Brooklyn Props – The Brooklyn is the New Seattle Episode
The crew is back at Ishlabs to recap the summer. We start with the most successful albums of the summer, giving props to Big Sean, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Jay-Z and Kanye. We also talk about the song of the summer (“Blurred Lines”) and the Robin Thicke vs. the estate of Marvin Gaye legal controversy.
If you haven’t listened to the Big Sean “Control” single you should check it because we go in on the Kendrick verse that has every rapper in the world writing response tracks. We get into whether it is a diss or a call to arms? After some real bad K.Dot impressions, we review the MTV Video Music Awards. Everything from Miley’s Asian man butt to Justin Timberlake’s epic performance. Is MTV relevant to thirty-plus hip-hop heads? Listen and find out!
All that plus One Direction vs. Brooklyn, Brooklyn as the new Seattle and whether hispter hood is the new grunge. Is 2 Chainz really Dave Chappelle? What is up with Drake and tank-tops? Are Joey Fatone and Chipotle made for each other?
