You once said, “We all grew up on hip-hop, so that’s why I think my show never really changed, but rather the times changed.”
I meant that there was a logical evolution in my show. As I was getting older, the show grew into another beast and evolved naturally. The music industry changed the rap game as well; it became today's pop music. I lived through that shift and couldn’t always relate to the sound direction or the lyrical content, so I started to play everything that I liked, and that’s a whole lotta music. And I still run the radioshow weekly on the national station, as well as my weekly on Gilles Peterson’s WorldwideFM.
