Skepta has been hitting the headlines in recent months, getting hip hop props from Drake and Kanye and releasing underground smashes That's Not Me and Shutdown. Now it's over his brother JME to shine again. JME, aka Jamie Adenuga, returned to Twitter after a short absence (much to the relief of those who love his stream-of-consciousness quips) to announce his new album Integrity> (due early May), which will include appearances from his big bro, plus Big Narstie, Wiley, Frisco, Giggs and Jammer. 

If the track and video for Integrity> are anything to go by, he's on fighting form, slating jumped-up newcomers as well as the music industry (who he clearly thinks didn't know how to develop grime artists when trying to bring them to the wider public in the noughties). There's also a great message for those who don't like his particular musical genre onTaking Over? (It Ain't Working), when he spits: "If you don't like G-R-I-M-E, then you got no taste like vegan cheese." Safe to say, it's good to have him back in the game.
