This Is UK Rap Vol. 1 will be the first in a series of compilations bringing together the hottest rappers on a two disc spectacular full of hard beats, real lyrics and street defining tales. This Is UK Rap Vol 1 features the most respected names on the UK Rap / Hip-hop scene, whose buzz, street credibility and talent are undeniable.
UK Rap is finally at its peak, with acts like Giggs winning BET awards, K Koke being signed to Roc Nation and of course Krept & Konan‘s “4 million views” alongside consistence within the mixtape field; UK Rap is now stronger than ever. Hip-hop in the UK has been overshadowed by many Grime MC’s in the past years, however online views, iTunes charts and general demand have begun to dictate a change.
The CD’s tracklist has been specially compiled by DJ Fira featuring well-known tracks and exclusives from our favourite boys from the block including pioneering names such as Giggs, Blade Brown, Skepta and Ja Ja Soze alongside some of the fresh new talent including Cashtastic, Benjamin AD, Margs, Exo, Sneakbo, Boss Belly and many more.
Both CD’s are far from one dimensional and truly document the growth, development and current talent of the underground scene. The combination of rappers, both upcoming and established provides the listener with a key to the streets. With a free mix by DJ Fira and a number of bonus tracks on the digital release This Is UK Rap Vol 1 is the ONLY UK Rap compilation series you need to buy!
