Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G host the inaugural episode of “Comprehensive Beatdown,” a podcast to shine light on new music. In this week’s episode, the guys break down “B4.DA.$$” from Joey Bada$$. A track from the new Aphex Twin EP is discussed as well as “Blacker the Berry,” Kendrick Lamar’s most recent single release. “Comprehensive Beatdown” introduces its segment entitled “Shitty Songs From our Friends,” where a horrible song is selected by a local Jackson artist, musician, or business owner, and submitted to the podcast for review. DJ Young Venom submitted something called “Honey Dip” and the guys listen to it for the first time on the podcast. The episode is wrapped up with a look at a song from Jackson hip hop artist Dolla Black. Thanks for tuning in.
