  • UK Hip Hop

    Brass Monkey posting the hilarious Put a Donk on it (for the upteenth time - always brings a smile to my face) made me think about UK rap
    I pretty much come in and out here:



    And here:



    Which are obviously from a LONG time ago

    Anyone recommend some good UK stuff that isn't 20 years (or more) old?

    I really like Trim. He's a grime guy who used to be in Roll Deep. Not kept up with his later stuff but this is his last single.

      I really like The Bug as well - he's a producer, formerly in Techno Animal and various other heavy groups, who kinda crossed over into dub, inspired by dubstep etc. Occupies a pretty unique place and works with some interesting MCs. My fave is Warrior Queen - see below. It's more grime or dancehall than UK hip hop but who really cares at this juncture. You can stream his last album here.

      Fuck! Just realised this is 7 years old! Probably my favourite thing by him though.

                      Wow
                      I'm not sure what I expected but the quality of the tracks you guys have posted is incredibly high
                      I'm particularly liking the very British takes on an American idiom
                      So far Trim, Aspects, Chalk and Krispy 3 are standing out
                      MORE please
