The New New: 15 European Rappers You Should Know

International New New dvs

Hometown: London, England
Twitter: @TheRealDVS
Notable Song: “Hometown”
Sounds Like: The soundtrack of the British hoods (it’s not all tea and crumpets!).
Why You Need To Know Him: In Brixton, South London, dwells one of the UK “road rap” team’s strongest players. Armed with a polysyllabic rhyming pattern, DVS is mostly flashy and boastful with it (“Life Of A Real G“), but can also switch it up and give you visceral thoughts on everything from religion (“Back In Jahiliyat“) to relationships (“Black Waterfalls“) when he’s ready. His fans are die-hard, too, which was further proven when London Boy American Dreaming—the rapper’s third tape and first for-sale project—landed at No. 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart upon its release in January. Even when there’s been gaps as long as four years between mixtape releases (One In A Million dropped in 2007, One In A Billion in 2011), at the drop of one three-minute freestyle, DVS can have the scene in the palm of his hands all over again. —Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson
