Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For the penultimate episode of Season 6, an impromptu conversation about the history and erasure of black rock indie musicians comes to the fore following Nic’s recommendation of Willow Smith’s new single Transparent Soul.
Officially kicking off the news agenda this week is Mary J. Blige who’s partnered with Amazon Prime for a documentary centred on her 1994 classic and era defining sophomore album ‘My Life’.
In news that is music to Sope’s ears, Chris Brown has shared that he’s not in an immediate rush to release a new album and would rather wait until he feels his fans truly miss him.
Swizz Beatz - who in recent months has emerged as a corny and exasperating figure - has called out Justin Timberlake to do a VERZUS battle to make up for his “crimes” against black culture.
Closing out the show is an extensive conversation about RapCaviar who named Drake, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Nicki Minaj as the Mount Rushmore rappers of the 2010s. Sope, Eden and Nic discuss in-depth the criteria for the list and weigh up if this line-up is wholly indicative of Hip-Hop’s cultural landscape across that decade.
