    For some more dope UK hip hop you should definitely check out:

    Grand Central (these guys practically invented the system of getting top
    UK producers teamed up with US rappers--check the brand new Aim single
    "Omen" that features Diamond D on vocals... Home to Aim, Rae & Christian
    -the label bosses-, Tony D and more)

    Hombre (home to Mex, OneCut, Ming, and Aspects)

    Ronin (run by the 23 Skidoo brothers and home to Skitz and
    Deckwrecka--look for his new album in a month)

    Lowlife (home to Taskforce)

    Scenario used to be good too but they don't put much out these day
    (every since their biggest acts got deals here in the States)

    Mad Doctor X's last record was very disappointing, but his older stuff
    is definitely worth picking up

    And look out DJ Krash Slaughta's releases, they are all dope as hell.

    Finding foreign (whether it be UK, German, French or other) hip hop in
    the States is very hard (we do however carry a lot of it). A good
    starting place for German hip hop is the Yo Mama label (best known
    hereabouts for their trip hop duo Visit Venus). For French hip hop you
    can check out stuff by Assassin or Le Peuple De L'Herbe.

    seconding the nextmen recommendation ("amongst the
    madness" lp), also check out some homegrown uk mc'ing
    *and* beatmaking by roots manuva ("run come save me")
    who was recently featured on the last leftfield album
    ("rhythm & stealth") opening track "dusted."
    mr. skitz (producer/dj), rodney p (mc), mad doctor x (producer), mc ty,
    dj pogo, and the herbalizer (dj ollie teeba & jake wherry) all put it
    down uk style... if you can get your hands on the mr. skitz remix of
    "dirty beats" by roni size, definitely do it!
