Skepta

Skepta (above), Giggs and Kano are among the grime acts to receive two nominations each in this year’s Rated Awards shortlist.

All three are in the running for both the Best Video and Best Artist accolades at the 7 September ceremony, which will celebrate the best in British urban music.

In the Best Artist category they will go head to head with acts including Chip, Stormzy, Ghetts, Section Boyz and Lady Leshurr.

Elsewhere, Chip and Ghetts have been shortlisted in the Best Mixtape category, bringing their nominations to two as well.

The awards, launched last year, were founded by GRM Daily and partner KA Drinks and will return to the Camden Roundhouse in 2016.
