Meek Mill’s finally free, Kanye West in the sunken place?, and is KOD J. Cole’s best album yet?
We’re back and talking about Kendrick Lamar becoming the first non-classical, non-jazz musician to win a Pulitzer prize for music, Meek Mill finally being released from prison and whether we’ll get a Drake collab to capitalize on the moment, and give our expectations for Drake’s recently announced next album, Scorpion. Then of course we talk about all of the madness surrounding twitter and Kanye West and his upcoming projects. Lastly, we breakdown J. Cole’s latest album, KOD, whether it’s his best album yet, and try to understand why he’s such a polarizing yet wildly successful figure in hip-hop.
