Hot Takes
hiphop // instrumental // rap // 808s // heartbreak

Rap oddities, exploring the underrated, overlooked or misunderstood hip hop gems of the last 40 years. The list of styles to be considered fair game are G-funk, Crunk, Memphis Rap, Trap, Boom Bap, Mafioso, Electro, Cloud, Mumble(!?), Trip Hop, Drill and everything in-between.

No rock shall be left unturned, no era left behind, from the paranoid ramblings of Gangsta Pat and the irresistible soundscapes of DJ Quik to the bombastic delivery of Lil Kim and the hard-as-nails beats of Young Chop. Each show will give focus to specific cities, scenes, sub-genres or moods, remaining in reverence of the greats whilst also keeping a close eye on The Next Big Thing™.

Tune in, drop the top and expect the unexpected.

**Nice weather intensifies**

After a month off in the sun "Hot Takes" make it's return.

This episode is dedicated to the sounds/feelings of a woozy summer evening in the big city:

Cans, loose fitting shirts, leather sofas, holding onto the spliff for too long, missed calls, a white benz, hazy sunsets and the only time of year where G-Funk sounds right. Think bbq vibes but with 808s and the drip.

Expect droopy trip hop, chopped and screwed summer-jams, scorching Datpiff discoveries and a heavy dose of Our Lord Saviour: Ty Dolla $ign.
