5 Collabs in UK Rap that just make sense

UK artists are widely talented and known for accomplishing a variety of things, including the release of record-breaking hits and producing award-winning projects, all while rapidly pushing boundaries. However, the one thing setting the UK aside from their international peers is the seamlessness of the collaborations. Without further ado, here are our top 5 UK music collabs:

Jae5 & J Hus

As a producer Jae5 has one of the most distinctive sounds in the UK, which means anytime he links up with an artist it’s guaranteed to be a banger, however, when Jae5 links up with J Hus it’s a madness. Even though J Hus’ debut album ‘Common Sense’ was released 5 years ago, it already reigns as a cult classic, with Hus’ infinite wordplay and the executive production of Jae5, together the two created some of the street’s beloved tracks including the double platinum ‘Did You See?’, ‘Must Be’, ‘Friendly’ and more, these two have the perfect producer/ musician combo. It’s only a matter of time before these two join forces once again.

Fredo & Dave

Many artists state that the better their relationship is with another artist, the more authentic the collaboration is, with Fredo and Dave that is truly the case, the two first linked up in 2018 for ‘Funky Friday’, a track that earned Dave his first ever number one, musically the two have been inseparable ever since. Since then, Dave has featured on several tracks with Fredo including ‘Money Talks’ and ‘All I Ever Wanted’. Earlier this year, Fredo released ‘Dave Flow’, sharing his love and appreciation for the Streatham resident, as he interpolated Dave’s well-known sound.

Headie One & M1 on the beat

Another timeless producer/musician combo is no other than Headie One and long-time collaborator M1 on the beat, the two have worked together on an endless number of tracks including ‘Only You Freestyle’ ft Drake, Headie’s GRM Daily Duppy, ‘Golden Boot’, ‘Martin’s Sofa’ and more. Alongwith being an endless hitmaker, Headie One

Nines & 5ive Beatz

Ever since the release of his debut album ‘One Foot Out’, North London-based rapper Nines has worked very closely with super producer 5ive Beatz, along with a few other household names like Steel Banglez and Beatfreakz, however 5ive Beatz is one of the producers that supported the musician during the earliest days of his career on tracks like ‘Trapper of the Year’, which has accumulated over 25M views on YouTube, ‘I Wonder’, ‘Fire In The Booth (Part 2)’, ‘Tony Soprano’ and more. It’s been an outstanding few years for Nines, who now has four albums that have gone straight to gold including ‘Crabs In A Bucket’ and his latest release ‘Crop Circle 2’.

Mostack & AJ Tracey

Lastly North meets West with this link up – from 2019-2020 Mostack and AJ Tracey were consistently collaborating with one another, where they released a slew of tracks including ‘Dinner Guest’, ‘Miss Me’, ‘Floss’ and ‘Fashion Week’ with hit making producer Steel Banglez, the track peaked at number seven on the UK Singles Chart and is now certified platinum, a huge win for all three London residents.
