The good and bad changes coming to Spotify and YouTube and dealing with depression in hip-hop

We're back and we're joined by special guest Jaron Lamar Davis, who joins us to talk about the major changes headed to both Spotify and YouTube and the positive and negative effects they'll have on musicians, particularly independent ones.

We're back and we finally got Cardi B's long anticipated debut album. We discuss our thoughts about the project and whether or not we believe it lived up to the immense hype and talk whether Nicki Minaj was being petty for starting her rollout right after it's release. We also talk about Apple Music removing the ability to download music and the increasing hold streaming services are having on people, if we think Coachella has become too mainstream and started to plateau, and our first 5 star album ratings of 2018 from Young Fathers, The Weeknd, and Saba - among other things....
