No other UK-based, online interview series has impacted the urban music scene like Not For The Radio. Hosted regularly on YouTube, this latest 'net sensation aims to get to the nitty gritty of all the important information (and the scandal) that you—the people—want to know about some of your favourite entertainers, which ranges from rappers to actors and comedians.
And, there is nowhere to hide: guests are often put on the spot with hard-tasked questions that your average journalist would be weary to ask. It's straight to the point. No pussy-footing around. And that's what makes the show so appealing. Based in London, NFTR is fronted by three familiar faces: MTV and BBC presenter Duane Jones, Face4Music's Chams, and Posty from GRM Daily. Collectively, they boast over thirty years in the industry so they know a thing or two about running successful brands—but this one has the potential to best even their biggest gigs to date.
From Lethal Bizzle discussing the zeros in his bank to Wiley waxing about his turbulent relationship with Dizzee Rascal, Not For The Radio's always insightful, always humorous Q&A sessions have become the talk of many a town—with a super loyal following that keeps on growing. And with millions of views now locked in the vault, it's no wonder they're being likened to NYC's The Breakfast Club—aka the infamous trio of Angela Yee, DJ Envy, and Charlamagne Tha God. Complex meets Duane, Chams, and Posty to discuss their careers leading up to this point.
