With grime music once again all the rage throughout the UK, the country is being exposed to a whole new range of rappers, each with their own rich vernacular. But since most of these MCs hail from London, understanding their bars has become quite a chore for anyone based outside the M25. So we thought we’d break down some of the more confusing lingo you can expect to find being spouted today.

Peng Tings (n) – “All these peng tings calling my phone” – Tempa T

While the word peng was originally used to describe something that is good, it has since been narrowed down to describe a beautiful woman. Making peng the female equivalent of buff. Not to be confused with the word ‘paintings’ though, otherwise you look like a right mug.

Eskiboy (n) – “Eskiboy, A-listed” – Wiley

This is one you have probably heard if you have ever whacked on a Wiley banger. Originally taken from Wiley’s first rap name Eskimo Boy, Eskiboy, has become a calling card for the MC, letting you know that he is here and ready to spit some mad fire.

Dench (adj) – “Dench!” – Lethal Bizzle

Another calling card here, but one that seems to have become so much more. Originally started by Lethal Bizzle to announce himself, the word has quickly become a shortcut for saying something is good. Stay Dench, the name of Bizzle’s clothing line, incorporates the idea that Dench is also a way of life for some.

E3 LON (n) – “E3 LON” – Boy Better Know

While it was popularised by the gang Boy Better Know, the ‘E3 LON’ tag has been used by many an MC who hails from the Tower Hamlets part of London. The E3 part is obviously a reference to the area’s postcode. However, the district also includes Canary Wharf, so don’t get confused about which part they are on about.

Tiger Tiger (n) – “It’s the tiger tiger” – Skepta

Once again, a calling card, this time used by Skepta. No one is quite sure where this nickname came from, but we like to think that it was the Mercury Prize winner’s love of Frosties that helped create it.

Whip (n) – “See man driving a German whip” – Meridian Dan

A fairly common one these days but a ‘whip’ is basically another way of saying a car. The origin of this is disputed, as some believe it comes from the horse & cart days, using a whip to make the horses move, while others think it comes from the way boy-racers whip themselves round corners. Normally ‘whips’ are described by using the last half of the car’s name. Rari for Ferrari, Gatti for Bugatti, Orsa, Ansit, you get the idea.</span

Hotted Up (v) – “He got hotted up, oh well” – ‘Dizzee Rascal

For years, people believed that ‘hotted up’ meant to get stoned. ‘Hot’ referring to the lighter being lit or bongs fired up. But it actually means to get beaten up beyond belief. So if you are ever out in London and someone asks if you want to get hotted up, don’t follow them back to theirs.

Bredding (v) – “Are you bredding me cuz?” – JME

This is sometimes confused with the more popular phrase ‘Bredrins’, but in fact is the complete opposite. Whilst ‘Bredrins’ are friends who do the same or like the same things, ‘bredding’ is to be like someone, but in a more malicious way. Like ripping off their fashion sense or buying the same car to look like them. ‘Bredding’ is for fakers who only look grime but don’t live grime.

Creps (n) – “Brand new creps, next on my stop” – Foreign Beggars

Creps are simply a flash pair of trainers; but shoes are more than just an accessory in the world of grime. Whilst all MCs and rappers will walk around in tracksuits and plain t-shirts, the creps point out the true worth of the individual. Basically, bad creps, bad creds.

Reh Teh Teh (n) “Reh Teh Teh, yeah?” – Sway

Grime rappers love to dismiss their fellow artists, and the saying ‘Reh Teh Teh’ seems to have become the new go-to phrase. Basically meaning etc. etc., it is also supposed to have the sound of a machine gun in it. Making it a more confrontational way of the classic opening and closing of your hand to imply someone talks too much.

So there we have it. Ten phrases you are likely to come across in grime tracks. They should probably make it easier to follow what the artists are saying, but be careful not to use these in normal conversation, as there is a chance that you will end up being dubbed a wasteman.

Wasteman (n) “Such a wasteman” – Literally everyone

A prick, dickhead, moron, knobber, bellend, reh teh teh.
