This episode moves faster than a freight train. We open talking about Kanye West and Kim Kardashians new baby, we move from there to look at how Jay Z has taken mantle over as king of all big business in Hip-Hop. He has truly replaced MC Hammer as he redifines what it means to be a businessman in Hip-Hop. After the viewing of the Maga Carta Holy Grail ad on TV during the NBA Finals, there can simply be no question about his place in the game.
From there we take a look at the 2 Chainz attempted jacking in SF and a deeper look at the history of rappers getting gaffled in The Bay. DJ Quik could have told him how it was in The Bay, but there is a cultural shift in industry business that has cut off mainstream rappers from the communities that buy their music. Lean back and learn something!
From there we take a look at the deeper elements of author Iceberg Slim and ask the question "Can there ever be redeption for a pimp?" His work gave birth to the Blaxploitation films of the 70's, and was the motivation for artists like Ice T, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Jay- Z and Cash Money Record founders Baby and Slim. Was there more to Iceberg than meets the eye? Cash Money Content is currently owns the bulk of Ice Berg Slims work and is selling it to a new generation of young people. How might this affect those hyponotized by the "pimp life"? From there we end with a fantastic interview with CEO of Sgrouples.com Mark Weinstein having a serious talk about privacy and whats really at stake for the American public.
