The Show: And whatever happened to Bubba Sparxxx?

Kudos to Denzel Curry for rhyming Bubba Sparxxx with Rosa Parks in “Take_it_Back_v2”, one of our favourite couplets of the year so far.

“After dark the riot starts, way uglier than Bubba Sparxxx
Still tryin’ to raise the charts so I don’t have to push a shopping cart
You fell in love with Kali Ma, but now it’s time to take your heart
These niggas want to take it back like civil rights and Rosa Parks”

The Show: I’m a librarian… from Wigan.

There are too many cracking songs and, in the case of Lynks, too much energy to be contained within our usual 2 hour limit. So it’s an expanded 130 minute episode of The Joint this week.

Don’t forget to support the sponsors of the show – Future Promotions, Innocence Back2Back Mixtapes and, of course, the Ravers Dateline (0839812752 to meet boy ravers and 0839812753 to meet girl ravers).

And on with the show…
