RAP RADAR PODCAST CLICKS WITH WMG
Rap Radar has been added to Warner Music Group's new in-house podcast network, Interval Presents expanding portfolio. The show which is hosted by hip-hop journalists Elliott Wilson and Brian "B.Dot" Miller, will feature interviews with hip hop big names such as JAY-Z, Drake, J. Cole and A$AP Rocky.
The move is further indication of the majors' push to ensure that
their music content is well represented amid the podcast boom.
“Partnering with Rap Radar was a natural fit for Interval Presents," said the latter's GM, Allan Coye. "The show embodies our mission to uplift diverse voices through content that touches on music, pop culture and social impact. Elliott & B.Dot are titans in the hip-hop community who have brought us some of the most captivating and honest interviews with the biggest artists in the genre. We’re excited to help the show reach new heights.”
Wilson, who crowned Future "the best rapper alive" in a GQ cover story in April, is equally thrilled about the, um, future. "We’re excited to work with the Interval Presents team and to continue to have dialogue and conversation that speak to the minds of the ever-growing hip-hop community,” reads a quote attributed to him. “Interval Presents stands for values rooted in authenticity and music artistry, making the network the perfect home for our podcast.”
The new season of Rap Radar will drop on the 18th of August. Stay tuned!
