Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40! We want to send a special thanks to all of the listeners in Baltimore, Maryland who streamed us the most last week. On the Check-In this week, Vin hangs out with an old friend visiting the city and stops by the show’s favorite dive bar Stolen Jackets for drinks and then headed over to The Fearless Artist installation. L.O. gets outside with the family and attends a few cultural events including the Kamasi Washington concert, The Lincoln Center Orchestral Tribute to the Notorious BIG concert, and The Fearless Artist event. And, Alaric talks about the joys and pains of putting together The Fearless Artist event with the dozens of moving parts, artists, and their works.
This week the guys welcome back renaissance man and friend of the show, Kel Spencer. Kel posted a timely and poignant meme on his Instagram that lists a few of the gifts NOT to buy that special guy in your life for Father’s Day. Also, the guys talk about Rolling Stone’s abysmal list of the 200 Greatest Hip Hop Albums of all time. The top 20 albums are a blasphemous arrangement and we hope that Rolling Stone continues to receive all of the hellish backlash it deserves for this list.
The guys also talk about the outrageous and fictional story that swept the internet about a murderous elephant. The elephant had supposedly not only trampled the 70-year-old woman but returned to her funeral service to desecrate her body. They say elephants never forget. What could this woman have done to deserve this kind of retribution?
You’ll hear this and so much more on this latest episode of Decoding40.
