This week Branden and Maurice hold it down with no guest and talk about some things going on in the news right now.
:30 Branden was actually in Virginia Beach right after the mass shooting. The guys speak on how mass shootings are making the gun rights discussion in America that much more difficult. They also debate if we are all starting to get desensitized to gun violence.
8:20 Branden wonders why it takes mainstream media (TV/Film) and celebrity mentions to make people aware or care about certain topics. Namely, how it seems that people are just now hearing of the Central Park Five after Ava Duvernay’s Netflix series “When They See Us.” Maurice offers reasons why that may happen.
21:00 Jay-Z is the first billionaire in Hip-Hop. Who do you think can become the next?
26:00 Is Megan Thee Stallion breaking the trend of women rappers who had to be “put on” by a male rapper or producer? They also talk about how women in rap are probably making the most interesting music right now. They also talk about why it took so long for another woman rapper to interest men in a real way.
32:00 Rihanna is reportedly worth $600 million now. Will we ever get another album from her. Or does it mean she can have even more creative freedom? After this the guys close the show talking about this year’s One Music Fest lineup.
