Introducing The Shortlist.
Featuring the hottest MC’s, rappers and artists that you’re going to be hearing a hell of a lot of over the next 12 months and beyond. From rap to grime, R&B to drill, there’s a flavour for everybody on our new album.
Handpicked by us to create some original music, we’ve brought together the UK undergrounds freshest talent into one place, just for you.
We teamed up with DJ Target over on Radio 1Xtra to preview some of the music from the album too. We brought through the artists to shell down and perform their tracks as part of a Team Takeover, which you can view above now.
You can pre-order the album right now on iTunes – which will be released this Friday (April 21st) – before it is released across all streaming platforms.
Make sure you pre-order The Shortlist right here and deep the list of MCs, in order of appearance, below. Shout out to Knucks, Russ and Taze who couldn’t make it to the takeover.
Terra, Young Ty, Micah Million, Dis, Poundz, Hudson East, Berna, A.STAXX, SNE, Ray Niro and DC all make appearances.
You can also listen back to the full show, including an interview with staff members Griff, Saq, Jaik and Patrick, right here on BBC iPlayer.
