58- What’s The Price of Fame?
DJ Craftmatic & Paulie Dubz discuss the price of fame as up & coming rappers and established veterans are coming under fire at alarming rate (with 4 shootings targetting rappers in the past month alone). Is social media to blame? Is it pressure to live up to an image? Is it hate? The boys get into the D'Angelo documentary "Devil's Pie", which addresses the pressure of being the chosen one in music which leads to D'Angelo's 14 year absence from the music game. What makes artists at the top of their game like D'Angelo, Lauryn Hill, Dave Chappelle step away from it all...including tens of millions of dollars? Is the game worth the cost? Track of the week: "Yesterday" - Loyle Carner produced by Madlib TakeTheAntidote.com
