West London native and self-proclaimed GOAT AJ Tracey has solidified his place as one of London’s most loved and most active young rappers. Fresh off the back of a deluxe version release of his 2019 self-titled album, we caught up with the UK’s biggest Ksubi lover to hear who’s on his list of London MCs right now.

For more from AJ Tracey, follow him here and check his latest video for ‘Floss’ feat. Not3s and MoStack below.

01. Lancey Foux

[He’s] from East London and [is] a guy who is very fashion forward. He focuses on his own style and never tries to be like any other artist.

02. Master Peace

Great sound, [it] encapsulates the British sonic whilst showcasing black culture and youthful energy.

03. Big Zuu

One of the most energetic performers I’ve ever seen. He talks a lot about pressing issues and is a very honest and clean hearted artist.

04. Yung Fume

Even from a young age, he’s one of the pioneers of wavy autotune music in the UK. He has strong ties to the US and is good at pouring his heart out via the street sound.

05. D7

Halfway between a grime mc and a traditional rapper, an arsenal of flows and cadences galore. Uses a lot of witty punchlines and his tone of voice is always topic appropriate. [Editor’s note: Peep AJ in the background around 1:25]
