UK’s Greatest MCs & Rappers

Noisey gave their verdict on the UK’s greatest MC’s of all time, however I feel that the list should’ve been renamed as ‘Greatest UK MC’s & Rappers’.  In the UK, when we think of MC’ing, we associate it with the rave and pirate radio culture (House, Garage, Grime, Dub, DnB etc). Yet the list consisted of names such as MIA, Roots Manuva, and The Streets – who are truley great artists, rhymers and lyricists, but as a ‘Microphone Controller’, that is debatable. Saying that though, I know in the US, they refer the MC’s being more lyrical and authentic to the culture, as opposed to Rappers. Other than that, the list is pretty much on point.
