P Diddy Talks About The UK Hip-Hop Scene
The rap mogul is loving us at the moment...
Rap mogul P Diddy has said in a recent interview that he believes UK hip-hop is about to break into the American charts.
He told BBC News: "I've always been abreast and respected the UK hip-hop scene and I look forward to great things. I think in the past maybe some of the UK hip-hop artists weren't as authentic to where they come from. It's all right to be from the UK and it's all right to talk about what you want to talk about and not try to sound or be like somebody from the US."
“There is now a self-pride in UK hip-hop. That's the starting point. Hip-hop respects something that's authentic. Just like the way in the US it took time for the south and the west coast to break, it's the same thing and I just think that UK hip-hop is on the verge of breaking."
