Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week’s episode, Eden, Nic & Sope break away from their regularly light-hearted disposition to express support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement. The boys individually share their thoughts on the recent murders of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, Belly Mujinga and Ahmaud Arbery.
Circling back to regular proceedings, the news agenda begins with the news that Megan Thee Stallion has finally topped the Billboard Hot 100 with the remix of ‘Savage’ featuring Beyoncé.
Next up, the boys debate the significance of a massive hip-hop conglomerate like Def Jam Recordings opening a subsidiary of their label dedicated to African artists.
Closing the episode is an in-depth dissection of Doja Cat’s official response(s) to the many allegations of white supremacist and self-hating behaviour surrounding her in the last few weeks.
