November had a ton of great new albums and music videos from the likes of Meek Mill, The 1975, Ariana Grande, and Hozier; and it also featured some interesting trailers for The Lion King, POKÉMON Detective Pikachu, and ROMA. We've highlighted some of the best drops over the month and now we're ready to crown the best album, movie trailer, and music video.
We're back and discussing a lot of news happening in and around music like Kanye postponing Yandhi once again, Missy Elliott preparing her return to music, little known band, Threatin, pulling one the greatest dupes in rock history, and more. Then we discuss if we feel some type of way about Ariana Grande's now #1 hit, "thank u, next", Stan Lee's impact on hip-hop, and 15 years of The Black Album and it possibly being Jay-Z's best/most impactful album out of his whole discography. We close things out by breaking down recent album releases and the new music we can expect over the next couple of weeks.

If you are trying to understand the Lil Peep phenomenon, which has more to do with the case of an internet celeb on Xanax than music itself, then I believe that this biopic will introduce you to who he was to the core.
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.

While there's no way that this was the exact vision Lil Peep had for this project, they still did a good job of highlighting the immense talent and potential he had as an artist that could blur genre lines and be the face of this new "emo rap" wave.
This week we talk about Big K.R.I.T.'s latest double disc effort, 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time, and whether we think this is his definitive album thus far. Also, we talk about the surprisingly dope SYRE by Jaden Smith and debate whether or not Cyhi's long awaited debut, No Dope On Sundays is a top 5 rap album of the year.
