London Posse BiographyThe multi-talented DJ Jimmy Green aka Jimbo Jones has written some essential reading for fans of UK Hip Hop. He's done a concise history of the London Posse, or a biography if you like. It's really worth a read and there's a chance you'll learn a few new things:

"London Posse were one of the most influential groups in British hip hop, and one of the first to sound authentically British. Pretty much everyone who MCs now in the UK owes them a debt, from Roots Manuva to Jehst to Wiley to Ghetto to... well, you name your favourite UK rapper, or anyone who raps in his or her own accent about things that are local to them, and it'll be pretty much down to the London Posse's trailblazing series of classic (but sporadic) releases in the 80s and 90s".

You can read the article here on his blog.

Many thanks to Jimbo for crediting this site as the source for a great deal of the information in the article.
