Screen Shot 2019-10-17 at 1.04.46 PM

This episode is all about transitions, taking a stand and saying “Fuck The Rulez!” We talk about the growth and transition for artists like Guapdad 4000 and Summer Walker, the positive and negatives of jumping out of your comfort zone to live out your dreams, big businesses versus small business and how that tied in to the demise of blog culture, as well as KimYe and the importance of running things by your significant other. We also have an interesting conversation about “aging out of music” and how new music reaches us after a certain point in life.

BET Weekend with the homies was a vibe – especially at the Spotify party! – and as you can see, I reunited with the INTPL squad and it was such a moment that Complex even covered it! Pics below.
