May 01, 2016

Yesterday, Pharrell and Scott Vener's Beats 1 Radio Show OTHERtone shared a preview of today's episode which features hip-hop and electronic producer Flying Lotus as a special guest. As FACT Mag shared earlier today, the clip starts out with Vener posing the question to FlyLo: I don't mean this as a provocative question, but do you think hip-hop is in a good place right now, like lyricist-wise? To this, the big-grinned California producer can only chuckle before responding, "Yeah, absolutely."

Pharrell then jumps in to point out "every generation" usually has a negative view of the music genres that are being shaped by the generation younger than them. The three then go on to examine the ongoing shifts in hip-hop and which direction it appears to be growing in. Watch above.


Listen to Pharrell and Scott Vener's Beats 1 Radio Show OTHERtone today at 12PM PT / 3PM ET on Apple Music.
