The drum & bass DJ was speaking on Scroobius Pip’s weekly Distraction Pieces podcast, and was talking about how the art world had co-opted graffiti for gain while the art form itself was still saddled with negative perceptions.

"I was a happy boxing promoter until about a week ago, and then -- what do I know about diamonds?"
What a great opening line for a plan-gone-awry crime caper comedy.
The picture is "Snatch," a fast-paced, multi-track corker with a nebulous English sense of humor, and the line is spoken by Turkish (Jason Statham), a small-time London tough who sees an opportunity to be something more but never imagines the trouble it will get him into.
