Oi JEP,

Loving your and Corbetts work. Discovered The Corbett Report a few months ago and caught you on NWNW before seeking out Media Monarchy. I like the cut of your musical jib, you play some great tracks, some of which I know but I'll always discover someone/thing new, interesting and relevant.

I put this list together to send you about 2 weeks before the UK riots. It consists of UK Hip Hop artists and the content/lyrics now have even greater relevance!

The artist (white+black) and songs listed should convey the feelings/atmosphere/social mood of these areas of UK society as well highlight the issues, experiences and reactions that have ultimately lead the this outburst.

Scorzayzee
A rapper from Nottingham England - His Nottingham (Midlands) accent really flows well compared to other UK artists. Lyrically deep, and multiple flowing techniques.
Scorzayzee - Great Britain (Live at Maida Vale Studios)
BBC censored version, interesting to compare to the original below

Klashnekoff:
Another deep rapper, focusing on social and political issues. Part of Terra Firma a UK rap collective, well worth a look. Klash has a frustrated and angry but calm/reasoned demure, he seems seriously pissed off about the state of play . He's got got a back catalogue of fantastic tunes but I've tried to include tracks that are 'on topic' so to speak.


Klashnekoff - Raw

Freedom Fighters - (Ram, Kyza, Jehst & Klashnekoff)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYGR_vXWDtQ&feature=related

Jehst:
At times I think Jehst is more of a poet than a rapper, amazing artist. Laid back mellow style, regularly spitting over cool unorthodox instrumentals. He's just dropped a great new album - The Dragon Of An Ordinary Family


Jehst - ENGLAND [Produced By Beat Butcha] **NEVER BEEN MORE RELAVENT!!***

Lowkey
Commonly referred to as the English Immortal Technique, Lowkey is ultra political, not simply planting seeds or posing questions.
