Single Review: Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip – Get Better (Sunday Best)

Single Reviews

Dan Le Sac v Scroobius Pip

Once again, Scroobius Pip emerges as the voice of moral reasoning within the UK rap community, with another bit of thoughtful polemic backed by Dan Le Sac’s percussive loops and simple, melodic synth dance. For, whereas Dappy from N-Dubz shines in stupidity with his mixed messages of sending abusive texts while fronting anti-bullying campaigns, this duo are the beacons of intelligent analysis in modern UK rap. Aware of the bleakness of “small town syndrome” and a lack of understanding in sex and alcohol, ‘Get Better’ encourages a genuine positivity amongst the duo’s audience, emphasising choice and self-motivation. An over-simplified outlook maybe, and not quite as anthemic as ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’, but few catchy four-minute pop songs will offer more this year. TM
