I see you fam... although both albums doesn't have that real Grime "sound", would you agree? But they're both great albums... Skepta is darker, has more bangers, more gangsta type of sound but also got some american influences! I didn't even know that Kano dropped a new album, I just saw that when I wanted to buy "Konnichiwa" and took that one too. Now it's my favorite album right now. It has a few bangers but also some positive vibes and some stories... it's more versatile but everything matches. Would even say his best album by now.

You are from the UK right? Do you have any recommendations on some good UK Rap or Grime albums? I got a few at home but surely missed out on some gems.

Maybe not so much albums but more so artists.. My favourite artists right now in that scene are Stormzy and also Chip.. For me they are doing it big and lyrically what I look for in artists..
Some of my favourite tracks by them are:

Hear Dis | Chip and Stormzy

Standard | Stormzy

Honourable mention:

Man Don't Care | JME feat Giggs

Yeah, I know about "Man Don't Care"... that was my favorite track from the latest JME album, great song!

I got one album from Chip back when he called himself Chipmunk (Transition) - that one was very pop influenced with hooks from Keri Hilson, Chris Brown, Trey Songz etc. but it was okay! For some time he was signed to T.I.'s label Grand Hustle I guess... but he didn't drop an album, just one or two mixtapes. Haven't heard anything from him in a while.

I heard a few tracks by Stormzy before, he's great - very powerful. I like that "Standard" track a lot! "Scary" is another dope tune from him. I hope he'll be dropping an album soon... one of the best UK artists right now in my opinion!

Yeah Chip went pop for a while but now he is fully back into Grime.  I'm definitely looking forward to that album from Stormzy.  He's actually announced that its dropping this summer!

i just checked out chance the rapper's album today and i gotta say it's probably one of the realest hip hop albums released in quite awhile, reminds me of wyclef's carnival, krs i got next, kanye college dropout, and will's willenium, real soulful vibe, even features the gospel legend kirk franklin!

 

i listened to beastie boys licensed to ill earlier today in homage to their original member that passed away last week:

 

i also listened to the og emcee of brooklyn big daddy kane's long live the kane album today as well:
