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 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. Then he talks about the response and what he's learned from the release of his debut album earlier in the year, the pros and cons of music schools, and what he's cooking up for his next effort. Lastly we talk about signs of depression and cries for help in hip-hop music and whether the onus is on fans to speak up and/or reach out when they hear it over and over again.
