Great song and performance, the kind you just instantly like the first time you hear it.
 
By the 4th or 5th time, you realize you should hear it sparingly else you'll get sick of it - quick

Consider watching less TV,mainstream radio and try to sit next to the stream, just close enough to sometimes dive into. Maybe this solves your problem.

I must get one of his CDs soon...

Those of a certain age (cough!) will remember the old skool rag and bone men portrayed in the famous bathetic sitcom Steptoe and Son:

Just a note on the fact you referred to this as British hip-hop: There's a lot of great British hip-hop around, but this isn't it in my opinion. He's clearly effecting an American accent which, as far as I'm concerned, makes it a British dude making hip-hop, rather than British hip-hop. For examples of great hip-hop from this side of the pond (as opposed to Grime, which is something a bit different I'd say, but still worth looking at) check out Foreign Beggars, Akala, and Children of the Damned.

 
There is a British artist called Tokio Myers...you may want to listen to his version of this song on YouTube he actually combines interstellar and human together and creates one of the most beautiful pieces of music you’ve ever heard. (Tokio Myers-Human)

I'd rather hear that tune. It would be interesting if he were to cover it.

I think there should be an amendment to the U.S. Constitution which requires all candidates for public office at any level of government, as a strict condition of eligibility to take office if elected, to quote two lines from this song in every speech and campaign commercial:

"I'm no prophet or Messiah/You should go looking somewhere higher."

Thanks for the British hip-hop suggestions!  My original take on this track was without knowing he was British, hence the "Texas" sound (which BillG emphasized today playing ZZ Top's La Grange before this one) - and maybe we'll get to hear more of the Brit-Hop you mentioned someday.  LONG LIVE RP!!

Overplay on mainstream radio (at least here where I live) is killing this song for me. It comes on, I shut it off.
