If you could only choose 20 artists to listen to
on a deserted island in prison, which ones would you choose? The Mirror pulled some data from National Prison Radio, a station that broadcasts to 84,000 inmates in the United Kingdom, 4000 of which requested songs.
Everyone’s favourite hologram rapper 2Pac tops the list, with the rest having a heavy emphasis on Jamaican reggae and dancehall artists, though there are a few wildcards (UB40? Evanesence?!) thrown in the mix. It’s worth noting that the only female artist to make the list is Rihanna.
All in all, this would make for a pretty eclectic mixtape. Did any of your deserted island artists make the cut?
