Is Quality Control Music the Next Rap Dynasty?
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 fifth episode of XXL’s Hip-Hop Moments of Clarity podcast, the crew speaks on Bow Wow and Trippie Redd's pseudo beef, predictions about Cardi B's debut album Invasion of Privacy, Smokepurpp's declaration that Lil Yachty is one of the best rappers out, and DMX's recent incarceration for tax evasion—and pays homage with a sing-along of "We Right Here." Additionally, they discuss the half-decade longevity of Migos' run and ask whether Quality Control Music's acquisition of Cardi B under a management deal makes QC rap's next great dynasty.
