My Record Collection by Charlie Sloth

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of Radio 1/1XTRA DJ and hip-hop tastemaker Charlie Sloth, let's see what he's got for us...

 

The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

"The Slim Shady LP. This was so raw, Eminem sounded like nothing else before him, his word play was sick."

 

The record I've played more than any other is…

"Who Shot Ya by Notorious B.I.G.  Biggie is my favourite MC of all time, and, as a fellow fat boy, he showed me you could be fat and have swag too."

 

The record that always make me feel good is…

"That would be Eminem - Rabbit Run."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"DJ Khaled's 'All I Do Is Win'. But, if you know me, you know I'm rarely ever down!"

 

The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"Big L's first two albums: Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous and The Big Picture. Big L was one of the greatest spitters of the 90s, but due to his early passing he never really got recognition on a global scale."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Ready To Die by Notorious BIG. Simple and Effective. For a long time I used to think that was actually BIG on the cover!" 

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"Ima Boss by Meek Mill. Well my nickname is The Guvnor..."

 

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"That would be anything by Iggy Azalea."

 

The last record I bought was…

"Rick Ross's Hood Billionnaire. No one can A&R an album like Rosay. He's been so consistent for the last five years."

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2015 is…

"Drake's new album. Drake can do no wrong and his ability to appeal to both the hood and mainstream is unrivalled."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"Easy. Rapper's Delight by Sugarhill Gang."

 

Charlie Sloth's new compilation Hood Heat, Volume 1 is out now.
