5. Episode 259: Thoughts on The Ambassador’s XXL Response Article
Earlier this summer, XXL Magazine published an article entitled “New God Flow: Religious MC’s Shed Title of ‘Christian Rappers’ to Attract Mainstream Fans.” The article spotlighted several Christian artists who have been able to make waves in the mainstream hip hop community. The Ambassador penned a response article and posted it on his website last week. On today’s show, I share my thoughts on both articles.
In this week’s Going in Mix, we start of with a new Thi’sl record called “We Blind.” We also feature some 116 classics, the DJ Malski “We Flashin'” plus a few mash-ups
In the guest spot, we discuss Ambassador’s article plus play the new Propaganda and Sho Baraka record “I Ain’t an Answer.”
