Cappin’ for Unhinged Creatives

Kanye West has made more than his fair share of outrageous headlines this past week, leading Confucius and Fresh to wonder…why continue to cap for unhinged creatives past their point of no return?

And when it comes to the current generation of younger rappers who seemingly can’t dress themselves, is it generational taste, or just objectively gaudy?

Hip-Hop Facts features tidbits on DJ Premier, Lil Jon, and Frank Ocean plus anecdotes on 8 Mile, Men in Black, and more.

Fresh’s latest Unpopular Opinion makes it clear: put Nicki Minaj alongside her rapper peers instead of atop the pop pedestal.

Finally, Confucius Reads the News on Steve Bannon’s prison sentence, Nick Cannon’s latest kid, Elon Musk’s Twitter purchase, and Rihanna’s new single.

The Slap!

Confucius and Fresh give their takes on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock during the Oscars and talk about Doja Cat’s announcement that she’s retiring.

This week on Hip-Hop Facts you’ll hear interesting things about the real singer on Will Smith’s “Men in Black,” how Fat Joe is connected to Grandmaster Flash, why Prodigy’s verse never ended up on M.O.P.’s “Ante Up” Remix,  Why Pusha T may resent McDonald’s and more!

Fresh states the Unpopular Opinion that hip-hop journalism is in as good a space as it’s been in a while.

Confucius talks about the return of NASA’s Mark Vande Hei after 355 days in space, the latest COVID booster news, the slap, and Joe Biden’s comments about Putin.
