Will the average American rap fan really get what The Streets ‘Original Pirate Material’ is all about? Mike Skinner has his doubts. “I think anything above what I’ve achieved in my own country is a bonus. I don’t think most Americans want to hear anything but Americans, you know what I mean?” he tells Launch.com with his characteristic frankness. “That’s the impression that I get, anyway. Everything has been done in America, so no one in America expects to see anything outside of America. And the less British music that Americans hear, the more weird it sounds to them, y’know? I think America is quite conservative, so I’m not expecting anything.”
