Welcome to the Musical Minority. We are three unabashed music loves who can share a passion for both Mad Men and Rick Ross, for DMX and Little Dragon. We are highly opinionated and we won’t hold anything back. The panel consists of yours truly, Mary Pryor (aka @laydeefly), and Wes of the Oakademy lifestyle label (@oakademy). We all came together this week to discuss our dislike for BET, Rick Ross, Drake (Mary: “he sounds like someone is choking him in the throat”), the fall of the New York “sound,” and CMJ. Prepare to be offended.

The Topics

  • (1:30) Why we did NOT watch the BET Hip-Hop Awards
  • (2:15) How can you hate on Rick Ross??
  • (4:57) Nasty Nas is BACK! But is he still relevant?
  • (12:50) Should we drop the “B” in BET?
  • (26:26) Has the New York “sound” fallen off?
  • (32:00) CMJ Week discussion
