    EP. 55 - Diamonds Are Forever

    For the last installment of our Artist Analysis Series™ for 2019, we honor the legacy of the first group/label we chose to cover, Roc-A-Fella records. The house that Biggs, Dame & Jay built had a profound impact on music and the culture in general. The rise and prominence of individuals like Young Guru, Just Blaze and Kanye West, business ventures like Rocawear, 40/40 Club and introduction into films like Paid In Full, Backstage, etc. No matter the market, the Roc was there. We pay homage to the individuals behind the scenes that were instrumental to shaping the landscape that is the music industry and artistry that we see today. So please press play and throw your diamonds up.

    EP. 54 - Give Folarin His Flowers

    For the latest installment in our Artist Analysis Series™, we try to give Wale his flowers. As always we start with our introduction to Wale and reviewing his discography. We then try to determine why there seems to be a disconnect between his music and the general audience, whether a lack of a classic plays a part, whether signing to MMG was detrimental to his career, why he is so misunderstood & the most misunderstood rapper ever. Will he ever overcome his past transgressions, if he is a tormented soul, the role media outlets play & much more. We end things off by attempting to define his legacy when it is all said and done.

    EP. 51 - Can't Stop, Won't Stop

    For the latest installment in our Artist Analysis Series™, we discuss the legacy of the man of many monikers, Sean Combs. We start off with our initial introduction of Puff Daddy & our current thoughts on his career. We jump into his personal discography across various genres and his hands on the various music he is responsible for. We attempt to determine how many classics he is responsible for, whether he is the best talent scout ever or his true talent is maximizing others' talents. We divulge in his business acumen across two plus decades, why more artists do not seek tutelage from him and lastly while he may still be under appreciated even after all of his accomplishments in the game.
