Run the Road is a series of compilations released on 679 Recordings and Vice. It is intended to showcase a wide variety of grime artists from the genre such as Dizzee Rascal, Wiley and Kano.

Run the Road's Musical Implications[edit]

Run the Road served as an advertisement to the United States of the various, young, future stars currently performing in the grime scene. Artists such as Lady Sovereign, featured on the track "Cha Ching," despite having some recognition in Britain, still long to gain success in the United States and become an international star.[1] Run the Road features some of the hungriest young stars of the UK and has been described as the "first real showcase of the UK's grime scene."[2]
