Name one good UK Hip-Hop Album or even artist. I'm from the UK and I'm seriously struggling here.
Pic not related.
How could you fuck up that bad
Devlin's a pretty good rapper but he doesn't make very good music.
Honestly Brits have like the worst rapping accent possible
These guys are the best of UK from my experience
Jehst - The Return of the Drifter is amazing
Obviously Dizz - BIDC
Foreign Beggars - Asylum Speakers or Stray Point Agenda
Wiley - Treddin' on Thin Ice
Also, Tommy Evans - The Turbulent Times Of… (if you can find it)
+ Unusual Suspects - Unusuwol is good if you don't take it seriously and get over the edginess
You could always check out Don't Flop on YT, if you like the rapper check if they've made a mixtape
>ever giving a shit about rap or hiphop
Rap/Hiphop sells 10 time less than rock and pop in the UK. Similar all over europe.
No one gives a shit outside the US.
I've never had a taste for this guy's output. His rapping never really clicked with me; always sounded too much like he was just talking.
Might be because I'm a working class Brit myself and I'm used to that kind of accent in everyday life, though.
Listen to the whole album, the guy is underrated as fuck
People like >>55358940 believe hip hop and rap has to be confined to the US to creditable - which is ridiculous. i like to think I know grime and UK hip hop pretty well but even I know that there's hundreds of gems like Jehst out there that I haven't found yet
actual serious answer coming through.
that said, uk hip hop has a cultural problem with hip hop, the white accent just doesn't sound good. Only actually top tier grime Mc's are black etc.
>always sounded too much like he was just talking
that's actually the appeal of the streets. i wouldn't consider them rap in a traditional sense though, but i'm also not that anon.
