Accompanied by original music from Stanley Odd’s Dunt, Series Producer Delaina Sepko chats with Mistah Bohze & NC Epik, Becca Starr, Bigg Taj & Spee Six Nine, Empress, CRPNTR and Vagrant Real Estate about their careers and music.

Hearing from the artists themselves, this series challenges the idea that Scottish people can’t rap, shouldn’t do it in their regional accents and explores why Scottish hip hop is still marginalised despite its almost 40 year contribution to the musical genre.

K107 airs the series starting on Wednesday, October 6, from 11:00pm
