ANYONE reading this who isn’t aware – the UK has an amazing hip hop scene.
If you think that hip hop and rap begins and ends with the likes of Snoop Doggy Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent et al, drop what you’re doing and listen to some Roots Manuva, some Scroobius Pip, some Sound Of Rum, some Braintax, some Taskforce…
Anyway, the reason I say this is my stumbling upon Great Scott.
The Back To The Future catchphrase-exclaiming crew are an unsigned group from Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, with an old school funky vibe and mic skills and production values which bely their amateur status.
If you want to find out more, there’s a wad of free tracks available at their Facebook page.
