The series based on the popular Apple Music playlist will feature a mix of music, interviews and discussions around hip-hop culture.
Apple Music’s popular Rap Life playlist is getting its own Beats 1 radio show, starting Friday (Oct. 18) at 1 p.m. EST.
Rap Life With Ebro Darden will spotlight the playlist's latest additions with extensive discussions around hip-hop culture. Hosted by Beats 1 on-air personality Ebro Darden -- who was named Apple Music’s global editorial head of hip-hop and R&B in January -- the show will be a mixture of interviews, original reporting and chatter with fellow Beats 1 personalities Nadeska Alexis and L-Boog, among others.
As Darden tells Billboard, the show will not only be a way for he and the Rap Life team to highlight the most popular songs on the playlist -- in a segment they’re calling “Rap Life’s Most Wanted” -- but to introduce the audience to some of the under-the-radar tracks (both domestic and international) that they think deserve more love.
