The Yanadameen Godcast convene to once again to discuss events that have transpired over the past week in the world of current affairs, politics, and hip hop.
After sharing that he voted in the midterm elections, Lord Jamar was in the firing line of a lot of criticism from people who accused him of “wasting his time because voting doesn’t change anything” or that “voting won’t bring down white supremacy”. Lord Jamar reponds to these critics.
In music news, 50 Cent and Ja Rule’s ongoing feud was a talking point again as the two fired off another round of insults at each other. Can there ever be peace between the two?
The final topic of today’s show explores the recent news of the Boy Scouts being rebranded as the Scouts. Is this a move to further push the agenda of “gender fluidity” or “gender neutral” politics?
