Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40. This week Rick heads down to DC to hang out with the Fearless Artist crew as they celebrate a major milestone. Vin talks about the most recent trip to Lounge Studios and how Basel Hayden & Uncle Nearest brought the guys to the great abyss. L.O. finishes the check-in with a cautionary tale of how a late-night moment on the lips can lead to a morning of irritable bowels and regret.
Next, the guys discuss the confirmation hearings of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. The avalanche of disrespect she received as the first Black woman nominee, who, by all accounts, is one of the most qualified nominees in the history of the court, was disgusting.
Next, we check in on the bizarre story where a hip hop pioneer, Kidd Creole, of Grand Master Flash & the Furious 5 is facing murder charges in New York City. NOTE: This episode was recorded before the verdict of guilt was handed down on Wednesday, April 6, 2022. We pray that this miscarriage of justice is reversed expeditiously.
Finally, the guys give their thoughts on the possibility of Colin Kaepernick returning to the NFL and what impact it might have on the culture, race relations, and the League’s legal exposure.
You’ll hear all of this and so much more on this episode of Decoding40.
