This week, the ladies of Away With Words The Podcast have the honor of kicking it with Chicago’s very own emcee, Emone Quadeem. He just dropped an album entitled “True to My Name” and still made time to drink whiskey and talk shit on a Monday night. Throughout his time, the west side native talked about his growth through being a parent and how he lets that translate in his music without failing to give the people what they want. He also talked about his writing process and why his latest project is his most vulnerable to date. If you haven’t checked out his project (now available on Apple Music/iTunes, Spotify, and anywhere else you hear tunes), do yourself a favor!
After a quick piece of homage to the late Dick Gregory and a check in, we get into the Discovery Zone for some gossip. We all agree that Jesse Williams being court ordered to not introduce his children to women he dates until it’s been at least 6 months is totally fair. We’re all boycotting the NFL, and have mixed feelings about the idea of an open marriage (shoutout to Insecure).
For the pettier things in life, the Petty Parlor blessed us with plenty of bullshit. Mystikal is apparently a raper (yes, raper), and are we surprised? Go listen to the uncut version of Shake Ya Ass. Chris Brown needs to just go to therapy, that’s it. Y’all’s president is an idiot and we hope the eclipse burned his retinas.
In Knock it the Fuck Off, Bri Stories wants POC to scale back our anger a bit to teach white people who truly wanna be taught (I know we’re all sick of having to teach them, but it’s better than recycling anger). Ironically, two lil white hoes also landed themselves in KITFO for truly needing to be taught (if not get that ass tapped). Don’t play with HU.
Shout out to Nessa (Colin Kaepernick’s Woman) for sticking up for her Man. Praises due. Shoutout to Chance the Rapper for making the Forbes 40 Under 40 list, we’re saying yes to this! This is Life as a Catalogue, people!
We want to thank EQ for coming through and getting lit! He was super knowledgable, dope, and fun to talk to. Looking forward to hearing so much more from him in the future!
