Is UK on verge of Brithop boom?

A new crop of British urban music artists are gathering major awards, rave reviews and chart success. Is the UK on the verge of a homegrown hip-hop revolution?

When the Mobo Awards picked the world's best hip-hop artist in September, the prize did not go to US heavyweights 50 Cent or The Game.

An unsigned and largely unknown British rapper, Sway, stole the award - a sign that the UK's street stars may finally be ready to challenge the scene's American rulers.
