Grammy Mishaps, Common Tough Raps, Thanksgiving Table Scraps On IllSide Radio

We been off for a couple weeks but the crew at IllSide Radio is back to bring you some fire. We look at post Thanksgiving hijinx and the mainstream albums that underwhelmed. We look at Lupe, The Throne, Game, and The Cater IV. When will they be held accountable for not delivering.  Is the hype that leads into these albums partly to blame for expectations that are too high? Did Drake buck the mainstream album trend?

Are the fans to blame for the kind of music that dominates the airwaves? Is Drake giving the fans what they say they want/ only to be rebuffed? What’s with the new tough talking Common. Is he overcompensating  for the wierdness of the Universal  Mind Control album?  Is he coming sideways at Drake? It sounds dope but do you buy it?

Speaking of Drake, is he trying to hightail7l it off Young Money? Could he survive without them? Does he hav ea good reason to leave the label? How interested are we in a Drizzy and Rick Ross album? Is a Maybach move in the future? Does he need Young Money?

The Grammy nominations just dropped and as usual they got it all wrong. Why wasn’t Kanye’s album nominated for album of the year. Was it the only credible entrant for Hip-Hop album of the year?

We look at Torae’s solo debut For The Record and The Planet’s recent interview with him. Should  the older generation move out of the way or should the young guns force their hand? All this and more on IllSide Radio.

So sit back, relax and take a ride on the Ill Side.

  1. Drake don’t need young money.
    Tyga really doesn’t either.
    Young Money reached their hayday round 2008-2009. It’s all fizzling now. I really feel as though Drake only staying out of respect and allegiance.
    Give it a couple more years though, he’ll be on his own. I never thought about it, I can actually see him on Maybach music. That would be hella tight too. BOSS. ha

    1. I don’t think Drake needs anybody, dude has solidified himself a great artist, and truthfully the YM camp doesn’t do much but hold him back from venturing in to other areas. It’s pretty clear that he has other ambitions to move outside of hip hop, maybe like a Andre 3000, but I see him transforming in to a completely different artist come album 3. Appreciate you listening by the way. – SquareOne
