Tunezzup! - Race, Marginalization, Nuance, NJ Artists, Drake's Negative Impact, Microplastics and Much More

This is a once-in-4-years podcast. Buckle up.  There are artists who primarily focus on the craft, then there are artists who stand for and enact social change on top of what they do in the booth. Tunez does not only speak it in the music, but he’s fighting for something bigger than himself each chance he gets, and today only made that clearer.   Tunezzup! is a rapper, songwriter, and producer from Newark, New Jersey. His undeniable bars leave you running back each track attempting to analyze the underlying message. His cadence is dialed-in, refined, and consistent on each record.  Follow Tunez - https://www.instagram.com/tunezzup/ Stream Bare Witness (New) - https://open.spotify.com/album/6EaiqGvO6jkOe33xt8beWK?si=1oP_VbH6SVS-k4_85D-d2g Please enjoy this wide-ranging conversation and use the timestamps below to navigate.  (1:46) - The effects of being raised by women, fatherlessness, and mom love vs dad love.  (13:37)- The death of nuance and lack of leadership in New Jersey.

Lupe Dragon vs the next big thing.  (39:06) - It’s not about being great anymore. The label bait and switch. If Kanye wasn’t good. And why we have to hate the game, not the player?  (43:56) - Alessia Cara is our celebrity crush and why she was successful. Pop doesn’t have a problem, hiphop does. And the real reason Juice WRLD rapped about drugs and why Tunez producer can’t leave Russia.  (50:54) -  Why Tunez got shadowbanned on IG, the real reason the FBI showed up at Samad’s door, and are people actually watching me?  (53:46) - The bigger picture of Tunez Instagram ban.  (01:00:46) - What made Tupac money ended up getting him killed, if Elvis ripped off Ellie May Thorton, and sampling.  (01:03:10) - Drake's negative impact on culture and the system that made it possible.  (01:10:15) - It’s about the business, not the art.

Bobby Doc - Dissing Our Diss Tracks, Opening for Juice WRLD, Country Rap and B.Y.O. Sound Board

We have a lot of rappers on the show, but after talking with 50+, I’ve found that most artists are even more dynamic than their art. Today I sat down with Bobby Doc, who is pursuing a career in music in an attempts to change the game for those that come after him; and that’s only one of his goals.  Hiphop is competitive. At times it’s detrimental to the artist, and at others, it’s the reason they succeed.

Aarvee - Why Dads Pick Fights, Solicited Dick Pics, 2 Uber Cigs, the Tinder Swindler, and Why Gary Vee Likes Drug Dealers

Aarvee is an artist, songwriter, and producer originally from New Jersey. His precise, hand-crafted hard-hitting bars have transitioned into effortless hooks with undertones of a deeper meaning on each track. His newest song, “morefiend” brings a smooth, guitar-laden backtrack that fits perfectly with his wide backing vocals on the hook. Artists are dynamic. Most podcasters won't take the chance on them because they're 'unpredictable', but that's an excuse to mask the fact that they can't match their energy. Today was unpredictable in the best way possible. From Qanon to drunks fights, to tinder horror stories to the best drunk cigs, you name it, we got into it today.  https://songwhip.com/aarvee-3/morefiend (Stream ‘morefeiend’) Thank you for helping us become a top 10% podcast in the world!
