JJ Esko kickstarts new season of Hype On The Mic

BBC Asian Network have premiered the start of a new season of #HypeOnTheMic, beginning with Leicester’s own JJ Esko.

The series, presented by DJ Limelight and Kan D Man, primarily showcases up-and-coming talent of British-Asian rappers. Having begun in 2018, Hype On The Mic provides a platform for new artists to demonstrate their abilities and an opportunity for listeners to diversify their range of preference.

The premiere of JJ Esko’s session swiftly follows the recent release of his freestyle on GRM Daily, which saw him make lyrical reference to his Pakistani roots.

His latest track ‘WYNB’ was also released at the start of the month, which saw the artist reflect on his life journey so far.

Are there any Asian Manchester artists that you’d like to see on #HypeOnTheMic next? Let us know @pieradiouk.
