with KC

You Must Learn will take you on a journey though the lineage of hip hop, from the first Golden Era to the modern artists keeping that spirit alive today.

This is a show for people who can’t answer a question about their Top 5 because they’ve heard too much music to narrow it down.

A show where you can both reminisce over classics and discover new gems.
