    is you still a fan?”. On this episode, we have a roundtable discussion
    about why all of our faves are threatening to leave the industry, what an
    artist owes it’s fans and how we as fans should have more grace for the
    complexities of being a creative in the public eye.

    From The Bottom of The Map

    From The Bottom of The Map

    It’s hard to deny the global influence of southern hip-hop culture. As with many trends started by Black Americans, the music and culture pioneered by southern creatives don’t always come with respect for its architects or an understanding of the culture’s diversity. On this episode we chat with Southern-bred DJ, artist and tastemaker, Sade Powell about the enduring impact of Southern culture, and how it informs her work as a multi-hyphenated creative.
