Another week, another episode, and another guest! This week, we have total package entertainer, Lutfy. He sings. He acts. He can't twerk, though. He was also threatened by Urban Laughter multiple times to have his mic cut off. He was out of control and we loved it. The conversation was flowing as we talked about Black Magic (Jonathan Jackson, co-founder of Blavity), the over-reliance of people on celebrities as it relates to philanthropy, and how we can try to cope with anxiety as we deal with Ms. Cuh'Rona Thompson.In Rude Talk, we play an extreme game of Would You Rather.

60: Let's Edit This Part Out featuring Carlos from CarlosCooking.com
Sugar...Spice...Some dust...And everything nice...We sound like we can whip something up, don't we? Well, even if we can't, our co-host for the week can. This week, we have Carlos from the food blog, CarlosCooking.com, with us. We may have said it before, but this week, we can confidently say that this is probably one of the best episodes we have done. Our Black Magic Woman is Angela Benton, a major pioneer in technology, and Living While Black centers on the adverse effects that Covid-19 is having on black people in this country. A large percentage of black people work in essential positions and are exposing themselves at ridiculous levels to Covid-19 exposure, but must work because of the financial consequences that could be brought upon them and their families if they don't.Rude Talk is all about relationships and very unique relationship situations. As you're listening to the situations, ask yourself "Would you end the relationship?"For all things Carlos Cooking, check out the information below:Website: https://carloscooking.comInstagram: CarlosIsCookingFacebook: CarlosCooksTwitter: @carloscooking__

Y'all hear that? Oo, I know y'all hear it. Those are the sweet sounds of Rod P.'s "Freaklanta" comin' out your speakers! Musician and rapper, Rod P., is our special guest this week. Don't think because we have a guest that we didn't give you our good ole segments, Black Magic Woman (Taryn Finley) and Living While Black (C'mon, Black people have gone through so much that there's no way that we haven't been prepared for the corona virus).Rod P. drops off his hot track "All Night" from his EP Freaklanta and we dive into what brought about the album and how he's different from other artists that are out today. It wouldn't be us if we didn't ask some off the books type questions, too. He also joined us for Rude Talk, where we talked about work husbands/wives, the difference in relationships of today compared to the ones that our grandparents had, and settling (is it ever okay to settle?).

Some people handle boundaries by setting them. Urban Laughter creates boundaries with deezz hands. How do you create boundaries and handle those that don't respect your boundaries?In Black Magic, we talk about Shabria who spoke amazing life into a four year old who thought she was ugly and our unsung hero, Nia Long. Living While Black is laced with all kinds of mayhem and foolishness as we talk about cops arresting another child, Olive Garden actually complying with a request to only have a white waitress, and how a lot of black record label execs are taking advantage of black women in the music industry.We dive face first into boundaries, a situationship where there's a lack of trust, and why y'all keep insisting on inviting people to our virtual cookout for doing basic ish.

Anyway, in Black Magic, we talk about Jordan Peele and Nia DaCosta as they have recently released the trailer to Candyman and Nia Dennis who has wowed the world with her Beyonce inspired floor routine. In Living While Black, we go over recent reports on gentrification in metro areas, the neo confederate group that had a convention on the last day of Black History Month (the unmitigated gaul and audacity) and the backlash that Beatrice Dixon has gotten from the melanin challenged for speaking on the need for young black girls to see a successful black woman.How much of your past should your partner know? That's what we are talking about in Rude Talk. Do you want to know how many partners they've had? Do you feel like you need to tell them yours? What do you think? We are talkin' the past, music that define us, and an ain't ish roommate that left his former roommate with a 13k past due rent bill!
