Our longest episode ever is PACKED TO THE BRIM with that music talk you love so much. We had frozen margaritas too, so things get loud and ridiculous. Even more than usual.
This week’s episode is mainly about us making sure you’re taking care of yourself.
WE MADE IT TO 500 SUBSCRIBERS!!
You guys are the greatest. No podcast out right now has better listeners and friends. Seriously, I’m not just saying that to say it. You’ve stuck with us through everything in the past year or so, and I can’t appreciate you any more than I already do. It’s just not possible!
This episode is pretty much a love letter to you guys, and a bit of a discussion about opinions takes place at the end that I really think you should hear. We talk about Corinne’s new album (again), Zo!, and… mac and cheese balls. ENJOY!
MUSIC: GOT IT GOOD – KAYTRANADA (ft. Craig David)
(please don’t sue, I’m not making money off of this, I just wanna spread the good music to the peoples.)
This has been the busiest weekend I’ve had in a very long time.
A few months ago, I heard about this festival called The Art of Cool out in Durham, NC. It had a lot of amazing acts attached to it, and since it was only about a six hour drive from here in Atlanta, I decided that I’d try and make time to attend. Then, some amazing women (shout out to Asiah and Sierra, even though neither of you could make it) had an even better idea: why not try and apply for press credentials?
In my mind, that’s a crazy idea. No way will that work. Why would a guy like me, someone with a small-time music podcast with a barebones website, ever get to have access to talk to artists like Anderson .Paak face to face? And yet, despite my pessimism, I was definitely accepted in the group for passes! So I took off a day from work, linked up with my high school friend Chris Russ (aka @faruhdey), and got into one of the greatest weekend experiences of my life. Listen to all of our stories, including casually running into Maségo and finding out he’s from the 757, re-encountering All Cows Eat Grass from the Hiatus Kaiyote concert, hearing Terrace Martin and Rapsody speak on To Pimp a Butterfly, and SO much more. (It’s a long episode, we barely had time to actually talk about new music!)
You make a bomb ass visual album.
I never thought the day would come where we would spend an entire episode reviewing a Beyoncé album, or want to do it, and yet here we are. Continue reading “Episode 57 – When Life Gives You Lemons…”
You ever listen to a song once, then go back and listen to it later, somewhere else, and it’s changed somehow? Continue reading “Episode 56 – Who Keeps Updating My Music?”
Ding dong, the crown is gone!
LOVERS OF MUSIQ, REJOICE!
HE HAS RETURNED TO US WITH NEW MUSIQ! Continue reading “Episode 55 – The Husel is Dead (For Now)”
For only 9.99/month…
In all honesty, I probably deserved it.
I “slander” Big Sean on an almost weekly basis nowadays, thanks in no small part to people getting into loose debates with me over his relevancy and weight in today’s rap game. Most of you do a really bad job of making your case, by the way. So it only makes sense that the second half of TWENTY88 would go out of her way to block me…
Anyway, we talk about that in this week’s episode of the podcast! Check us out and help me figure out if I really deserved this or not. I still like Jhene’s music, and this little album wasn’t bad either:
We started our Song of the Week this episode too!
Kim chose “Underground Kings” by Drake:
And I picked “Infatuation” by Lipstick Gypsy:
Also we went back to answering listener questions and we’d like to hear more from you! Drop some in the comments below! Thanks for listening.
