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
