Agenda with Beats by Dr. Dre is a new series hosted by the multihyphenate Big Zuu which brings together some of the U.K.’s biggest artists and influential names to talk about topics important to the local artist community.
The first episode has launched today and two more are expected to come soon. In episodes one to three, Agenda will hear from Ghetts, Dizzee Rascal, Ms. Banks, Maya Jama, Tiffany Calver, Zeze Millz, Ray Blk, Asim Chaudhry, and Alhan. The presenter Big Zuu has said, “we are moving forward and there are things that are kind of changing the outlook of what it is to be an ethnic minority in Britain.”
Episode one features Big Zuu alongside Ghetts, Zeze Millz, and Asim Chaudhry on a pre-recorded video call discussing artistic responsibility, lyricism, the issue of colorism and typecasting in the industry. The points touched on throughout Agenda are personal to those speaking — for example, Ghetts discusses his Kojey Radical-assisted single “Black Rose,” while Chaudhry offers advice on how to deal with typecasting, and Zeze shares her thoughts on black female representation.
Watch Agenda with Beats by Dr. Dre, hosted by Big Zuu, above. Episode two will drop on July 3.
