also jamaican accent is british accent as they fe the ones who colonized and enslaved the country

same reason that most black canadian rappers sound jamaican (not drake). most of the black residents are the result of immigration rather than mass imports of slaves, both because it was abolished earlier than in the US and because they didn't have domestic industries that required as much slave labour. Since there are a number of commonwealth countries in the carribean its a natural fit for them to emigrate to the UK and Canada. heres a documentary about it

I only listen to white rappers, and both British and Canadian white rappers sound extra white to me, no hint of Jamaican accents at all.

A lot of Inner City Black British English sounds like that.

I don't have ethnic and/or historical details, but a lot of them have island heritage.
