Jabee

Ep. 195

A few years ago, we discovered the music of Oklahoma emcee, Jabee. We've been locked in ever since, and it's only right we invite him to the show fresh off signing a deal with Mello Music Group. Jabee shares exclusive details about his upcoming MMG debut and gets deep into his passion for social activism, the case of Julius Jones, the harsh realities of being a Black man in America, and more!

  • 196. The Great Rap War Breakdown: Drake Vs Kendrick Lamar

    02:04:58
    A few weeks ago, we linked up to talk about the burgeoning Hip Hop triple-threat match that we all thought was about to go down with Drake, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. Well, a lot has happened since then. J. Cole said "Sorry, nah" and left Drake and Kendrick to it. Bwoy... it's been a mad couple of weeks. Diss records have been made, shows have been fired, egos bruised, tea spilt, business exposed, family members violated and sleep has been lost. We're here to break it down to the very last compound, from the songwriting, strategy, best lines and more. As much as we love the music, we also explore the cultural themes around culture, identity, appropriation and history that remained prevalent throughout what we think will go down as the best battle in Hip Hop history.
