Sad times, but I love what I've heard of The D.O.T. so far!

One of my 'favourites'

Not surprised he decided to start something with Rob Harvey. Listening to a song right now, and it's not bad.

I don't quite get the point of "ending" a one-man project. It's not like he's not going to resurrect it the instant he feels like rapping again.

Saw them play their last gig in London, and I just felt he didn't wanna be there, he had had enough of doing the same songs for 10 years. Though he made one classic album and a selection of great tracks, The Streets can go out with dignity, and he is only 27, anything can come next.

It wasn't just a one man project. Skinner just fronted it and wrote a large portion of stuff.

Nope, started with two other guys. Who I believe worked with him all the way to the end.
