Best UK Hip Hop Act Nominees

whaaaat.....why do they have this category at these awards?!? Nobody cares!

None of the stars there (apart from Estelle) will know who these guys are.

I can just see 50, T.I, Jigga and Snoop doing the rolex sweep down the red carpet.......

It does'nt matter if the stars know them or not, what matters most is the exposure they get w/ the viewers.

But I agree, on the strength of the Black Boys single you would think BET would include Bashy.

Nonetheless I put mut vote behind Wiley.

Estelle should of been nominated surely? She is from a hip-hop background and has achieved the most this year by far. This award is rightfully hers. End of.

Dizzy Diz to win.

OIIIIII NAAAAAAA WHERES BASHY?

Dizzee to win I suppose. But I'm supporting Giggs.

I don't think the US audience pays much attention to UK 'urban' artists unless they are attached to a US megastar e.g Leona Lewis and Simon Cowell, Estelle and Kanye West.

Didn't Sway win the award back in 2006? It'd be interesting to hear from him if it has impacted his career in anyway.

Ryan Giggs All Day!!!!

@ Brazen - I agree with you regarding the US audiences stance on UK urban acts but I think to say that Leona is seen as an urban act in the US is more than stretching the point; she's a pop act plain and simple. Keyshia Cole is seen as "urban", as is some-one like Fantasia, it's only in the UK the she's seen in that light.

Generally speaking, the response I normally get from Americans regarding UK hiphop acts is "I can't understand what they say!", however some of the "cooler" cats I've met are really digging MIA for some unfathomable reason...

Only Giggs is Hip hop on that list. Shows total ignorance of BET

SClear said...

Ghetto on the strength of 'Freedom of Speech'. One of the best and most coherent UK hip hop albums ever.

I was waiting for someone to pull me up on that!!!! I was using the term 'urban' loosely, I don't even like using that bloody word lol

I am a fan of M.I.A and proud!

Pop Lock and Drop said...

But its true though. I think people do see some artists as "urban" simply for the fact that they are black. I know it may be deemed as controversial, but if you ask a middle aged daily mail reader if they see Estelle as a pop or urban artist, 9 times out of 10 it will be the latter.

Bit of a shame that akala, kano and k-lash aren't getting any recognition overseas. This is still one of the best freestyles ive ever seen

Thb, all of those acts but one openly admits to making grime.

Only one there that reps uk HIP HOP is Giggs.

Giggs for the epic win.

Mistry said...

They finally got it right and actually put some credible people that is a decent representation of what UK Hop hop, Grime (what u call you it?) talent is made of

giggs had the door closed on him with previous mixtapes and now he does one tune with a catch lyric and you all jumping on his dick.... or is it his charlie??
