Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week's episode, the listeners section inspires two in-depth discussions. As Sope shares his thoughts on Ty Dolla $ign's new album 'Featuring Ty Dolla $ign', he raises the question as to why for all his success as a featured artist and songwriter, why has there been a disconnect with his own material?
Meanwhile Eden's championing of neo-soul artist Jerome Thomas leads to a conversation about the lack of infrastructure for R&B artists in the UK compared to grime, drill and afro-swing.
Heading towards the news agenda, Diplo is believed to be potentially grooming 19-year-old TikTok star Quenlin Blackwell. Subsequently bringing to the forefront previous allegations around his improper and abusive behaviour with underage girls in addition to Azealia Banks and M.I.A.
Next up is the The BET Hip-Hop Awards and the guys evaluate why DaBaby lost all 12 of his nominations and share their thoughts on the cyphers.
Closing out the episode is a 'Groupchat Convo' segment inspired by the realms of Black Twitter. Subverting the popular conversation around dating and 'The Ick', the boys discuss the artists who over the years have made them feel this way.
