Charlie Sloth confirmed for weekly Beats 1 Rap Show

Former BBC presenter Charlie Sloth is joining Beats 1, three months after leaving Radio 1.

His ex-Radio 1 colleague Zane Lowe, who joined Beats 1 when Apple launched it in 2015, tweeted Charlie is joining to host the Charlie Sloth Rap Show every Saturday starting this weekend.

Charlie left the BBC early after an on-stage rant at the ARIAS last year, shortly after he’d announced he was leaving Radio 1.

The show description says “UK DJ and producer Charlie Sloth invites the freshest names in the game to deliver Fire in the Booth freestyles, as he taps play on the latest hip-hop heat. Charlie Sloth Rap Show debuts on Saturday January 19 at 12 p.m. LA, 3 p.m. NY, 8 p.m. LDN, returning every Saturday thereafter.”
