How could you fuck up that bad
>>55358595
Dizzee Rascal
Devlin's a pretty good rapper but he doesn't make very good music.

Honestly Brits have like the worst rapping accent possible
>>55358622
These guys are the best of UK from my experience
>>
>>55358653
Oh ya and these guys, even tho their last LP was almost not even hip hop. They're way too poppy for me
>>
>>55358595
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)

Because he's good

>>55358776
+ 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

MF DOOM

>ever giving a shit about rap or hiphop

AHAHAHAHAHHA

Rap/Hiphop sells 10 time less than rock and pop in the UK. Similar all over europe.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-26139327

No one gives a shit outside the US.
>>
>>55358595
Young Fathers. Their latest record was shit but one track off of it Sirens is GOAT
>>
>>55358622
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.

>>55358595
Plan B

So good

Germany is #2 in the world for hip-hop consumption IIRC

>tfw this guy was raised in my home town
Holy shit, why haven't I heard of him before? He's great?
>>
>>55358940
wow from that point of view you'd think /mu/ regards pop sales music as relevant

the question was about good uk hip hop artists, not pop music blud
>>
>this thread

>no Roots Manuva

:(
>>
>>55359134
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
>>
>>55359314
I will, thanks for introducing him to me, anon.
>>
>>55358595
hip hop is strictly american talent
even MF DOOM learned his craft in nyc
>>
hip hop's American tho. its mainly grime here
>>
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.
>>
As if nobody has mentioned DJ Smile yet, this is a must hear, met this guy and he's exactly as you'd expect.

Um, Young Fathers

>>55360273
Another one from my hometown (Huddersfield).

I've got a friend who's met him. Said he was a bit of a cunt, apparently. She didn't know who he is and he got pissy.
>>
>>55360368
Yeah I went to uni in Huddersfield, he's basically a drunk tramp, also a proper knob.
>>
>>55358982
>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.
>>
>>55360242
>>55358622
>>55358776
>>55360283
>>55360327
all acceptable answers

now, if you were to ask if we could name one good Australian hip hop album or artist we would have had no chance
>>
>>55360450
Yeah, I think if I go in listening to it more as spoken word with hip-hop production, I'll dig it more.

Also, Dry Your Eyes does make my heart hurt a bit.
>>
every time i see this photo of earl i want to put my knee on his neck, suffocate him and continuously punch him in his face.
