Music Weekly podcast: UK rap with RoxXxan and Ghostpoet

This week's programme looks at UK rap. As a number of interesting artists are set to break through this year, Alexis Petridis and Rosie Swash look at a resurgence of the homegrown hip-hop scene.

Chantelle Fiddy interviews RoxXxan, a 21-year-old grime MC from Birmingham who is turning her skills to rapping - and was heavily tipped by Mike Skinner in his recent takeover of the Guardian's music site. RoxXxan discusses her influences and experiences as a woman in rap.

Rosie meets Ghostpoet - real name Obaro Ejimiwe - whose rap takes another form. Influenced by Badly Drawn Boy and Squarepusher, Rosie asks why these artists are important to him.

Alexis, Rosie and Chantelle also look back at some UK rap classics from Roots Manuva, Gunshot and Klashnekoff.
