Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week’s episode, Nic leads a tribute to slain rapper Pop Smoke who was murdered at the age of 20. With this being the latest in a flurry of deaths to take place this year, the boys reflect on his squandered potential and look at how he was bridging the gap between the drill scenes in the US and UK.
Next up is an increasingly violent and intense beef that is brewing between two of the UK’s veteran MC’s Sneakbo and Dot Rotten. Eden calls out the people on social media following gossip platforms who are revelling in this as if it’s a form of entertainment.
Is another Fyre Festival in our midst? The announcement of the Lovers & Friends Festival resulted in a lot of confusion as several of the acts on the bill claimed they weren’t set to perform.
Rounding up the episode this week is the 2020 BRIT Awards where each of the boys sound off on the winners/losers and performances. During this topic, a conversation surrounding black nepotism with regards to Mabel and Neneh Cherry is sparked where it's debated if Mabel’s success aids in opening doors for more black artists in the UK.
