    Episode 63 - You're Not Jiggy

    Episode 63 - You're Not Jiggy

    Your boys are back with the first RLD drop of 2022! We begin by recapping our Christmases and what we’ve been listening to recently, before discussing if and why rappers that made their name in the 1980s weren’t largely able to make a successful transition to the game in the 1990s.

    Off the back of criticism of Roddy Ricch’s latest album, we ponder whether young artists are being written off too quickly and given enough time to develop. We chop up Bobby Schmurda’s status in rap and whether he’s on the clock and then pick a rapper from the 80s and partner them with a producer from a different era.

    What we’ve been listening to:

    Peter

    Art School Girlfriend - Is It Light Where You Are?
    Nas - Magic
    Kirby - Sis, He Wasn’t The One
    Joyce Wrice - Overgrown
    Curren$y x The Alchemist - Covert Coup

    Moe

    Cordae - From A Bird’s Eye View
    Nas - Illmatic
    Rick Ross - Richer Than I Ever Been

    Yemi

    Cordae - From A Bird’s Eye View
    Earl Sweatshirt - SICK!
    Gunna - DS4EVER

    Episode 60 - I Was In Rikers! (ft. Chris The Capo)

    It’s the 60th edition and its a special one! We switch it up to present an episode solely on that age old staple of hip-hop: battle rap.

    We’re joined by Rinse FM host Chris The Capo, host of the Battle on the Roof Podcast. We get into the history of battle rap and how it’s developed over the years (17:24), before discussing why it has never really caught on in the UK (33:49).

    We debate why it’s been difficult for battle rappers to crossover to become successful musicians (53:09), and we name five battles you need to watch if you’re a beginner (58:42).
