Welcome back to Don't Alert the Stans!
For this week's episode the boys are joined by UK Hip-Hop artist/producer Kadiata. In addition to churning out incredible songs for himself like "Margherita" and "Goodnight", he has also helmed songs for the likes of Sam Wise, Che Lingo, Miraa May and Jgrrey. Inspired by one of Eden's suggestions, the boys speak about songs and artists guaranteed to elevate their moods.
Kicking off the news section is Chance The Rapper's recent thread on Twitter alleging that the public are driving him to be suicidal because of the polarising reaction to his debut album. Next up, the boys weigh in on the massive spread of "Greatest Rapper" lists that have been making waves on social media
Rounding off the news section is an extended conversation on Mahalia's back and forth with a Twitter troll, who insinuated that she is emblematic of a problem the British music industry has with propping up lightskinned R&B female singers. Concluding the episode is an interview with Kadiata; delving deep into the semantics around pop music, how he approaches producing for himself versus other artists, the thought process behind his visuals and much more.
