More about this show
  • FUNK
  • RAP

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.

General Jimmy is back for this month, with a special guest in the studio!
