In the first segment of this episode, Confucius and Fresh interview comedians Rochelle Genivive Clinton, Dasharae, Daniel West, and Jordan McDonald.
For Hip Hop Facts Fresh talks about Nick Cannon’s pre-Wildin’ Out backing by Will Smith, the myth that Naughty By Nature’s Treach left a reptilian surprise for Tommy Boy Records CEO Tom Silverman, and DJ Premier’s unexpected discovery of Travis Scott through his church community. Confucius discusses why Ice Cube passed on what later became Tupac’s role in the John Singleton film Poetic Justice, how Tupac invented the Humpty Dance, and what Master P said to Snoop Dogg after Snoop recorded an “F Death Row” album for Mack10’s label Hoo-Bangin’ Records.
Fresh’s Unpopular Opinion covers how he doesn’t care how people choose to celebrate Juneteenth, nor the notions of corporations pandering to black consumers, especially if you’re not from Texas!
Confucius wraps things up with the announcement of Beyonce’s album Renaissance: Act 1, Anthony Fauci testing positive for COVID-19, and the granting of additional humanitarian aid to Ukraine.
