Always on the go, Virgil Abloh took some time out of his busy schedule this week and dedicated it to music as he joined his pal Benji B to co-host Benji’s BBC Radio 1 show. Virgil’s appearance on the program comes as his “Figures of Speech” exhibition is currently on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
During the two-hour show, Abloh discussed his relationship with Benji, his appreciation for BBC radio, his recent Coachella set, and producing music. In addition to the conversation, Virgil and Benji of course shared a selection of tunes, going so far as to play rare and even unreleased music. We hear tracks by Kanye West, Tyler, the Creator, Drake, Skepta, and Swae Lee, among others, including new remixes from Abloh.
