To celebrate ERYKAH BADU's birthday, The Music Snobs invite you to relive her first appearance on the show.
Erykah Badu Guest Stars on The Music Snobs. The TMS crew + Badu kick things off with an introspective look into the prolific career of Ghostface Killah and discuss the method behind Tony Starks’ mad genius. Then Arthur, Isaac, Jehan, Scoop, and Erykah examine the long history of image within the music industry and try to draw a line between musicians who have used image to improve their art, and those whose image has overshadowed their music. Finally the crew engages in a wild rapid roundtable that poses an interesting question: What is the one song lyric you’d love to actually say in real life… but know you never will?
Get ready for one of the most highly anticipated episodes of The Music Snobs yet, as Erykah Badu joins us long enough to reveal a side of her we guarantee you’ve never seen.
Much too soon.
Black on all sides.
When Snobs get in their feelings, you don’t want to miss the results. Scoop, Isaac, Jehan, and Arthur present the very first TMS Valentine’s Day special, kicking things off by looking into the heart of the current rise of Emo-Rap and asking does the new school of emotionally vulnerable MCs threaten traditional views of black masculinity? In topic 2 the Snobs present Exhibit A (Mary’s “My Life”) and Exhibit B (Meshell’s “Bitter”) in the case of "Which Is the Perfect Breakup Album?" And if you’ve ever caught yourself wondering What If Whitney hadn’t married Bobby?…you’ll love what the crew has to say about it. And finally, what’s the GOAT slow jam? Turn off the lights and find out.
They say home is where the hate is, my dome is where fate is/
I stroll where souls get lost like Vegas/
Seen through the eyes of rebel glasses/
Pray to G0d that my arms reach the masses/
The young smoke grass in grassless jungles/
Rubber band together in cashless bundles/
We wear strugglin’ chains, divided, only hustle remains/
Makin’ sense of it, we hustle for change/
Revolution ain’t a game, it’s another name… for ‘life fightin’/
Someone to stay in they corner like Mike Tyson/
Heights fightin’ for hits to heighten they hell/
Don’t he know he could only get as high as he fell?/
Show money becomes bail, relationships become jail/
Children are unheld/
I wish love was for sale, Behold the Pale - Horse
Got me trapped like R. Kel, I bail/
Might not be such a bad idea if I never went home again.
