3. Footsie - Bag Of Grease (Produced by Darq E Freaker) 
My third choice this month comes from Footsie - who along with D Double E makes up east London grime outfit, Newham Generals. Footsie's new single, Bag Of Grease, is produced by one of the most forward-thinking grime beat-makers out there right now, Darq E Freaker - who has made something quite dark and haunted for the legendary MC to flow over. For as long as I've known Footsie's music, he's always been about his grime. His hunger for the music still comes across in every track that he releases, which is great to see considering that he's been making grime for SO many years! Cop this track when it's released on May 29.

2. Sam Kay - Oh Gosh

My second pick this month comes from Sam Kay, who I placed on the top spot back in June 2011 with his track, Back To My Old Ways. On Oh Gosh, which comes from his forthcoming 'Every Day I Win' EP, Sam raps about not caring about what the naysayers have to say about your life or daily grind, and to just keep on doing what you feel is right for you. This tune stood out for me because it's really relatable to my situation right now. Sometimes you have to just have to go with what you feel is right, regardless of what others think. Big up Yellow on the production front too. Can't beat a tune with a deep message that you can also have a little ol' skank along to.

1. Stinkahbell & Psy:am Feat. P Money, Little Dee & Blacks - 'Hot Poo' 

My number one track this month comes from Stinkahbell, Psy:am, P Money, Little Dee and Blacks with Hot Poo. Nice track title, right? Each MC rides the dubstep beat with ease, further confirming that grime and dubstep can work really perfectly together if done in the correct way. A solid banger for the clubs. The track is coming out on Plastician's Terror Rythhm label on May 28.

This is Joseph 'JP' Patterson's last entry for BBC Introducing, but be sure to keep following him on Twitter for all the latest music news.
