Watch: Ty Talks to Monie Love About the History of UK Hip Hop

Earlier this month, US-based British rapstress Monie Love flew back across the pond to perform at Fresh Since 88, a nostalgic concert held at The Forum in Kentish Town.

Monie grew up in south London and was one of the first English rappers to make a name for herself in America during the late 80s/early 90s, following a collaboration with Queen Latifah (above).

We sent revolutionary rapper Ty to have a no-holds-barred chat with the veteran emcee, who he says inspired him and a generation of hip-hop artists in the UK.

Watch Monie break down the history of British hip-hop in her dressing room at The Forum (above).
