Skepta, Krept & Konan, Tinie Tempah and even Stormzy, maybe names you recognize from the UK Hip Hop music scene, but how much do you know about its origins?

Set against the backdrop of London’s gritty street culture, the Director of “LDN,” Nathan Miller takes us through the UK Hip Hop scene today. From the early days when the ‘mandem’ carried guns to shows not knowing if they would get home in one piece, to the millions of views UK Hip Hop now garners on YouTube and the worldwide attention, it enjoys today.

This documentary highlights exactly what Hip Hop is about no matter what side of the world you live in, it is the soundtrack to one’s life when you don’t have it, but you won’t stop grinding till you achieve the dream.

Watch “LDN” below.

Evidently, UK Hip Hop is still very much just getting started but it’s quite exciting to be living in its golden age and hey, if Troy Ave is NuPac, LDN is certainly the new West Coast rap scene!

Born and raised in East London, the young filmmaker, Nathan Miller documentaries have been featured in everything from The Source to BET, check it out here.
