After the candid interview I did for Hyponik with Steve (AKA Oneman) – which will available soon – we got on to the subject of UK Rap.
Now, ofcourse man like 67 who’re top doggin’ it right now, and ‘London Possee’ who were British Hip Hop pioneers of the nineties were talking points; but in the process of choppin’ it up about Underground UK Rap Steve played a couple tracks; one of which was from a virtually unknown artists by the name of TBAGZ who also happened to be a local Streatham boy and a good friend of his which catalysed this post. I thought it was time to shed some light and hail up a some underground UK Rap music with noteworthy integrity – some of which – by musicians a lot of geeza’s you may not be familiar with – but all of which have been validated and selected by Rinse FM veteran and toppatop DJ Oneman.
