Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer

Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer is credited for originating chap hop, a musical genre that satirically fuses hip hop with a British “chappist” sensibility (also known as “anarcho-dandyism”). His bio states that he “began his Chap-Hop career in the summer of 2007 when he decided to bring elements of his previous incarnations (UK rapper, jump-up breaks producer, banjolele maverick and dandy) together and create a genre.”
