Childish Gambino dropped This Is America and the takes poured in. David spoke with friends—Jamila Rowser, Jacob Shapiro, Chris Butcher, Jemar Souza, Esther Kim, and Julian Lytle—about the video and what it meant to them.
It’s April, and that means it’s time for another Speakertalks! This time around, David, Jamila, & Julian talk about a couple songs that make them feel proud to be black: Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” and Solange’s “FUBU.”
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.
