British broadcaster, DJ, producer and author, DJ Semtex, has launched the trailer for a new podcast entitled Hip Hop Raised Me, featuring “exclusive, no-holds-barred conversations with the artists that define the culture”.
Chauhan produced BBC 1xtra radio shows including The Friday night Hip Hop show with DJ Semtex and Destination Africa, hosted by DJ Edu.
The weekly series starts on January 11 with the legendary Chuck D of Public Enemy, who joins DJ Semtex for a conversation about Public Enemy and the group’s contributions to hip hop music and to the larger community.
They also discuss the making of the 2020 remix to their hit Fight The Power.
Upcoming episodes feature Busta Rhymes, French Montana, Jeezy, Sheff G, and more.
Semtex has played a key role in breaking some of the biggest hip-hop acts on both sides of the Atlantic.
He’s also the host of the popular UK-focused Spotify podcast, Who We Be Talks.
The broadcaster’s relationship with, and history in, the hip-hop community is detailed in his 2016 bestselling book, Hip Hop Raised Me.
“These are in depth conversations with artists across the globe, no agenda.”
DJ Semtex said: “These are in depth conversations with artists across the globe, no agenda. New cutting-edge artists. A-list artists. Architects of sound. Moguls. Icons.”
“Hip Hop is now the biggest art form of this generation. It is the Rock and Roll of the youth, a genre that transcends race and culture, this it isn’t going to stop anytime soon.”
