The Weeknd absolutely STORMED into 2022 with “Dawn FM” and the guys disassemble each piece of the album to examine it further!

“Big Bad Wolfie” | The Wolf of Wall Street (Box Office) | Episode 87
Corruption. Greed. Excess. Sin.

The guys missed this incredible cinematic landmark and have Uno-reversed time to visit this crazy movie and give thoughts on it. This episode isn’t a deep dive into the plot, but more so a recount of the memorable moments and scenes, and oh boy were there plenty to pick from! The guys also talk about watching shows and listening to music from the perspective of a critic and how that can possibly hinder the entertainment, and how the guys did a bit of snorting of their own back in their heyday. Be careful with those erasers, kids!

"Familial Tethers" | Variety Box | Episode 86
“Family Ties” by Baby Keem & Kendrick Lamar has come through like a hurricane and the guys unpack their thoughts on the new song. Is DAMN. a classic album? David & Trev attempt to answer that question alongside naming the certified classic hip-hop albums of the last 10 years. Kanye is also attempting to change his name to just “Ye”, and DONDA is nowhere to be found (this has aged poorly as it is now on streaming platforms!). They end things with talk of the new Call of Duty: Vanguard Championship Hill alpha from this past weekend and how things look for the new game.

How did you enjoy the album? Do you feel like it lived up to the hype? Will it be a Grammy-generating machine like her previous album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Time will most certainly tell!
