How's Life in London?
"All the girls in Queens ask me ... seen in the Philippines they ask me .. and all my Spanish brethren ask me ..." And what they all want to ask the London Posse is How's Life In London? And Rodney P and Bionic would be only too keen to tell all and sundry. The London Posse realised early on in the hip hop stakes it wasn't worth taking on the American rappers at their own game so they twisted things, used their native tongue, the city slang, played up the colloquialisms, in the same way that London reggae MCs like Tippa Irie and Smiley Culture had done a few years previously.
