Genasis, Fat Joe, Earthgang, Danny Brown and IDK. Soon after, the crew shares their thoughts on some recent tweets from !llmind and Plies in their ‘Big Facts or B.S.???’ segment. Later in the show, the EDS crew highlights YSL Records artist, Lil Duke in their ‘Heat Check’ segment. To close out the show, the crew shares their thoughts on Tekashi 6ix9ine’s former manager, Shotti being sentenced to 15 years in prison, and also discuss the FCC reportedly requesting and investigating into payola allegations within the record industry.

                                AK calling something cheesy or forced but most of the music he likes has one sound and formula lmao. He has to be the worst at actually reviewing music because he doesn't actually try to get into it.... Wayne is spot on and fair tho.

                                                  What rappers forget is that when they get a $100,000 check let's just say , the government gonna get at least damn near half so let's say now its 65k now the agent get 15% ... or so $55250 now, but they spending $100,000 cuz they know they got that check . Plus my figures are probably low for taxes. Point is they get .55 cents on the dollar like the rest of us.

I wouldn't watch, more than half the music these dude listen too isn't globally. Do not bump in cars or clubs or even on pop radio. Earth green team, do not even know if that was right, never heard of them until today.
