Let's see if we can get this rolling!

It's uncommon to see a Danish rapper working within a contemporary rap sound/framework pay as much attention to flow as MJ, who shows off on this track

NON-US RAP

This guy (who is on "Tempo" as well) is more-streams-than-Ed-Sheeran-level big right now. This is his pop move:

Boef, "Habiba"

His collab with Belgian rapper Soufiane Eddyani, "Salam", is much more in-your-face:

Bonus track:

Posted these Dutch guys last year as well: SBMG, "Caribbean":

Worth it for the gorgeous instrumental alone - the instrumental version is on Spotify as well.

one month passes...

The Russian press / 'public intellectual' sphere has apparently been taking a deeper interest in rap recently due to an hour-long (and not particularly watchable) face-off between Oxxxymiron, who is an established and highly acclaimed star, and Slava KPSS, a bratty viral internet rapper. The latter won and is now very much a thing. His new song isn't terrible:

Tatarin by AIGEL is good:

Pharaoh's brand of klaud rep is as popular as ever:

Just popping in here to mention that I really like Pattesutter, and especially this (2016) song:

haha, longneck your appreciation for new wave of Danish rap is a treasure :)

there was a great doc on public Danish tv about Pattesutter - inspired a lot of sympathy for the guy's project
