Rodney P
Since his days in the seminal UK hip hop group London Posse, Rodney P has been widely regarded as the Godfather of British Hip Hop. Inspiring a whole generation of British emcees and producers by being the first to rap in his authentic London accent, he produced a homegrown hip hop/ reggae vibe that is distinctly rooted in the UK.

Skitz is a British DJ and music producer. He has compiled a number of British hip hop and other highly regarded hip hop compilations. Along with Rodney P, he produced the first ever track to be played on BBC 1Xtra when the station launched in 2002, and was hailed as a ‘hip hop star.’

Skinny Man
Moving as a kid to Finsbury Park, North London, Skinny Man suddenly found a melting pot of cultures on his doorstep and immersed himself in the musical culture of reggae and dancehall. Thanks to his distinctive voice, Skinny progressed swiftly through open mic battles and consistently won titles around
