148 minutes | Jan 21, 2022
Episode 34 | “Dream Guy”
Mal starts this episode off with vulnerability, and this leads into a discussion of television and objectifying women, which somehow leads Mal and Rory to contemplate how the first pregnant woman and murderer handled their discoveries. Rory insists that we are all participating in a simulation video game and that Elon Musk is winning. Mal (still) doesn’t feel right about having a female Uber driver, and Rory gets into his memories of (failed) parallel parking his way out of some womens lives before. The guys discuss how social media is affecting their lives, and how the bags that people get from TikTok have them thinking of shaking a** for the app. Karl shows us just how sick he really is with a dance demonstration, and as always we accidentally kill off another beloved star. They also give their opinions on best 90’s sitcoms, thorny engagement rings, white guilt becoming illegal, + more!

Hope you guys enjoyed the three day weekend! Rory starts the pod off with a necessary apology to his Black co-workers, and they cover their weekends. The guys apologize for last week’s mishap with the re-upload, and ask the listeners if they did their homework and figured out the Belly Movie Mystery… which somehow leads to Mal letting us in on his body hair preferences. They cover the new Kanye x The Game track ‘Eazy’, and discuss Kanye being more on the scene after his breakup, as well as his incident with paparazzi, and how they appreciate seeing him more.

Episode 31 | "Zoovie"
The guys start off debating whether The Carter 3 is a classic or not … no literally, this is the first sentence, so prepare for a music deep dive. Mal insists Wayne has no classic albums, and Rory and Demaris, as always, disagree with him, and ask him to give an example of a classic album to him, and he insists most “classics” are overhyped. This leads into a conversation about The Weeknd’s Dawn FX release, where the guys try to decipher what kind of woman and situation inspired this album (11:44). They comment on Timbaland’s ‘Thriller’ comparison, and then segue into a conversation about Gunna’s new album, and if he’s a better artist than Lil Baby (36:42). Gunna has all the kids saying “P”… so of course we had to figure out what that meant, and got into some emotional rapper discussions, including a ‘Deuces (Remix)’ breakdown (43:22). Of course we had to battle it out and debate who would win the Jaheim Vs. Usher Verzuz, as well as debate who could actually beat Usher (1:06:27). We also get into some sad sh*t (RIP Bob Saget), some bullsh*t (Did you too have a fake G-Shock?) + more!

Bow Wow comes in and joins JD in telling the behind the scenes story of breaking his career, as well as elevating So So Def. JD (and of course Bow Wow himself) start giving Bow Wow his flowers for his career (1:11:06), and this leads into a discussion of what the blogs have against him that they won’t cover his current successes. This also activates JD’s urge to get his shit off, who doubles down on his challenge to Puff Daddy for a Verzuz, and explains why he feels underrated (1:24:16).
