 British hip hop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
British hip hop is a genre of music, and a culture that covers a variety of styles of rap music made in the United Kingdom.
British hip hop, was originally influenced by the hip hop scene in New York City, at first being very much in awe of the American innovators, with British rappers often adopting American accents in the early years, before gaining the confidence to develop their own styles.
British hip hop was also hard hit by the record industry waking up to the implications of sampling, and beginning to charge for the use of samples and prosecute those who used them without permission.

 British Isles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.isi.jhu.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The end of the British Empire in the latter half of the 20th century saw the end of large-scale emigration; instead, there was immigration to Britain, especially from the West Indies and the Indian sub-continent, and recently to both Britain and Ireland from eastern Europe.
As a result of Irish secession from the U.K. in 1922, the use of the name "British Isles" is sometimes controversial in the Republic of Ireland and amongst Irish Nationalists in Northern Ireland, because its use could imply a continued constitutional relationship between the sovereign states of the Ireland and the United Kingdom.

 Hitsburgh: Battling the British Invasion
A few years after doo-wop lost its footing on the pop charts, the British Invasion arrived to fire the opening shot of a cultural revolution, introducing legends as enduring as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Although the original three-man lineup, as captured on "69," would go its separate ways before the year was out, the song remains a local cult hit on the underground, as resurrected in the '80s by the Cynics, whose Gregg Kostelich in 1999 released the first Arondies CD on Get Hip.
At times, the music -- cut in sessions dating from November 1964 to a radio appearance on McKeesport's WMCK in '65 -- takes on the primal feel of something the Arondies might have played in Hamburg while sharing a bill with the Beatles.
