Scroobius Pip on SB.TV’s ‘One Take’ [Video]

When you think of UK emcees, the likes of Wiley, Skepta and Professor Green probably spring to mind (okay, I’ll throw Trim‘s name into the hat to even the mainstream-underground balance). Scroobius Pip is a name that easily goes amiss in these conversations, but with the impressive Distraction Pieces LP and a lovable, down-to-earth wit (I mean, who poses with toasters in press shots?!) in his arsenal, you’d be a sucker to sleep on the Essex-bred wordsmith.

Coming off his recent UK touring travels, Mr. Pip won camera time with SB.TV for this special “One Take” performance, where the bearded lyricist gave a slightly altered acoustic rendition of his “Introdiction” track, accompanied by Worgie and his guitar.

“So far the ‘likes’ bar is beating the ‘dislikes’ so that’s good! Knew we would anger some of the kids on there though… Always a pleasure to shake things up…,” says Pip on his Facebook page. Check it out below and do lend an ear to Distraction Pieces — it doesn’t disappoint.
