List of the Top British Rappers
UK rappers are without doubt in one of Europe’s top rap scenes and the oldest and most historic hip hop scene within the entire continent. Dating back to the early 1980s, the music scene of British rappers has been growing decade by decade into becoming the world’s most respected hip hop markets outside of the U.S.
With the United Kingdom’s long-standing relationship with the United States, it is only right that British rappers were the first to appear in Europe, or even the world outside of the U.S., among the genre of hip hop.
UK rappers from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, like Derek B, Silver Bullet, the female group Cookie Crew, London Posse, Demon Boyz, Hijack, Overlord X or the Criminal Minds, as well a handful of DJs and executives behind the scenes like DJ Froggy and Simon Harris, all helped solidify the British rap scene and built a foundation for hip hop music in the U.K.
As hip hop in the United States evolved over time, UK rappers and the British hip hop scene followed right behind. Generation after generation, hip hop artists in the U.K. went from the B-Boy era to the Gangster Rap era to today’s Trap and Drill Rap era, all while British rappers pioneered rap and hip hop music in Europe.
When you have a legend as lyrically crafty as Stormzy, an untouchable artist like Dave, an artist showcasing longevity through talent and consistency like Bugzy Malone, the quick rise of the ultra talented Tion Wayne, one of the most swagged out artist in Europe like AJ Tracey, an artist as live and as creative as Aitch, the UK’s top Drill rapper of Russ Millions, the versatility and creativeness that is unmatched in ArrDee, or some of the world’s top female rappers then it is easily to see why the UK rap scene is one of the world’s leaders and has one of Europe’s largest lineups of hip hop artists with a much larger global reach than any other European country.
