Good Morning Mix: A-Trak beasts a two-hour hip-hop mix for BBC
A-Trak throws down with a hip-hop-heavy mix for BBC 1Xtra’s rap show with Tiffany Calver. The two-hour audio also features an interview with the Fool’s Gold label boss and a stop by from South Londoner A2, who recently released his All Spill album.
London grime dominates the beginning of the mix, throwing slowthai, Krept & Konan, Digga D, and Octavian in the first 20 minutes. J. Cole’s “Dreamville” flies by and the chart-topping “Suge” by DaBaby brings the commercial appeal early on. After A2’s showcase soon after, more popular names continue to douse the decks with Drake, DJ Snake, NAS, Chance The Rapper, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang Clan, and many more heavy hitters looking to amp a Saturday night pregame or prime-time Wednesday night alike. A-Trak’s single with Young Thug and Falcon featuring 24hrs, “Ride For Me,” also makes an opportune appearance towards the end.
