In Dancehall, Grime, Hip Hop by Nick Russell

2017 has been a ground breaking year for hip hop and grime in the UK and US. With a vast amount of ground covered both in terms of social progress (think Logic’s hit ‘1-800-273-8255’), and how several artists have become household names. So without any further explanation, here’s a run down of our favourite albums of 2017 and a handful of our favourite singles too. Feel free to vent or agree with us on twitter @blatantlyblunt.
