Jumps in...

Well first off, Jehst has been amongst the most eloquent of Rappers in the UK lately, needs to learn not to off on a tangent sometimes though.

Lets not forget Rodney P, slightly less "intelligent" (i use that term VERY loosely) in his flows. But, he's been doin it for years so big props to him.

Taskforce, without a shadow of doubt, Chester P is my favourite rapper of ALL time, from any country. I just sink in to pretty much every flow he has ever done. Farma as well, now I didn't particularly like him at first, but his style really grows on you and massive respect must be given to an all-round talented guy.

K-lash; superb, nuff said. The one I reckon could take it to the states and kill it.

Skinny; gotta love the fact that he cares fuck all about sales, he's all about the music, and that commands respect from all. He's also a very talented lyricist.(That album got caned)

Philly; never been the hugest fan of him to be honest.

Life; brilliant. One of the tightest in terms of holding his flow, but his constant black power rants get a bit annoying sometimes :S (i'm gonna get dissed for that one aren't i?)

Tony Rotten; can't remember who mentioned him earlier, but YEAH! brilliant live too.

This one I'm amazed hasn't been mentioned... TY; superb flow, excellent content, brilliant live.

Mr Manuva; think most of you know how much I think of him, he's a genius, although, he's not strictly hiphop is he? more like dub-hop (oh yeah baby, more sub-genre's in teh hizouse)

anyways, thats all I can think of atm, I'm srue more will come to me.

btw, in terms of grime mc's, kano owns.

Dizzie is a perfect example of how versatile & open the UK music scence is now. OK his sound is sometimes boardering on garage, but then it flips to grime, & then UK hip hop, & breaks. I really don't know why people cuss him for what he's doing because in all honesty he's leading the way for UK artists to knock US rappers of the block for a while, & who has heard a decent US artist come through for a while?

But off the subject we all forgot Mark B & Blade they've been doing it for a longtime now.
