In this episode, Wellington and Savon start off by discussing and reacting to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars and the aftermath of the situation. We also previewed the Duke-UNC Final Four matchup, thoughts on how consistent and dominant Kansas has looked and the Celtics’ major loss of Robert Williams for the rest of the season. We also review Denzel Curry’s latest album Melt My Eyez, See Your Future, discuss the rich sounding productions and Nigo’s fantastic track selection and features in his album I Know NIGO! Finally, we review Latto’s latest album 777, discuss her amazing talent as an up-and-coming rapper and Maverick Sabre’s 4th album Don’t Forget To Look Up.

In the second half, they review Raging Bull, the 1980 biographical sports drama film directed by Martin Scorsese. Starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Cathy Moriarty and Frank Vincent; they dive into how this film was a searing, powerful work about an unsympathetic hero, Jake LaMotta being one of the main characters where De Niro had to show the most visceral intensity. Finally, they analyzed how this film doesn’t have the same draw and replay value that Scorsese’s other standout films do but is still a very masterful work of art, deep in his earlier catalogue.
