Franklyn Addo Explores Grime's Cultural Impact In New Book 'A Quick Ting On: Grime'


July 26, 2023

Community activist, rapper and journalist Franklyn Addo has written a book detailing the genesis and impact of grime.

Named after the genre it will explore, A Quick Ting On: Grime is set to be released on September 11 as part of Jacaranda Books' ongoing A Quick Ting On series and distributed by Hatchette. Thus far, the series has touched on Black Girl Afro, British Power and Afrobeats, with this next book focusing on a form of music from which so much of UK culture has borrowed.

There are few better qualified to explore the topic than Franklyn Addo—as well as working with some of the country's biggest broadcasters as a journalist, he releases music himself under the moniker of 'Franklyn'. You can pre-order the book here.
