"Won't you come along with me, to the Mississippi? We'll take a boat to the land of dreams, steam down the river, down to New Orleans."

We have designated ourselves as the voices and ambassadors of one of the greatest cities in the world, New Orleans! Creole is the true New Orleans native. As for Retro, he's a country boy who moved to the Westbank of the city back in 2004, picked up on the culture and fell in love with the city, and later fell in love with one of the natives in the process. We're here to provide entertainment, local stories, and life tales and to become that outlet that allows you to laugh at the stupidity in the world we live in today.

Aww... But Yeah‪!‬ Creole & Retro

    Same Old Grammy Story

    Same Old Grammy Story

    We're kicking off season five with a look back at the Grammys, the winners, the snubs and Killer Mike's arrest. And why are BET, MTV and VH1 bleeding into each other? It's all the same shows on every network now. And we push for the BET awards to return to its glory days of being the Black Twitter (or X now, I guess) of the year. And we also look at Usher's new album.

    50 Years of Hip-Hop feat. Jahia

    50 Years of Hip-Hop feat. Jahia

    We're marking 50 years of Hip Hop. In this episode we discuss the current state of hip hop with Retro's longtime friend and artist Jahia. Jahia shares her creative process as a hip hop artist herself from writing her own lyrics to her visions for music videos. We also debate if the current artists are looking for longevity or are they just looking for that viral TikTok hit? We also look ahead to where Hip Hop may end up in the next 50 years. Will it still be around? Will it ever return to the commercial crossover success it saw in the 90s and early 2000s? We'll see.

    And check out her track "Something for the Sirens"

    Bondy Blue

    Whooo chile. This was an episode. It was a struggle editing this episode due to technical issues. But we finally have our lost episode with the one and only Bondy Blue of YouTube and Instagram fame. We talk about stepping out on faith to do what you love and find peace. We’re also joined by Bondy’s friend Peace of Serenity owner Francois who also stepped out on faith and started her own business. If this episode isn’t anything else, it’s inspirational.

    Where the Summer jams at?

    Where the Summer jams at?

    We trying to figure out where the hell are the Summer jams, because "Pound Town" ain't it. And we recap the Tony Awards and how it handled not having writers this year because of the strike. Plus the government is finally cracking down on Ticketmaster and their BS extra fees and why compliments from kids and gay men are golden. Lastly, would Creole be willing to wear an ugly wig if Tyler Perry relaunches 106 & Park? Hell, would you?
