New R&B Podcast [August 5/12]: “OVO Fest Review + Soca Edition”

Sorry to delay the podcast by one day, but yesterday I went to Drake’s OVO Fest concert and I wanted to put a review up while it was still fresh. Also on this week’s podcast we feature the new Drake/Aaliyah song, talk about Usain Bolt, Gabby Douglas’ $90 Mil & also how a woman can tell when a man is no longer interested in her.

So, what do y’all think about the Drake/Aaliyah song? Hot Or Hot Garbage?

I know I slaughtered all the soca singers names and the titles of their songs, but I tried dammit.

Do you think its acceptable for Christians to play Mas?

    Nice podcast today Lincoln. I always expected Bolt to win but it was funny how I only saw the "true fans" AFTER he won update their BBs and so forth. There is a verse in Revelations that basically separates God from revelling so that's probably where they look at that from. I think Christians are free to their opinions and that includes both pro and anti Mas ones and until my relationship with the Great Spirit is stronger I will leave it at that.

    I'm not a Drake fan but he's what's hot now so use him and those multimillionaires egos are way bigger than ours "down here" so a conflict will always happen in the case you described. The song is okay to me.

    I'm not talking about Gabby

    Yes ya have ta come home and enjoy the festivities next year man. The soca podcast was nice

    Okay. Although I don't advertise this I actually work in my church. I lead a group of youth weekly in empowerment, esteem,etc. I can only speak for myself. I am apart of a ministry where we understand that you live in a very real world. So I (or my pastor) do not pretend that life doesn't happen. We encourage the kids to make good choices for them. If you have a destructive streak and certain behaviors are a byproduct of your atmosphere then …Yes. We say avoid those situations. That is all. As much as I love your point of view on almost everything I think that you might be pigeon-holing the pigeon-hole. Not all church's are the same. But this is a very long discussion. So that is all I'll say about the subject except… Like the whole "Chik-fil-a issue". Freedom of speech is just that. Whether I think your right, wrong, confused or just an idiot. PC or not. I have the right to speak my mind.

    High-larious take on 2Chainz :-) When i found out his age, i was beyond disbelief. The same thing for Nicki Minaj. I just couldn't believe it.

    I went to a Drake concert here in the DMV. 2Chainz, Future, and J Cole were featured while Drake was the main performer. You couldn't understand a word of what 2Chainz or Future were saying but J Cole and Drake did a good job at enunciating their words. Drake put on a really good show and I had a blast.

    Nice podcast.

    I wouldn't say Drake is the most talented. I would say he is the most current. I listened to the Aaliyah song and I would say 7/10 because the 40 beat sounds redundant. I felt I was listening to successful, the calm, club paradise all over again.

    I disagree with the drake Aaliyah argument. eminem was also the hotest out at the time and he RUINED Tupac's posthumous album. No one can picture Pac working with Em its not organic it was an obvious move to sell the most amount of units and because that was so plain to see it wasn't well received by the fans.

    Remember Drakes fans arent necessarily Aaliyah fans. But Aaliyah fans are Missy and Tim fans and also long for that nostalgia. Also how can Drake Executive produce? He's not a producer and it can't write songs for Aaliyah to sing like he did for A Keys because she's dead. So what touch can he add other than rapping or monotone singing over a 40 back drop? Correct me if I'm wrong but Drake didn't executive produce his own albums so how did he earn this opportunity? It would be ok if aaliyah could sign his lyrics and be in the studio feeding off each other but posthumous doesn't allow for much drake to touch.
