The acronym standing for Rhymes Made Easy, the Birmingham, West Midlands, England trio RME comprise rappers Coolski and Scraggs alongside their DJ, DME. Of gastronomic as well as musical dexterity - they all met while chefs at a Cajun restaurant - the group unveiled their debut single in 1994. ‘On A Jazz Tip’, though well-received by critics, was only slightly representative of their more usual hardcore rap fare. It made an easy fit, however, with the vogueish discourse then prevalent between the rap and jazz communities.
