And Now for Somefing Completely Different...

So today we have Jamie T, who I had confused with Jamie Liddell for a while, but if you know that there are two different people, it soon becomes clear that they are, well, different. Jamie T is a twenty year old from South London, and like Dizzee Rascal, The Streets, Lily Allen, and Lady Sovereign among others, he's created a super-exciting cultural polyglot that mixes rap, ska, samples, and acoustic guitar. Like Lily Allen, who he's now written some songs with for his new album, he built his fanbase via mixtapes and MySpace.
