It's Grime Up North

Charlie Sloth has been on a road-trip to find the hottest rappers up North and try to understand why rap music in the U.K is dominated by the London scene.

He's travelled from Newcastle to Liverpool, Manchester to Sheffield, Huddersfield to Leeds; spent time in boxing gyms with aspiring MCs; and met feared battle-rappers working the night-shift in Morrisons.

It's Radio 1 and 1Xtra's first multi-platform documentary available to both watch and listen. Featuring Shotty Horroh, Bang On, Tez Kidd, Hoodman, The Projekt and Sermstyle.
