Texas has a hip-hop culture and history all its own, and now, two public radio DJs explore the art form in a podcast called “The Breaks.” 

Confucius and Fresh of KUTX-Austin say anyone curious about Texas hip-hop needs to know about Lizzo’s Texan heritage, Austin’s thriving (and often unrecognized) hip-hop scene and how Megan Thee Stallion’s recent album, “Fever,” put Houston hip-hop back in the national spotlight.

Listen to the rest of the story in the player above, and find “The Breaks” on KUTX or wherever you listen to podcasts.
