Diggin' in the (Goodie) Grab Bag

Is Drake stealing Southern sauce? Did Nelly cross the line? What if Ceelo never sang again? This week we address these and other burning questions as we revisit some segments of past episodes that kept our heads spinning, plus answer some fan questions from social media!

We start it off by touching on our “Sounds of Multiple Souths” episode and address Drake’s connection to Southern Hip-Hop and how that reflects in his music…and his beard (just as important). We also highlight a segment from our strip club episode (“Strip du Soleil: Make It Reign”) that was left out: Nelly and the “Tip Drill” controversy. To add to this, our “Black Ole Opry” episode was all about Lil Nas X, so it was only right to revisit the year he’s had and touch on a few new points.

Lastly, our #askBOTM Q&A had us pondering Southern Supergroups, Ceelo, and a few topics for the future!
