Just wondering if anyone overseas from the UK has ever heard him? He's considered to be a bit of a legend of UK Hip hop. To any uk people on here: What do you think of him?

only really heard him as a guest rapper - most notably on lewis parker's second album which is excellent (but mainly because lewis parker is excellent)

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.

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)

meh.... beats are cool, but theres something slightly naff about his rhymes.... which is strange cause when Jehst raps about the great outdoors and "hoppin' over dry stone walls with a holdall" it's some of his best work, must be his flow and voice, never owned one his records, but I certainly don't complain when other people put them on.

Yeah I agree. Braintax is alright, but his rapping sounds a bit odd. It's not bad he just sounds a bit stupid.

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.

No mention of Phi Life Cypher, you can't mention UK Hiphop without them guys, unfortunately, the commercial grime and so called Urban scene over here fucked UK Hiphop completely, they think Tinchy Stryder is Hiphop.
