    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.

    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

    Original "Great Britain" –

    Scorzayzee – Invisible (Live at Maida Vale Studios)
    He flows like water on this track

    Scorzayzee new track "America" follow up to Great Britain

    Scorzayzee – Crepps

    Scorzayzee – Busy Road

    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)

    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!!***

    Jehst, Scriblah & Wordsmith – Apocalypse When

    Jehst & Task Force feat. Braintax – Cosmic Gypsies

    Jehst – 1979

    Jehst – City Of Industry

    Jehst – Alcoholic Author

    Jehst & Nmonic – BODYCLOCK

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

    Lowkey – Politics (Remix) (ft. Yungun)

    Chester P Vs Dr. Dre – DJ Backroll

    Chester P Spoonerised Minds

    Chester P – That Shiiit

    Task Force – No One Knows

    skinnyman fuck the hook


    I've concentrated on a specific genre here but another great artist:

    Brett Dennen – Ain't No Reason
    & check – There Is So Much More

    Loving the mixtape, nice one.
