Essa London, UK
It's not your typical rap sheet. Born in a leafy suburb, educated at a prestigious boarding school and qualified as a city lawyer. But somewhere along the way (under former name Yungun) Essa became a key figure in UK hip-hop's "golden era" with shameless party joints, cryptic love songs, bilingual Spanglish wordplay and soul-searching escapism, earning nods from the likes of Nas and Mark Ronson.
