    I've avoided UK hip-hop like the plague my whole life but I feel Stormzy needs to be the exception tot eh rule here. Where do I start??

    he's only released one album - g--- Signs & Prayer in 2017, which I thought was alright. Don't know much about UK rap but theres a few albums I'd swear by to get started:

    Skepta - Konnichiwa
    J Hus - Common Sense
    Wiley - Godfather

    Theres been a bunch of big releases this year from AJ Tracey, Skepta, Little Simz, Dave and Slowthai but I havent checked them all out yet

    Ugh, the UK accent when it comes to UK hip-hop just doesn't do it for me. Stormzy may be the only exception here but I might give those a go. Not going to prioritise it though!

    Dizzee Rascal Boy In Da Corna is a classic. Try that one mate.
