Professor Green - I Need You Tonight (Video)

Professor Green has gone from the cream of the crop on the UK’s battle circuit to the type to get airtime on Radio 1, all in a relatively short space of time. Mind you, his move towards a wider, less hip hop-oriented audience was on the cards ever since he signed to Skinner’s now defunct The Beats imprint. Now picked up by Virgin, it looks like he’s taking his place on a commercial stage with this INXS-sampling pop song.

UK hip hop permeates the mainstream even further.
