D Double E Tells You Just How He Likes It in a New Live Video
Watch the grime OG perform his single "How I Like It", as part of our Greatest UK MCs of All Time series.
Since the discovery of fire enabled man and woman to cook meat over an open flame, we've never been able to settle one simple question: rare or well-done? The idea of a bloodied steak makes some of us want to gag; meanwhile, Anthony Bourdain lays out the argument for never ordering a well-done cut of steak in a restaurant. His pro-tip: you'll be served old and dry meat disguised by the amount of time it's spent on the griddle – only a prime cut could leave the kitchen medium-rare or rare, and "the philistine who orders his food well-done is not likely to notice the difference between food and flotsam".
All of this brings us to grime MC D Double E. He featured in our top 10 of the Greatest UK MCs of All Time a few weeks ago and early on in new single "How I Like It" lets us all know that "when I'm eating steak, well-done's how I like it / Blood coming out? Nah, that's not how I like it" – surely a helpful reference for any wait staff in restaurants he'll go on to frequent. Watch him rap about steak, car washes and more, in a live performance he gave for us at YouTube's London studios – and keep an eye out for others by the new breed of UK MCs. They're coming soon.
