Hip hop hits Scottish community radio K107 – RadioToday
K107fm will air The Scottish Hip Hop Show in October and ask the question… Can Scots rap?
This is a six-part radio series featuring artists who contribute to and advance the vibrant hip-hop scene in Scotland.
Accompanied by original music by 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.
Some of these artists were there early when hip hop took hold in Scotland in the 1980s. Others are relatively new. Together they represent the breadth and depth of Scottish MCs, beatboxers, engineers, producers and DJs.
Listening to the artists themselves, this series challenges the idea that Scots can’t, shouldn’t rap with their regional accents and explores why Scottish hip hop is still marginalized despite its contribution of nearly 40 years the world’s most popular and profitable musical genre.
The Scottish Hip Hop Show is an Immaculate Reception production, funded by Creative Scotland and Audio Content Fund.

- Wed Oct 6, 2021 from 11pm: Episode 1 Spee Six Nine & Bigg Taj and Episode 2 Becca Starr
