What’s Ray J Going to Do With Death Row Records?
It's Friday, so you know what that means? Another episode of XXL's Hip-Hop Moments of Clarity, a podcast dedicated to breaking down the trending topics in hip-hop news.
For today's episode (Oct. 25), this week's hosts—XXL's Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten, XXL's Executive Editor John Kennedy (a.k.a. JFK) and hip-hop entrepreneur Rahman Dukes—speculate on Ray J's plans for Death Row Records, now that he's taken the label's reins from Suge Knight. Outlets originally reported that Suge had handed over his life rights to Ray J, yet the 54-year-old clarified that the singer is primarily working on the music aspect of Suge's current business while he's still incarcerated.
Other subject matter includes the ongoing feud between Gucci Mane and The Breakfast Club hosts Angela Yee and DJ Envy, which came to a head after the rapper had some harsh words for them during an interview with their co-host, Charlamagne Tha God. Other topics in this week's podcast include Juice Wrld's $15 million dollar suit from pop-punk band Yellowcard, T-Pain canceling his tour due to low ticket sales, Lil Nas X going diamond and YoungBoy Never Broke Again debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
