In today’s episode:

00:00 Intro shenanigans

Maybe one day we’ll start getting these out on time

02:00 Da Vinci’s issues with Vince Staples’ Summer 06

The point that I was trying to make here is that everyone’s definition of what makes a great emcee is different. There’s no such thing as absolute wrong or right here. So we can talk all day about what we as fans want from an artist, but at the end of the day, our opinion matters way less than his/hers. Artists should strive for their own visions of greatness, not mine or anyone else’s.
