    Episode 73 - Aficionados

    We're doing things a little different this week. We start with dissecting journalist Brian 'B. Dot' Miller's Best Rappers of the Midyear list (0:36), before discussing Young Thug, Gunna and YSL's legal troubles and whether rap lyrics should be used in a police investigation(25:35).

    We talk sampling and whether it's becoming too simplified in commercial rap (58:41) and name our favourite non-rap features on rap songs (1:22:35).

    We also want to thank all of the listeners for getting us to over 30,000 streams! We are eternally grateful for your listenership.
