Is Meek Mill’s Release From Prison a Turning Point in His Career?
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 latest episode of XXL’s Hip-Hop Moments of Clarity podcast, the crew speaks on J. Cole's new album KOD—its sound, mission and execution—and Meek Mill coming home from prison and how his unjust incarceration might impact his legacy. But like everyone else this week, the focus of episode eight is Kanye West, whose Twitter account helped him to dominate news feeds, as he doubled down on his support of President Donald Trump, alienating longtime fans in the process. Is it all an elaborate troll? Is this a setup for Kanye's own run for the Oval Office in 2024? If he runs, does he have a legit shot?
