A Gentleman's Christmas with Mr. B

Jim Burke, a singer/songwriter who hails from the United Kingdom, is known professionally as Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer. Under this alias he performs what he dubbed as "chap hop" —hip-hop delivered in a Received Pronunciation accent. Mr. B raps, and rhymes, about good manners, dressing with style and dignity, sophisticated society,pipe smoking and cricket while playing the banjolele. The character is described as having grown up in Cheam and attending Sutton Grammar School for Boys.

In 2015 Mr.B released his first, and at the time of writing this it's unfortunately his only Christmas Album.
