There is something very special and unique about the hip hop scene in the UK. It could be the way they bring many different cultures and elements in to the sound, or the ability to tell stories just like Slick Rick (also from the UK). One thing I do know is that they are taking the music to another level. Wiley is one of those artists to take it UK Hip Hop to another level. In his song, "Never Be Woman" he analyzes his 'antics' with women, which is a rare in commercial Hip Hop in the States. If you think you recognize the sample, well you should. It is from White Town's song, "Your Woman".
