Mike Skinner is The StreetsAs a rule, I hate all music recommended to me, but today Rachel gave me a copy of The Streets album, Original Pirate Material. The Streets is made up of only one guy, Mike Skinner, and he's getting a lot of flak for being the British Eminem. Now I don't think that's an insult- I like Eminem for what he is. Skinner's music is a little more on the dance end of things- but his rhyme style is definitely a close cousin of Marshall Mathers. Anyway- it's a good album- like the screenplay to Snatch being sung by Jason Statham doing an impression of Eminem- or something. Additional info: Skinner can't act.
