Welcome back to Don't Alert the Stans!
For this week's episode, Nic and Eden kick things off by speaking on the huge breakthrough that recently arose in the long-running saga around Lizzo's 'Truth Hurts'. Mina Lioness at long last has been granted a writer's credit on the hit single, leaving the boys to consider whether this will finally put a lid on the matter.
Rihanna was at the mercy of rabid stan culture when the Navy attacked her for featuring a Chris Brown song in a promo video for one of her Fenty products.
Next up, the boys debate claims that Cardi B has opened more doors for female rap in recent years, breaking down the complexities of her rants. Drill rapper Rico Racks has been sentenced to jail and has been banned from using certain words/phrases in his music, sparking another discussion about the surveillance and censorship of black artists. Questioning why the government aren't tackling the issues that lead to the creation of such genres.
Closing out the episode is Tank's controversial comments about men and gay oral sex. Sope leads the discussion speaking out against the double standards that plague black men not having the freedom to explore and experiment with their sexualities in the way women and white men do.
