New Fusion, New wave: 6 Toppatop UK Rap, Bashment & Afrobeats Amalgamations

The army of UK Rappers bringin’ a Bashment/Afrobeats nuisance to their array of releases this year; largely since the Bashment and Afrobeats wave of influence on UK Rap in the early part of this decade – outlined in the BNTL features ‘Return of the Rudeboy’s’ & ‘Bashment Afrobeats & London’s Thriving Hoodstars’ I slapped together in ’14 and ’15 – seems to be pickin’ up some pace.

Needless to say there’s been a whole lot more music of the UK “Afrohop” persuasion lately. From the Trap sounds of LD & Baby R’s track ‘Anything You Want’ to the RnBesk sensual sounds of ‘Lottoboyzz – Hitlist Remix’ featuring the UK Rap-Bashment OG Sneakbo; and all of which sound British; sound like Rap; all encompass Bashment & Afrobeats nuisances in varying degrees giving them them their distinct appeal and varied range of styles and sounds in this buregeoning realm of “Urban Music”.
