Speakertalks: Julian Lytle on “Get It Together” by Drake, Jorja Smith, & Black Coffee

This is Speakertalks, Volume 1.

One song. One guest. One conversation.

Let’s get it:

Julian Lytle explains the gospel of Heartbreak Drake through the lens of Drake, Jorja Smith, & Black Coffee’s “Get It Together,” from the album More Life. What’s up with house and rap music? What kind of storytelling wave is Aubrey on?

The Way We Move: Evan Narcisse//New York, New York

The Way We Move is a free project that is intended to share some of the wisdom I’ve gleaned from simply talking to people about the world they live in. I’m blessed to know a lot of people who are doing things that inspire me, impress me, or give me hope. I chose six people to speak to face-to-face for this project. They’re writers and accountants, musicians and martial artists…

Rather than holding court on some subject or another or trying to solve some major issue, I spoke to these people about themselves and let the conversation be what it was gonna be. In the end, we discussed protesting, activism, punk music, defining our identities, cultural sabotage, video games, martial arts, and more.

The distance between what we expected back then and how we live now is where The Way We Move lives. Listen to one episode a day, like a vitamin.
