    SHOTGUN THE CLASSICS -THE SAGAS OF...KLASHNEKOFF (with Harry Love)

    Welcome to  "Shotgun The Classics" where we revisit and breakdown some of our favourite Hip Hop albums.

    In this episode, we take on the UK Hip Hop masterpiece that is "The Sagas Of..." by Hackney rapper Klashnekoff released in 2004 on Kemet records.
    Once again, DJ and producer Harry Love joined us to chat about producing "Parrowdice" and possibly one of the biggest tunes in UK Hip Hop history... "Murda".

    SHOTGUN THE CLASSICS - THE RETURN OF THE DRIFTER (with Harry Love)

    SHOTGUN THE CLASSICS - THE RETURN OF THE DRIFTER (with Harry Love)

    Welcome to our brand new section - "Shotgun The Classics" (we couldn't come up with anything more original) where we revisit and breakdown some of our favourite Hip Hop albums.

    In this episode, we tackle the seminal UK Hip Hop classic "The Return Of The Drifter" by English rapper Jehst released in 2002 on Low Life Records.
    After revisiting the album in a track by track breakdown, we were joined by UK veteran DJ and producer Harry Love who gave some insight on how the project came into existence, meeting Jehst for the first time and being blown away by his bars, legendary street cyphers with UK Hip Hop royalty, and of course his production on the classic tracks "Alcoholic Author" and "Staircase to Stage".

    (Note: we were all scratching our heads (no pun intended) trying to figure out who performed the cuts for the record. Harry did in fact confirm after recording that this was in fact DJ Ideal)

    SHOTGUN THE BARS RETROSPECTIVE (With Lomax, Blurred Thirst, Cosm & Big O)

    SHOTGUN THE BARS RETROSPECTIVE (With Lomax, Blurred Thirst, Cosm & Big O)

    On this episode we catch up to chat about our recent "SHOTGUN THE BARS" competition.

    Joining us to shoot the breeze is our first ever STB champion Lomax, runner up Blurred Thirst, judge and rapper Cosm, and judge and producer Big O. Even Jake made an appearance for this one...so you know it's about to get serious.

    We discuss the competition as a whole from the qualifying round, all the way through to the finals. There were laughs, there were tears, there were moose's d*cks, there were vote rigging Russian bots (allegedly), there was beef, but above all...there were dope bars a plenty.

    If the above paragraph didn't make any sense to you, head over to our Instagram and check out the posts from the past couple of months before you peep this episode.

    A big shoutout to all of the finalists: PJD, Bxrbarian, Pique Roscoe, Mick Swagger, C.o.N-Vers, Reign, Naninho, Bucks, Archetype, Moo, Relly, Jaydar, Jacob Fiya Flaim, Blurred Thirst, and Lomax.

    Also shouts to all the MCs who participated in the competition, to Big O and g Man for providing the bangers, to Chester P, Verbz, and CLBRKS for helping us spread the word, and to everyone else tuning in. Until next time🎤🔥🍿
