On this week’s edition of Scottscope, the roundtable does its first annual post Labor Day summer recap! We’ll be discussing the very best in movies and Hip-Hop, as well as the very worst. Triumphs will be celebrated. Failures will be mourned and admonished in equal measure. Both the winners and the losers will be given their just do. What was the best superhero movie? What was the best action film? Who had the better album, Rick Ross or Nas? We’ll give listeners the complete rundown of the past three months.
We’ll also be taking a look at the life and legacy of legendary music industry executive Chris Lighty, as well as the dubious circumstances surrounding his death. How will it impact the rap industry? How should he be remembered? Just what were his contributions to the rap game? What pressures did he face as a record executive? Could his business dealings have played a role in his demise? We discuss.
The summer may have come to a close, but our mission continues. Scottscope will continue to probe the farthest reaches of popular culture, boldly going where no podcaster (or blogger) has gone before!
