Episode 027

For the seminally smooth band Sade, the combination of impenetrable cool and mainstream dominance is a daily operation. The Music Snobs wonder: How has this ultra-lowkey singer and group sold 60 million records while remaining so beautifully enigmatic? Next up, in a segment dedicated to a legend, Jehan, Arthur, Scoop, and Isaac ask What If Frankie Knuckles had never moved to Chicago? And for the hoop fan in you, the Snobs take a look at the marriage, and quiet divorce, of the NBA and hip-hop. Finally, during a painful Roundtable, the crew spill some liquor for the loss of their most treasured pieces of music.

Episode 026

Are the Roots still legendary? The Music Snobs and guest-Snob Nicholas Payton take time out to examine the late night tenure of Hip-Hop’s favorite band and wonder out loud if Questlove and crew have overstayed—and maybe even begun to fade. Then TMS gets technological by asking: What If the iPod had never been invented? Next, the Snobs + Nic anoint Donald Byrd the godfather of ’soul jazz’… almost. Lastly, a new TMS round table gives each Snob a chance to build the ultimate emcee by plucking individual skills from legends—and creating an icon.
