Who are The Streets?

 

The Streets is a legendary British rap project led by multi-instrumentalist Mike Skinner, which merges hip-hop, garage and house music.

 

Rapping about UK culture, The Streets’ first Number 1 single was ‘Dry Your Eyes’ back in 2004.

 

The Streets went on hiatus in 2011, but have since returned with new music.

 

The new Streets mixtape ‘None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive’ arrives next month, and features Bristol’s very own IDLES.

 

Mike and IDLES have been hanging out a lot it seems: Mike has featured in the first episode of IDLES frontman Joe Talbot’s new talk show, Balley TV. Watch:
