Andrea and Niall discuss the furore around Versatile, the Dublin comedy rap duo who sold out a show at the 3Arena this coming November. We discuss their attempts at satire, stereotypes, misogyny, whether they represent Irish hip-hop or are just Youtube edgelords.
Prompted by our Songs of the Summer article last week, we lay bare some personal favourite summer songs.
Plus Dean Van Nguyen drops in to discuss why he wrote a book about one of Wu-Tang Clan’s own Tony Starks in his book Iron Age – The Art of Ghostface Killah.
