Happy Music Monday! There was a time when rap was new. And, in that time, for some reason, there were a whole bunch of artists who started using a British accent. So today, in their honor, we're doin' a Music Monday about rapping with a British accent. WARNING: They won't all be Americans.
Dana Dane is technically the first rapper to use an "English" accent while rapping. His influence spread wildly, and everyone in my school was staggered that a black guy could also talk British. Yes, that WAS incredibly racist of us, thanks for noticing! At least we kinda grew out of that when we got a little older. This particular song is so beloved that Snoop Dogg recorded his own version as a tribute! Not so bad, Dana.
But that's not all! There's more to come after the jump. Mate.
