From "Infrared" to "Duppy" and "The Story of Adidon" to goodness knows what comes next... Things have gotten nasty between them since "Daytona" dropped.

Episode 75 finds us highlighting a recent album by a wonderful artist, Royce da 5'9".

"Book of Ryan" is Royce's seventh album - ignoring his work with Bad Meets Evil, Slaughterhouse and DJ Premier - and quite possibly his finest album to date.

We reflect upon aspects of his entire career, and Rochard explains why this is his favourite album of 2018 thus far!

"Dirty Computer" is Janelle Monae's third album, and the first to break away from her Cindi Mayweather narrative. (Check out Episode 28 for more on her).

"Isolation" is the debut from Kali Uchis, and is getting rave reviews. Is it worth the hype?

It's episode 70 and we prepare for an "Invasion of Privacy" from Bronx rapper Cardi B.

She's got the tweets on fire with her debut album, and there are plenty of topics to discuss: career-hopping; THAT voice; New York; tracks to DJ; reality TV...

And congratulations on her pregnancy!

Episode 63 is all about Eminem' new album "Revival" (2017).

We go through his latest LP with a fine toothcomb, debating the highs and lows of what Marshall Mathers finally delivered.

It's a great starting point for developing a framework in which to understand it, and our conclusions may surprise you...

Episode 58 is a discussion all about a living legend, Busta Rhymes. We are both huge fans of Big Trev so it's a great listen for honorary members of the Flipmode Squad!

We each take five pivotal songs and expand upon them. It was such fun to reminisce about Bussa Buss, he's truly underappreciated in this era.

Episode 51 is a discussion on two albums by a husband and wife. You may have heard of them...

Jay-Z "4:44" (2017) vs Beyoncé "Lemonade" (2016) proves to be a lively discussion indeed! There is so much to unpack.

As a bonus, check out the new track "Soul Train" by Premz featuring Heems at the end. Premz is a good friend to the podcast, having been on previous 50 Cent and Jay-Z episodes - we wish him all the best with his dope new song!

This week, we have a very special guest returning... Premz.

In Episode 13, rapper Premz talked about one of his favourite albums ever: "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" by 50 Cent (2003). It has become one of our Top 3 ranking podcasts ever.

Now he returns and the topic is a juicy one: Jay-Z's 1996 debut "Reasonable Doubt." It's a wonderfully expansive deep-dive into a much-loved hip hop classic.

Many thanks to Premz for being a truly fantastic guest - you can get at him here:

In Episode 46, we welcome a very special guest onto the show for the first time:

Who is Kishan?

Who is Kishmeister?

Who is Broken Soul Boy?

He goes by many a name, but music is his game! It's a nice discussion on one of his favourite albums, "Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol.1" by Jill Scott.

Her 2000 debut was a neo-soul masterclass, and there is much to discuss. Many thanks to Kish for dropping in!

Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 44, for the first time in our history... No Rochard... No special guests... Just Jesal!

This week, I check out "So Good" (2017) by a wonderfully talented young Swedish lady called Zara Larsson.

It's one of my most listened to albums of 2017 thus far, and with her upcoming London concert, I felt a duty to shine a light on it. It's an incredibly accomplished pop debut and jolly good fun at that.

Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 43, we take a look at an extremely impressive (and underrated) album called "Humanz" by the animated group Gorillaz.

We tackled their entire discography in Episode 16 (go check that out) but here we digest and spew forth our thoughts on their most recent LP - and it turns out the deep dive was fully warranted.

It's a political and energetic tour de force, more reminiscent of a mixtape, and one we predict time will be kind to.

Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 42, we take a look at the complete works of Kendrick Lamar (one of our favourite rappers).

Kendrick is an artist who inspires much debate, and this episode is no different. It's a lively look at all his albums thus far, and broader discussion about his role within the genre.

Plenty of other topics pop up, including Drake, J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco, Nas and Jay-Z.

Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 39, we take a retrospective look at three pivotal albums by those pesky Oxford rockers, Radiohead.

There are discussions on "The Bends" (1995); "OK Computer" (1997); and "Kid A" (2000).

It's a controversial look at three oft-revered albums, and it may well ruffle a few feathers. "OK Computer" is one of Jesal's favourite albums ever and it turns 20 soon.
