This weeks show features a special Austin Peralta Maida Vale clip from Janurary 2012.

Along with Words and Music from Kendrick Lamar. The 25 year old rapper released his critically- acclaimed debut album Good Kid mAAd City last month on Interscope. Hailing from Compton, a LA neighbourhood with a rich history of producing era-defining acts like NWA, Kendrick appears to be the next great MC to emerge from that lineage.

His debut album is a complex series of intertwining tales discussing the struggles of growing up in inner-city America. It showcases his lyrical dexterity and creative ambition, as well as an acute social conscience and empathy for the struggle of others.
