Episode 029

From 1997 to 2007 singer/songwriter Marsha Ambrosius was one half of Floetry—the London born and Philly based act that charted singles like “Say Yes” and carved out a space for themselves in the increasingly crowded world of alternative soul. But when Marsha went solo she had a choice to make: become the next Jill Scott or follow the mainstream path of Mary J. Blige or Alicia Keys? The Music Snobs debate the pros and cons of Marsha’s decision and the implications it’s had on both her career and the landscape of R&B. Afterwards, the Snobs dive into the deep end of the conspiracy pool and describe what music legend or controversy they want to believe is true, even though they know it’s not.

Episode 028: Michael

In a show fit for a king, The Music Snobs dedicate a very special episode to Michael Jackson. It all starts with a look back at MJ’s roots as Scoop, Isaac, Jehan, and Arthur debate how crucial the Jackson 5 were to Mike’s growth into a solo icon. Next, the Snobs ask What If the still unreleased, Stevie Wonder-produced Jackson 5 album would have dropped in 1975? Things get deep when the crew examines MJ’s place in black man history and wonder if Michael Jackson is the epitome of the black male identity crisis of the 80s. To finish things off, TMS gives ultimate tribute to Mike’s genius in a roundtable discussion about the single characteristic that defined the magic inside the man.
