they ain't rappin' like pro

What’s with all the amazing hip-hop talents coming out of the UK?? My first experience with UK rap came from The Streets. Shortly after, I got into Dizzee Rascal, Kano, and Wiley. Then last year, I started listening to the unbelievable lyricist, Plan B. My latest discovery in UK hip-hop is a MC from East London who goes by the stage name, Professor Green. So far (from what I could gathered), Professor Green has only released a mixtape and a single... and the single track, "Before I Die" is actually included in the mixtape. Despite limited studio materials, Professor Green is without a doubt, a very promising new artist. For one, the mixtape, Lecture #1, features some incredible rhymes and flows; and not to mention, Professor Green has the same witty, cocky attitude that made Eminem a key player in North America hip-hop. Oh, and did you know, Professor Green is signed to Mike Skinner’s label, The Beats... now, that's pretty impressive!
