This week on The Local Show, we rap about Hip Hop.

Host David Campbell was joined by H2 hosts Siddiq and Kevin Beacham, who are also two key members of the Rhymesayers Entertainment team, a local label that has helped make a name for MN Hip Hop around the world, and the crew behind Soundset - the states preeminent Hip Hop festival. You'll get the details on Soundset 2014, happening May 25th at Canterbury Park, and hear music from some of the local talent on the bill - including the world premier of the new Dem Atlas single "All We Got."

In hour two Campbell was joined by the one and only Mark Wheat to chat about the May artist of the month, Atmosphere, and to debut another song from their new album Southsiders

Loads of hip hop, new singles from forthcoming Haley Bonar, Bob Mould, and Leisure Birds albums, and more all on this edition of The Local Show
