Lyricism and his respect for the culture and tradition of hip-hop is still front and center but with a modern NY sound and feel that doesn't feel too contrived like it did at times on Paranoia. This is the Dave East I've been waiting for - full of lyrical venom, vivid storytelling, and street wise gravitas, yet still in touch with the times.
We're back catching up about what's new in the art world, discussing whether the "Coachelification" of Art Basel is a good thing, and Baltimore Museum of Art's pledge to purchase art solely from women in 2020. Then we catch up about Kanye West and Jesus Is King, Joker, the Martin Scorsese and Disney+ controversies, and recent album drops.
We're finally back and discussing all the major happenings in music like Lil Wayne's long, long-awaited Carter V album, T.I.'s best album since Paper Trail, more unnecessary collabs from the likes of Lil Baby and Gunna, Vic Mensa killing his own career, and Kanye going off the rails (again). Oh and we also throw in some talk about the McGregor vs. Khabib sh*t show and go on a far too long aside about Dragon Ball Super (it happens more than we'd care to admit).
