The first singles by slowthai were raw bursts of energy, blending grime and drill with a punk attitude, and delivering scathing lyrics addressing the struggles of British youth. His debut album far surpasses the promise of those early tracks, tackling similar topics but with a much sharper focus. The direct, concise album's songs reflect the state of Brexit-era England, particularly the issues faced by those living in poverty, such as broken homes, drug addiction, and the widening wage gap. The MC openly mocks Queen Elizabeth at the end of the title track, which also contains a jarring, angular grime beat and a reference to Dizzee Rascal's game-changing debut, Boy in Da Corner. The album's intense, sometimes traumatic lyrics are spiked with an acerbic sense of humor, as well as a surprising vulnerability, particularly on songs like "Peace of Mind" and "Northampton's Child," where slowthai thanks his mother for raising him, especially after his father left when he was three. Skepta guests on one of the album's harshest moments, the drill track "Inglorious," and slowthai's voice raises in desperation on similarly aggressive tracks such as "Grow Up" and "Missing." The album's production darts from skittish electro-punk (the Mura Masa-assisted "Doorman") to sparkling downtempo ("Gorgeous") to lush garage with acoustic guitars ("Toaster"), each fitting a different facet of the MC's personality. Fresh and exhilarating, Nothing Great About Britain firmly establishes slowthai as one of U.K. rap's most relevant artists.

Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.

Australian Rap: Artists that Shaped the Scene

One thing is clear: a new generation of Australian artists is appropriating rap in their own way, injecting a great dose of African music and deep sounds. But since its emergence in the late 1980s, local rap has always stood out from its American big brother. Often brilliantly.
