Time to educate you man about the UK rap scenes. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ Grime: So Grime is the most well known UK rap scene, some foreigners and even people here may even have the misconception that Grime is just the name for UK rap. It isn t. Grime is a genre of music that originated during the early 2000s in London based from UK garage music and jungle music made during the 90s. It is characterized by fast, electronic sounding beats around 130bpm. Due to such a high BPM, Grime allowed some of the rawest and most ruthless flows in the world to blossom. Lyrics are at the pinnacle of Grime but the style of lyricism is not like Hip Hop. Grime favours wordplay and punchlines however the wordplay is intended to be easy to catch onto otherwise it would be pointless. Grime began blowing up around the early 2010s and is recently starting to go worldwide. Essential Grime artists: Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Skepta, JME, AJ Tracey, Kano, Stormzy, P Money, Novelist, Chip, Bugsy Malone UK Hip Hop: UK Hip Hop is traditionally very different to Grime but in recent years the lines between the two have been blurred as more artists are fusing sounds. UK Hip Hop here has been eclipsed in popularity by Grime however there are still some great MCs. A new wave is emerging that blends Grime, Hip Hop, and Afrobeats. Some of the older artists are more like US Hip Hop artists but some are still out making boom bap type sounds. Essential UK Hip Hop artists: Avelino, Little Simz, Dave, J Hus, Roots Manuva, Loyle Carner, Kojey Radical, Wretch 32, Fliptrix, Akala, Devlin UK Drill: UK Drill only came about recently but it s slowly starting to dominate the UK rap scene. UK Drill obviously was inspired by the Drill scene in Chicago and it had appeal to people in London so they essential adapted the sound to the UK style. This new generation of teenage music consumers are wanting more music to feel violent to so this is why Drill is quickly gaining popularity. Less focus on lyrics. It s essentially UK gangsta trap. Essential UK Drill artists: 67, Harlem Spartans, Section Boyz, 410, Abra Cadabra
