Check the Rhime focusses on hip-hop music culture since its inception in 1973, from the disco and funk breaks of the seventies up to the leftfield lyrical concepts of now.

It'll run with a slightly lucid interpretation of the genre - as well as obvious boom-bap, music from the likes of D'Angelo and Thundercat might get thrown in too. Anything that shares some form of genealogy and revolves around break-based sampling and/or emceeing.

It's hosted by DJ and journalist General Jimmy, who'll be joined each week by a guest discussing their love of hip-hop. It'll also explore one sample source each episode, looking at the ways in which hip-hop has taken inspiration from it.

This month, General Jimmy treats us to an RNB special, paying particular attention to The Notorious B.I.G and his role in growing that style of hip hop!
