hmv presents: My Inspiration Podcast - Kae Tempest

For the third episode of hmv's brand new podcast, My Inspiration, we welcome Kae Tempest.

My Inspiration is a new series from hmv in which we give musicians, actors, filmmakers and producers the chance to take a welcome break from talking about themselves and instead talk about their greatest inspiration. 

In today's episode, we sit down with the rapper, poet, author and playwright Kae Tempest to talk first about their new album The Book Of Traps And Lessons and their chosen inspiration. 

For their inspiration, Kae has picked Confucius MC, a childhood friend and a fellow acclaimed rapper. Tempest talked about growing up together, the influence he's been on their own work and the chance of a future collaboration. 

You can listen to the podcast below and make sure you check back on for more episodes of My Inspiration...


Kae Tempest's new album The Book Of Traps And Lessons is out now in hmv stores.

(Please note that this episode was recorded when Kae was still known as 'Kate Tempest', and that they are therefore referred to as such throughout).
