Will Jeezy Really Retire From Music After His ‘Thug Motivation 104′ Album?
Hip-hop continues to be America's biggest music genre, dominating pop culture and the entertainment news feed. Last week was no different, as some of hip-hop’s most notable names made headlines—some for the wrong reasons. Regardless, any news involving hip-hop's most intriguing figures is certain to get clicks on XXL's site, but instead of clicks, XXL is taking news to the podcast game with Hip-Hop Moments of Clarity.
Starring XXL Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten, Executive Editor John Kennedy (a.k.a JFK) and Associate Editor Roger Krastz, Hip-Hop Moments of Clarity finds the staff joined by Triangle Offense Management founder Wayne “Wayno” Clark in 60-minute episodes. Touching base on all things rap, the podcast provides a more opinionated and in-depth look at the topics covered by the XXL site.
In the fourth episode of XXL’s Hip-Hop Moments of Clarity podcast, the crew addresses Jeezy announcing his retirement after his next album, Drake and Travis Scott taking over Fortnite for one night, Jacquees' rough brush with police, the excellence of XXXTentacion's ? album (and whether his career can parallel that of Tyler, the Creator) and nominations for XXL's 2018 Freshman class—just days before the week-long 10th Spot fan voting process begins (March 26!).
