Tonight (Aug 31st) at Electric Picnic, thousands of people will gather for a history lesson. From 2FM Live, The Story of Hip-Hop – Part 2 is a performance taking listeners through the many faces of hip-hop, from The Sugarhill Gang to Kendrick Lamar, Stormzy and Drake.

The show’s creative director, Adam Fogarty (a.k.a. Mathman), sat down with guest-host Baz Ashmawy on The Ryan Tubridy Show to tell him what audience members can expect.

The show is "an absolute monster", Adam says, with a 40-piece orchestra working in tandem with 4 singers who "live and breathe" hip-hop. If you’re not lucky enough to be there in person tonight, the whole set will be broadcast on 2FM this Sunday from about 5pm.

Listen back to the whole interview on The Ryan Tubridy Show here, and enjoy Jim Carroll’s special report on The Story of Hip-Hop here.
