BBC Radio 1Xtra has a unique place in the hearts of the artists it champions, as these tributes show...
“BBC 1Xtra has always supported artists like myself. They have undoubtedly been one of the reasons the sound of the streets has been successful on a larger scale and is no longer limited to the underground. It’s a good time to be in the rap scene. Rap saved me, really and truly.”
