Its been a while, but we back. This week cousin of the show Keith Nelson Jr. is back on to talk about the happenings in Hip-Hop. Most notably Remy Ma's release of the song ShEther, Drake playing to the crowd, and Just Blaze and Swizz Beatz had a battle live on Instagram.
Remy Ma put in some work on Nicki Minaj. The 6+ Minute song had more diss lines per minute than any other song since Game's 300 Bars. Now the background of why Remy dissed Minaj in the first place is in question but does it really matter? Pure Hip-Hop heads are rejoicing at some real competition that taking place among some frontline talent.
Is Drake the new OJ or is he a real chameleon? We have evidence that when Drake is feeling slighted about being nominated for Hip-Hop Grammys. Is that where he feels racism exist? Short answer? Maybe.
Just Blaze and Swizz Beats had a battle. Live. On Instagram. Swizz Beatz plays an unreleased song featuring Jadakiss, DMX and Jay-Z. 2017 thank you. The world needs this. Not just the Hip-Hop community, the world Craig.
This week on #DaRundown South Podcast, we talk about the Atlanta Falcons making the Super Bowl to take on the New England Patriots. This year the big game is in Houston. This means a lot of traffic will be coming from our hometown of Atlanta to Houston. What do those two cities have in common? You know...strip clubs. We discussed the implications of that fact.
Then we go into who should do the anthem for Atlanta's Super Bowl. Future? Migos? Ludacris? Jeezy? Maybe T.I. Either way we need one.
We wrap by talking about Chance The Rapper dropping the news that the Grammy's will be featuring SoundCloud projects for considerations. We try dig to what this mean to the Hip-Hop category which has historically been fumbled.
Thanks for listening!
Wudup Doe!? This week on the podcast we talk a lot of Atlanta Falcons because Sunday there is one last game in the Georgia Dome. It's probably the most meaningful game at the soon to be demolished building. There was an NFC Championship game in 2014 where the Atlanta Falcons gave up a 14 point lead to the then unstoppable, pre-"Freedom Fro" Colin Capernick. Only this time it't the actually unstoppable Aaron Rodgers that's in town with 52 cheesy challengers. So could you see why some of the die hard fans don't believe. I also had a lot of questions on how we got here in the first place so I called up friend of the podcast Aaron Freeman of FalcFans and the Locked On Falcons podcast, to figure out what's changed with the Dirty Birds and why they won't go back to who they were.
Thanks for listening!
Wudup Doe? Happy New Year and welcome back to #DaRundown South. This week Keith Nelson Jr. from Digital Trends joins me once again to talk about Nicki Minaj break up with Meek Mill. Chris Brown and Soulja Boy are ready to scrap, and the Golden Globes turned into the Soul Globes this year. Follow the show @DaRundownSouth and thanks for listening.
Wudup doe! We back again this week to you know kick it. It's the holiday season and the Christmas weekend was jam packed full of NBA and NFL action. On this episode we look at the home team Atlanta Falcons chances at a Super Bowl birth and the rest of the NFL Playoff Picture. In the quick hits we go over Kodak Black's live stream, Drake dating J.Lo, and the T.I. and Tiny divorce filings. Thanks for listening!
Another episode this week. This time we have Kieth Nelson Jr. from Digital Trends to talk about some the Hip-Hop that is being released in December right in time for the holidays (1:30). We discuss the new J.Cole album "4 Your Eyes Only" and check the progress that the Roc Nation artist has made so far.(8:40) We took a short break from the music jump into the hit HBO show WestWorld. We look at some the Reddit theories that were right and some of the things that should have been obvious, like Anthony Hopkins demise on the show.(25:40) Kanye has returned and the first thing on to do list were 1. Dye his blonde and 2. Meet with President elect Donald Trump. (32:02) We speculate on his motivations and what his next wave of music will sound like. We wrap up the podcast talking a bit about Gucci Mane's trouble with the way the industry moves. (38:52) We compare the project he did with Future to one Drake did with Future. It looks like Gucci is missing out on some streaming dollars.
Wudup Doe? I know its a been a while but we back with a new episode. This week we discuss the Atlanta Falcons flops, their secondary, and where they stand in the conference. Then we look at the NFC Playoff Picture as a whole. Would Matt Ryan want the New York Giants in the first round again? Can the Seahawks go hard without Earl Thomas? Will Dak Prescott have a rookie moment at the wrong time? We preview those answers and throw a lil NBA Talk.
The Dallas Cowboys have a decision to make in whether to keep Dak Presscott starting or go back to Tony Romo. I understand there is momentum to protect. It seems that the media and the fans believe more in the narrative of Tony Romo being a screw up or someone who can't win when it counts instead of what he is. Which is he is a to 10 quarterback in the league. Sometimes you have to look at the stats and look at the sum parts. Dak isn't ask to do a whole lot and it's working. With Romo being out a few more weeks, the decision for the Dallas Cowboys will be even harder.
Russell Crowe tosses Azealia Banks out of his dinner party. Banks was the plus one of RZA and from sounds of it, she didn't fit the crowd. As you can imagine both parties have completely different stories. Crowe's people are saying that Azealia criticized the music selection by calling them "boring old white men" Apparently Russell didn't like it and yolked her ass out the party. Banks on the other hand say something a little different. According to a TMZ interview, she was choked, spit on, called the N word, and RZA did nothing. She fired all kind of shots. Who do you believe? I can't wait for the entire truth to come out.
This week on the podcast we interview Toronto HipHop Artist Shah. We talk about his new single "Riding Shotty With God" and his upcoming A3C performance. Then we pull up on Eazy's Life from the home team and we get into so NFL storylines like the Same Bradford trade and are the Atlanta Falcons for real?
The Game vs. Meek Mill (14:05)
It seems like Meek Mill keeps walking into L’s. The latest coming at the hand The Game. Within a week Game dropped 92 Bars an bagged that up with Pest Control. To make it something serious the Game dedicated an entire visual experience for Pest Control. Even with Meek Mill’s OOOUU Remix it’s like nothing he is doing can seem to connect in anyway shape or form. As Keith said he is a “millennial gangsta rapper” and does things about the money.
Chance The Rapper’s Independence (32:28)
Chance has shown that his moves are about Chance. He drops an album excursively on Apple and then follows that up with the live stream of the Magnificent Coloring Day on Tidal. Chance is doing some things that haven’t been seen on an independent level in the streaming era. With Drake getting a billion streams on Apple, we could possibly see Chance go a more profitable route at the end of the day. It’s all about progression in the music. We compared the progressions of Drake, Jeezy, and T. I.
FX’s Atlanta (58:45)
When it comes to TV shows, I’m very selective. When it comes to TV shows set in Atlanta, my expectations couldn’t be in any lower. So when FX decided that they were green lighting the Donald Glover’s ‘Atlanta‘ set in the ATL, I sighed but was optimistic. I’m so glad I gave it a shot. This could be possibly the best show since Mr. Robot. We check in on the first season so far.
