Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week’s episode, Sope starts with a #RespectingLegends tribute to Andre Harrell and Little Richard, who both sadly passed away at the weekend.
Kicking off the news agenda is the growing popularity of the #NS10v10 artist clashes. The boys breakdown the battles that took place between Usher and Chris Brown, N-Dubz and WSTRN and Vybz Kartel and WizKid.
The mention of Vybz Kartel leads to a discussion on the difference between publicly supporting Vybz Kartel in comparison to R. Kelly.
With news that Drake is set to miss the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200 for the first time in his career with ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’, a continued conversation around Drake’s place in the current music landscape takes place.
Finally, hip-hop’s most polarising figure, Tekashi 6ix9ine is back in the news following the release of his new single and an IG live session which had record-breaking viewership and inspired a series of antagonising tweets from Meek Mill.
