Big shout out the the family Gabe P, remember to keep being great and to never scare the women!

Amazon Music has announced the launch of two new weekly flagship music series: the hip-hop-focused “Rotation Roundtable” and the Latin/pop culture show “La Semanal Live.”

“Rotation Roundtable,” premiering March 15, comprises a hybrid Twitch livestream and 60-minute podcast experience inspired by Amazon Music’s “Rap Rotation” and “R&B Rotation” playlists. It is hosted by journalist, the meme God and executive producer Speedy Morman, Power 105.1 host/ producer Nyla Symone, “On the Radar” creator Gabe P aka Mr. B*tches, and industry veteran Rob Markman.

Each episode will feature a “Big Questions” segment meant to instigate conversation about current events in hip-hop. The show will also consist of “Hot Takes,” guest interviews, and a debate segment fueled by chat participation.

Based on the new music playlist of the same name, “La Semanal Live,” which debuts March 24, explores the week’s biggest stories and releases in Latin popular culture and music. Hosted by Gio Rosado, Puerto Rican journalist, the 60-minute live music show set in Miami will feature artist interviews and other guests, including the new Platino DJ Mode radio host Grecia Lopez.

“Rotation Roundtable” will air on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch, with episodes available as a video podcast the following day on Amazon Music and Wondery’s YouTube page, and as an audio podcast on all major services. “La Semanal Live” on Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on the Amazon Music en Vivo Channel on Twitch, with video clips available in the Amazon Music app.
