Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
After a lengthy hiatus allowing for rest over the Christmas and New Year period, Eden, Sope and Nic are back! Season 4 is finally here and with a jam-packed episode.
Kicking off the news agenda this week is Kelis' recent interview with The Guardian where she revealed that The Neptunes swindled her out of a huge cut of royalties on her first two albums.
Harlem World rapper Mase follows suit as he exposes former boss Diddy for refusing to sell him back his masters - speaking out against his hypocritical speech at a pre-GRAMMYs event where he said the organisation needs to do better by black artists. This seamlessly leads unto a full scale breakdown of the 2020 GRAMMY Awards with Sope, Nic & Eden sounding off on this year's winners, losers.
Closing the episode out, each of the boys take the time to consider where they all personally stand with the GRAMMYs as an institution in 2020 and how much they value do they still place on it.
