So, this thread looking over it a few months later has a lot of missing information, and other artists that are pretty big in the scene that haven't been mentioned, but unfortunately I can't edit the OP post, so I am just gonna put it here.
Some new up and coming MCs.
- YGG (You Get Grime)
This trio of MCs PK, Lyrical Strally, and Saint P are an energetic and fiery grime crew coming straight out of London, yet to put out a project but have gassed live/radio sets and have a few pretty good singles out.
Here is their single "3 IC3s"
Here's their set on Sir Spyro's The Grime Show
- AJ Tracey
Pretty propular around here, doesn't really need an introduction. He has a few EPs out, and is just straight sick.
His track, "Naila"
His track with UK rapper Dave, "Thiago Silva"
- Capo Lee
He's been bubbling in the scene for a few years now and has done sets on Rinse FM and elsewhere, his style isn't my thing but I enjoy a few of his tracks. Frequent collaborator with producer Sir Spyro.
Here is his track, "Stop Talk".
Nottingham MC that's made his gains alongside his contemporaries, his voice is interesting and his bars are pretty sick from what I've heard.
Here's his track, "Normal Shoe"
- Izzie Gibbs
Manchester MC that is promising for a growing outer-London grime scene. Lots of energy and has bars for days, but has been going trap recently.
Here is his track "My Life"
- Big Zuu
Part of AJ Tracey's MTP gang and can always be found in like 10 layers of jumper suits, he's got an abrasive flow that rings ears.
Here is his track "Ain't No Joke" with Drifter.
Birmingham MC apart of the mostly Wolverhampton crew StayFresh, collaborates with big name MCs and can still hold his own.
Here is his track "Gyal From Brum"
Some more essential albums/tapes

- Ghetts - Freedom of Speech
