Boomkat Product Review:
North London's biggest grime gob drops his 1st album since 2010 with the crew-crammed 'Integrity>'. Still ruthlessly confident and teamed with some of the best UK producers out there, JME puts his weight behind his boasts in 16 cuts lyrically dealing with everything from twitter to vegetarianism with that blade-edged diction that still stands out from the crowd. He handles a number of beats himself, at best in the G-funk swagger of 'Again' with D Double E and the darkside trap slap of the title track and finishing word, 'Integrity', but our favourite moments occur in the Joker-produced 'Test' with Wiley's hilarious interjection, "hold tight the people who leave grime and think you're gonna achieve something/don't work/I tried it before all you/bye", and again in the uniquely UK rufige of 'The Money' trading bars with an on-form Wiley. All in all, with the sharp flows and divrese range of riddims, this could be the album that pushes JME further into the view of curious onlookers and those whose interest was piqued by his cameo behind Kayne. His long-term fans will be all over it like a fresh Nando's veggie wrap.
