Caramanica breaks down the music on the podcast to a fine powder. His criticism leaves fans desiring to listen to whatever subject he and his round table place on the table to discuss. This podcast is beautifully produced as segments will add snippets of the music up for discussion. In the latest episode, Caramanica brings in Pitchfork’s Alphonse Pierre to discuss how melody has continued to reshape hip-hop via the work of Polo G, Rod Wave, Lil Tjay, and more rising artists.
Melody rap has helped redefined the way artists can express themselves in hip hop. Caramanica and Pierre give an insightful conversation of the ever-changing world that is music and how even gospel music has impacted the rise of southern melodic rap. These rising stars are shifting the line of what it means to be a rapper in 2021, and how their residence in the game now is shifting the narrative in the pop world as well.
This podcast will make every music fan smarter by the level of detail Caramanica goes into on how the quality of the music affects everything inside and out of the music industry.
