Welcome back to Don't Alert the Stans!
For this week's episode, Sope returns from San Francisco and true to form kicks off the episode by #RespectingLegends. Leading a tribute to the late songwriter/producer LaShawn Daniels who helmed songs for the likes of Brandy, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Destiny's Child, Blaque and more, shining a light on his indelible contributions to R&B music.
Unsurprisingly, Wiley's antics make their way onto the agenda yet again as he continues his tirade against Drake. This time due to vocal clearance issues with Popcaan who is signed to Drake's OVO imprint.
Next up is a discussion on the wider societal implications regarding Mac Miller's fatal drug-dealer being arrested and charged. Tekashi 6ix9ine is back in the headlines as details pertaining to the proceedings of his upcoming trial become increasingly public where he is set to testify against several members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang.
A brief conversation about the news that Megan Thee Stallion has signed a management deal with Roc Nation soon follows. Rounding out the episode is a biting dissection about *that* kiss between Camilla Cabello and Shawn Mendes, questioning whether their relationship is genuine or the work of music industry politics.
