Matt Edmondson knows a thing or two about music. He can tell you who came 5th in series 4 of the X-Factor, and how many Brit Awards Adele has in her loo, but his knowledge is limited when it comes to hip hop. Under the watchful eye of Charlie Sloth, Matt steps out of his comfort zone and discovers just what being a hip hop artist entails.
Charlie challenges Matt to write and perform his own rap. In order to succeed he must immerse himself in the hip hop world. He gets style advice from Liam Toothill, Managing Director of SBTV, plus tips on writing and delivering his lyrics from Bigz. He also speaks to Skepta and finds out what record labels look for in hip hop artists.
In preparation for his own rap, Matt has a go at hip hop karaoke in front of a live audience in a London club. Luckily he has three hip hop karaoke professionals to help him with his nerves, including 11 year-old Webster - who started his Hip hop karaoke at the age of 9!
Will Matt learn enough to impress Charlie?
