stormzy returned fire to Wiley over a drill beat, emphasising the creative variety available to UK rap artists.

Equally, the grime artists who have prevailed over the past few years - Kano being a good example - have grown with their audience.

Some, however, have pointed out that Aitch does go a bit far. After all, grime has always been a London sound, and there's a slew of producers and MCs working on the fringes.

It's an interesting talking point - check out a snippet of the interview below.
