Logic on Sample Clearance Politics, Drake & Megan Thee Stallion, New Migos LP? | Everyday Struggle

  • Published: 08 May 2019
  • On the Wednesday May 8th, episode of #EverydayStruggle, DJ Akademiks, Nadeska and Wayno discuss Logic venting about sample clearance issues while working on his upcoming album 'Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,' and how this usually affects other artists who try to sample classic records. The crew also debates whether or not Kyle is 'On the Clock' to drop new music, if a song can still be a considered a hit even if it doesn't actually do well on music charts, Meek Mill losing a $450k paycheck because his judge wouldn't grant approval on time, speculation about a Drake and Megan Thee Stallion collaboration, Chris Brown's new collaboration with Drizzy, plus the Migos teasing a new album.

    Always thought James Brown was hip hop him conducting his band to hit horns like a snare is what a hip hop producer would do.
    The unconventional way of singing was basically rapping.

          Oh, can someone please come up with a chart to compete against Billboard....I don't trust those people....they put Thriller at number 2 in the category of the best album of all time....I really didn't get their methodology there because Thriller sold more, had more number one and top 10 hits and stayed longer on the albums charts Compared to Adele's 21....
