Best UK Rapper of AlL TiME?
Traininvain
Skinnyman dropped one of the best UK rap albums (council estate of mind).
+3
Katy
I’ve lit a few spliffs with Alex just b4 he blew up he’s a total gentleman :)

Got me thinking of up your speed with sway or hold on (hold tight to what you own) Kit Kat rappers lol jokers

I’ve been to some epic nights and met some of these guys.. to me they are legends ❤️
+2
Mhokurtz
Yeah he really is a nice guy isn't he. Very down to earth and incredibly intelligent. Was gutted that he never blew up tbh.
+2
Dorsoda4300
Agreed. One of the best ever.

kam420
Damn, forgot about this.. will be on that tomorrow!
ShedSmoker
I’m old so I’d argue Kalashnekoff, Fallacy or pretty much half of the old mud fam (skinny, Chester), got to give a mention for doc brown though, new album is nice, still going

Fucking love a bit of k-lash tho... it’s murda, black rose etc yeah... gonna bang that parrowdice album like NOW lol
+6
TK42
Yeh that K-lash album was a banger, actually gave it another listen not long ago and it’s still a fucking banger. I’d say any from K-lash, Kano, Taskforce and Jehst.
+4
LEGACYUKDANK
shed you know the deal lol! but there is no way we can put this down to ONE best uk rapper, Klash & terra firma... MUD fam, That arab uk guy from deal real days cant remember his name but TOP lyricist, Too many to mention TBH,

Shit even used to bump pound sterling and RSG. So much styles in the UK rap scene over the last 15 years its hard to say whos the number 1!
+4
muttley240
I love doc Brown's music, but the guy's an arsehole

K-lash though, man he can rap!! Even the young'uns love his stuff too
+2
afc89green
He had some absolutely bangers tbf citizen Smith vol 2 no more said
+2
Biggdave
That parrowdice album is absolutely timeless never get bored of listening to it, pound sterling use to like some of his stuff from back in the day? Can you remember channel u, that was on sky, had all the upcoming young english talent, use to watch religiously, use to have some mad guys on there!!!!
+1
DougalMcGuire
Great shout there - were you also a Yungun fan? He’s back with new stuff under ‘Essa’ - still awesome! Also used to bang Universal Soldiers every single day - going to put it on now in fact, happy Friday all!
+4
ShedSmoker
Yungun! Yeah man, he had a phat album with Mr Thing called GMB (grown man business) and he got a song on there called 'peter pan syndrome' which actually makes my heart bleed.... that dude is an entertainment lawyer now!
+4
DougalMcGuire
Top album!! Yeah man that’s crazy isn’t it!! Wiccaman theory by Chester P used to get me like that! The ten pound bag mixtapes were brilliant too. Loving this thread, now reminded me of how much I love Dabbla and LDZ, having a great day :D
+2
ShedSmoker
Ten pound baaaaagggg...oh my days... the problem with smoking so much weed is I forget too much music lol...damn, louis slipperz on the mix...some of the beats of those were mind-wreckingly phat...man, I got to dig those out...yeah, loving this thread too man, nice to know I'm not the only one still rocking out Taskforce and Skinnyman and shit...oh shit...Sway...remember that cat? He did the tune over the car racing tune..ah shit...memory lol...I know the one, think it was called 'up your speed', so many bangers lost to the pit of my weeded memory lol...
+4
DougalMcGuire
Hahaha mate 100% the same!! Weeded memory sucks!! Yeah I’d completely forgotten about Sway! Flo’ Fashion was an absolute banger as well!!

Anything off that album was fantastic.

Fliptrix, Chester P, Akala, Lowkey and skinny man... Can't really claim one is better than the other, they have all reached maxed skill in their unique styles
+2
Mhokurtz
Glad to see someone get fliptrix in there. Saw him and skinny man live at subterranea just before lockdiwn and its unreal how much stage presence fliptrix has...and he's a fucking giant lol
cnrb
Jehst..lyrically stunning and his delivery unrivalled!

Jamie Thompson 69691
OLDsKoOl... Return of the drifter was an epic album.. still gets alot of play in my dojo lol! How could we forget Jehst!

You like braintax too?

zemaone
Agree with pretty much all of the below suggestions.

Recently found this banger by Kano, D double E and Ghetts.... Such a tune, such great energy... Real uk OG's. Kano's got the longevity

... enjoy ...
+1
Mhokurtz
Kano is tremendous live too. And so is d double e....ghetts is passable but compared to the other 2 he falls short in my eyes. I've seen all 3 of them perform multiple times

Akala for the win. Definitely NOT Skinnyman... Although I did like Council Estate of Mind.
muttley240
As much as I properly love late 90s/early 200s UKHH, I have to say that Dabbla is right up there for me.

LDZ, Dead Players, his stuff on HF, and his solo albums on Potent Funk, he's kept it fresh, pushed hard and spits like nobody else. His wordplay is incredible.
Mhokurtz
Dabbla isassivley slept on. Psychoville is a masterpiece

JH95
Kano

Traininvain
Def a personal favourite. Don’t think he’s made an average album and seen him live a couple times and never disappointed.

Chester P in my opinion. I'll never sell my early TaskForce vinyl
zemaone
Love a bit of Chester and early Task Force... Great shout!
kam420
Hmmmm, Good question man, Jehst is up there for me.. But, with the new school vibes of like Ocean Wisdom, Verb-T. I’m not sure anymore :)
DougalMcGuire
Top reply that! Early Jehst is hard to beat in my book! Chester P also up there - more recently loving Lee Scott (by no means would class him as UKs greatest but he’s a personal fav of mine :)
+4
muttley240
Chester P is also a bloody lovely bloke to boot. A carer these days and seems.to have his head properly screwed on
ShedSmoker
Chester P for mayor!!

Ches is a fucking dude...he dropped one of the hottest 'fire in the street' freestyles ever...dude is deep as fuck, massive respect for him.

Bullet from a guuuuuuunnnnn!!! Derek B was the fucking man, he must have been one of my first UK hip hop heroes! Ahhh, this brings back memories..who remembers Normski?! Cannot for the life of me remember the show he had on tv for a while but I fucking loved it...

Was it called Def 2 on BBC 2?

ShedSmoker
Ooooh, that rings a bell...really can't pull it out of my brain, Normski was the presenter and it was literally the only thing on tv that had any flavour at all, was late on a Friday night iirc

Silver Bullet, hands down is the best UK rapper (really showing my age). 20 Seconds was good but 'Bring forth the Guillotine' is a classic.

Some greats already mentioned! but Dizzie rascal has to be in there for me! . Stefflon don , Jaykae and Bugzy Malone have some tunes too. Could be cheating but 21 savage as well I’m sure I saw he was from Newham originally?
+2
Biggdave
I think he is you know!!! Who was the the other mc how was orginally in the newham generals, cant remember his name to stoned!!! Haha, ive even seen him live aswell at show at london dungeons, my mate won vip ticketsto see them and dizzee and jammer!!! Only 200 people whata fucking night that was!!! Still cant remeber his name!!! Haha

Dorsoda4300
I'm younger than some on this thread so don't know too many old school UK rappers. Mainly like old American rappers/mcs from the 90s, but would also give a vote to skinny man. Council Estate of mind is one my favourite albums of all time and its criminal he's not better known (In the mainstream).

If we're talking about modern day.. casisdead is currently the best in the scene/UK in my opinion, bar none. Can't wait for his new album to drop.
+3

It’s gotta be Skepta or Dizzee man!

Nothing touches Konichiwa, Boy in da corner or Showtime.. nothing!

Showing my age ( and probably giving away that I’m more of a guitar guy ) but The Streets first album is awesome
+3
SilentHero
I think for me it’s Potter Payper if you want that real rap but grime wise I’m going to say Ghetts.
+2
LJ130
No one shuts down a race like d double,
But ghetts is definitely the best lyricist in grime
Lmoak
JME all day. Showing my age now.
Rating Ocean Wisdom atm tho
Far too many good ones to list on here tho.

JME is good but I think Skepta takes it for me man

Double S rap dis tho <<<<

So many to choose from such as Ghetto but I'm gonna have to go for his old mate Kano. Special place in my heart for that donny.

kanot sorry, but i'm open to you convincing me otherwise

hoqwer
Yeah technically Kano is a master... but never liked his style
+1
afc89green
I get what you mean I'm mainly on about his first shit after that he got annoying as fuck when he switched his style tbh lol
+1
hoqwer
It’s all a bit mid 2000s Roll Deep etc. Good proving grounds for the future, some good MCs came out of it, but in itself it’s pretty shit. I mean compare that to some Wu Tang shit, which I guess would be the New York streets equivalent 15 years earlier... doesn’t even compare.
+2
Lord Terpshire
f you're talking the hardest..

ChronicNinj
Not the most original post, but if what I read on the internet it true, then I would say MF DOOM, (apparently born in London).
+2
NewWormOrder
All completely subjective but

Kano is my all-time favourite.

Boy in da corner was a groundbreaking album, and has stood the test of time (still sounds amazing to this day) so Dizzee has to have a place on the UK rap Mount Rushmore.

Also high ratings and much love for Klashnekoff, JME, Sway, Devlin, and Roots Manuva.

I know he doesn’t rap anymore, but Plan B in his prime was exceptional. The Paint it Blacker Mixtape is one of my all time favourites

Dutty goodz is the king for me, chester p, lowkey,akala are also faves, and ocean wisdom for technicality, not so keen on his content but he's got very diverse flows and spot-on delivery.
