In 2016, the state of the UK rap and grime scene has never felt healthier than right now. That was reflected in our mad Best Breakthrough category this year.
Artists and MC’s who have carved their own lane and built a dedicated fan base little the list with star potential, as 67, WSTRN, Avelino and plenty of others all made the list of nominees.
It’s Ladbroke Grove MC AJ Tracey who took home the Rated Award last night though. He’s released a handful of sick projects and singles to date, and continues to smash shows at home and abroad, making for a well deserved victory here.
