In this episode, Wellington is joined by special guests Maurice Hendricks and Isaiah Barthelus, two good friends of the show, to analyze and review Drake’s new surprise album and fully dance album Honestly, Nevermind. They dive into how this album sounded drastically different sonically and highlight how Drake was wanting to show his range and venture into a new arena and sphere. They also review Logic’s album Vinyl Days and discuss how underrated of a rapper he’s been for the last few years and give high praise to some of the features including Russ and The Game. They also review Westside Boogie’s Black Superheroes album, analyze the improvements that could have been made later in the project and review REASON’s latest single “It is What It Is” featuring Jay Rock.
In the second half, Wellington and Maurice review New Jack City, the 1991 crime thriller starring Wesley Snipes, Ice-T, Allen Payne and Chris Rock. They dive into how this was a very vintage New York City-based crime drama and how it has a good, cultural look in how the drug empire emerged in big cities. They also discuss the classic character Nino Brown, how Wesley Snipes fit the role perfectly and American Gangster later benefiting from a film like this and implementing different components into it.
