Editors’ Notes Grime’s conquest of the mainstream signaled a new generation finding its own compelling voice. Now, UK rap is demonstrating just how diverse and progressive that voice is. Sub-genres spring up almost daily, reflecting the cultures of a new diaspora by cross-pollinating UK club sounds with Afro-Caribbean dance music as well as hip-hop in every form—all decorated by authentic storytelling. From drill to Afroswing to trap, here’s a playlist covering the best homegrown 🔥. We regularly update these tracks, so if you like something, add it to your library.
