By Spotify Studios

Battle rap is the most challenging aspect of Hip Hop. It is the ultimate form of lyrical wizardry which requires an immediate understanding of language, a necessary expertise in order to spontaneously upstage an opponent in the most flagrantly offensive way possible.  Professor Green dropped out of school at the age of 13, and first appeared on the scene as a battle rapper who very quickly earnt his stripes in the ring. From freestyles, to gold albums, to Platinum singles, and sold out tours, Stephen Manderson aka Professor Green has lived what some would consider to be 'the dream' several times over. But there are dreams and there are nightmares.  The reality is that Professor Green’s personal journey has been far from easy. He has endured more traumatic experiences within a few years than most people experience in a lifetime. In this episode of Who We Be Talks_ DJ Semtex connects with Professor Green to talk in depth, to discuss his personal story that is overwhelmingly heart wrenching as much as it is incredibly inspirational. Some how some way he has been able to turn his own personal tragedies into triumphs.
