West Indies Migration

Other than Derek B being the first successful UK rapper, a cross pollination through the migration of West Indians helped develop a community interested in UK's hip hop music.(1)
British tunes starting to appear first ever when a London DJ by the name of Newtrament released the first ever Brithop tune called "London Bridge." Newtrament was a DJ coming from West Indie migrated in London around 1983 becoming credited with releasing the second ever British hip hop record in the UK.

Other than the West Indies sharing their rhythmic styles of mixing, scratching, and disc jocking skills in the UK hip hop emergence, the Asian population started to feel left out.
