The British Hip Hop Invasion Broadcast pt.1

I’ve been listening to UK Hip Hop for at least a few years now, and my opinion of it has only gotten better. I’ve been hoping for a breakthrough where some of these artists finally get their well-deserved shine time here in America, but it hasn’t happened so far. Instead of waiting for others to realize the originality, concept and skillz these artists have, I’ve decided to show you some of my personal favorites. This month on shadesradio.com / hiphoplives.net is part 1 of The British Invasion Broadcast. Here you can see and hear a taste of what England has to offer the rap music genre. What I found first, were some emcees dedicated to 90’s style underground music in the form of the collective known as, Split Prophets. For a more contemporary sound we look at the commercial work of Lady Leshurr and Paigey Cakey, two females from Bristol. Then we go to the conscious/political side with Jehst and his special guests. Lastly, we finish up with an informal, live Deejay set from DJXL from Plymouth. If you tired of the promotion of low-skilled, throw-away rap songs you normally get in the U.S., tune into shadesradio.com this month and catch the feature.
