Genasis, Fat Joe, Earthgang, Danny Brown and IDK. Soon after, the crew shares their thoughts on some recent tweets from !llmind and Plies in their ‘Big Facts or B.S.???’ segment. Later in the show, the EDS crew highlights YSL Records artist, Lil Duke in their ‘Heat Check’ segment. To close out the show, the crew shares their thoughts on Tekashi 6ix9ine’s former manager, Shotti being sentenced to 15 years in prison, and also discuss the FCC reportedly requesting and investigating into payola allegations within the record industry.

              People are not big as they seem that including country stars, rock stars. Some of these artists don’t have real fans so yes FCC need to investigate. Payola is going on because social media is very manipulative. Dj have came out and confess to people approaching them about playing songs and that’s a federal indictment off the top right there

                YouTube already cutting down on plays because yes payola is going on. Artists and labels were paying for ads or links so people can come listen to their music so now YouTube cut that out since investigation going on

Plus my figures are probably low for taxes. Point is they get .55 cents on the dollar like the rest of us.
