he's alright. I prefer some of the other talent comin' outta the UK like skinnyman, rodney p, skitz, deckwrecka and lewis parker.

it's all about Jay Glaze and Rod Hutley. dunno if they are still makin tunes, but fuck it. the tracks they put out were rad.

I feel exactly the same..... amazing rhymes & beats on that EP, but the Falling Down was trying far too hard to be left-field and clever and just didn't have that proto-intelligent headnod factor.
His guest spots prior to that were always awesome.... on Lewis Parker, MK mixtapes etc. Did have brilliant lyrics in the early 2000s but I've made a point of ignoring him since the first proper album came out.

roots manuva, thats some good old british hip hop

are any of these people still makin' music? this seems like the 1999 uk rap hit parade, and aside from Lewis Parker and Rodney P's early solo stuff (namely the Tings in Time EP) you've proly picked the worst of a bad bunch......
(sorry to change the subject but) has anyone heard Lewis Parker recent stuff, since moving to New York? Someone played me a couple of tracks and it was dreadful, instead of his old style... stoned wanna jedi canterbury middle class classicist rhymes, he now goes on about "bling bling", Benz's and hoes.... sad but simultaneously funny, it seems like hanging out with a bunch of third generation wu-tangers has taken it's toll. As far as I can recall his beats are still nice though.
I think if you want decent UK stuff now-a-days you have to look at people outside London..... Cappo, A-Bomb, Critic, Hoodz Underground etc. but I don't really keep up with no release rap music cause 99% is generic bollocks.

I honestly believe that Brand New Secondhand is one of the great rap albums..... and in the distant future it'll be held up next to Illmatic, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, Straight outta Compton, Paid In Full, Critical Beatdown etc as one of the groundbreaking releases of this genre.

what are your thoughts on braintax? Birofunk was a good album. i remember listening to it non stop when it came out. panorama was ok too, and his last one was pretty good, but i dont think i'll be listening for ever. not a great rapper, but i like his production. (jehsts guest on riviera hustle is nice)

why? skinnyman used to irritate the hell outta me back in the early days but I really like the production on 'council estate of mind' (which is the exception), and I still think lewis parker, skitz & deckwrecka are some of the better producers from the UK. Rodney P is still my favorite rapper over anyone else, although the stuff he's done with dub pistols is a bit questionable. I dunno. I don't know of any new rappers/producers coming out of the UK recently that have really grabbed my attention.
