(Radio.com) Drake, Jay Z and Kanye West collaborator Swizz Beatz says that the best hip-hop right now is coming out of the UK. "Just last night I did a track with Giggs and it's a movie," he told BBC Newsbeat.

"There's a lot of talent out here. Musically the UK is stronger than the U.S. right now. As far as the hunger and the unique vibes. I'm into that because I am global thinking anyway. So when I come back to the States and artists hear the hunger [coming from the UK] they're like, 'Okay now I need to do this…' and that's great."

Beatz, who is married to Alicia Keys, also endorsed singer Angel and other UK performers. "I believe that the artist should be free… you free the artists, you free world. Creativity is not to be locked up. It's like a bird, don't cage it, it has to fly." Read more here.
