In honor of National Weed Appreciation Day, Jamila Rowser & Julian Lytle join me to discuss chopped & screwed music in general and specifically the Chopstars (AudioMack, chopnotslop.com). Big KRIT’s Keep the Devil Off, a transition between two phenomenal Drake tracks, and Travis Scott, Justin Bieber, and Young Thug’s epic Maria I’m Drunk guide the conversation.
Once a month in 2018, we’re dropping thirty-some minutes of deep conversation about music on you. In honor of Black History Month, Jamila Rowser & Julian Lytle join me to discuss Robb Bank$’s Die4Me, Leikeli-47’s Attitude, and Kali Uchis, Tyler, the Creator, & Bootsy Collins’s After The Storm.
Jamila Rowser takes the reins and leads a posse cut with David Brothers and Julian Lytle about one of our favorite songs this year: Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow. You know where she at. You know where she be. You in the club to party—she gets paid a fee.
Jamila Rowser is a creator, cosplayer, and hustler. She’s a big fan of OutKast’s SpottieOttieDopaliscious, a seven-minute epic charting two journeys from boyhood to manhood. It’s a real funky song, and Jamila brings a vital perspective.
Dana’s about to turn thirty and feeling it! Luckily, Hayley Williams and Paramore are here to help her through it. We talk about emotional resonance, growing into a band, and the disconcerting and cool “Caught In The Middle” by Paramore.
