Grime and UK rap artists were among the first to come together to raise money for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in London. 

Fundraising events were organised in the aftermath of the tragedy. 

Also, West London-based MC Big Zuu has dropped a powerful music video which sums up the social inequality and the tragedy of what happened. 

Shot by two young directors, Kirx & Kaylum, “Grenfell Tower Tribute” aims at paying tribute “to the people who have lost everything — their possessions, their homes, their families.”

It shows a collation of footage around the site along with heartening scenes of the community rallying around to help each other. In the words of the authors, it’s a “touching documentation of the amount of love our community has for one another.”

“Nothing can bring back what was lost but we can honour them in our memories and our art.”

GRM Daily urban music website, which collaborated in the video shooting, has set up a JustGiving page to help victims of the fire.
