Sticks 'N' Stones

Album: Sticks and Stones (2009)
Charted: 15
  • This is the lead track from British hip-hop artist Jamie T's EP Sticks and Stones, his first release since 2007's Panic Prevention album.
  • Jamie T told Q magazine: "I think it sounds a bit like The Police. It's about travelling on the train and reminiscing about things I've seen on the line, like running away from gangs down side alleys."
  • Jamie T's fast delivery on his songs makes mishearing inevitable. He told The Sunday Times August 30, 2009, that on this song, "everyone thinks the chorus goes, 'Running with believers/Got no time for beaver.' Can I just say it's actually, 'No time for fever.' Someone I know went, 'Oh, man, you've ruined the song for me.'"
