#TheStoop: The 20th Anniversary of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

Today on the Season 3 premiere of #TheStoop: A Mini-Podcast Summer Series, we take you back to the musical Golden Era of 90’s music, and celebrate one of the Greatest albums of the decade. Twenty years ago tomorrow (August 25, 1998), Lauryn Hill released her one and only iconic album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”. The album not only broke barriers for women in Hip Hop, but Lauryn went on to win 5 Grammys (Including Best Album), selling over 19 million albums worldwide, which sent her further into superstardom (for better and for worse).

Today we welcome Dennis Barham (formerly host of Rapsolute Programme on iLive Radio, Actor) as we discuss our Top 5 songs from the album, the impact the album had on the culture, how we view her career post-Miseducation, and a whole lot more.

The Ave Podcast – The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 51: The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

In the spirit of #FlashbackFriday, we take it all the way back to 1988 where we celebrate and pay tribute, to one of the most successful movies in pop-black culture. Thirty years ago today, Paramount Pictures, Eddie Murphy, and Director John Landis released Coming To America, a movie about an African prince from the country of Zamunda (fictional, obviously) who travels to Queens, NY in an attempt to find his Queen. We discuss Eddie Murphy’s genius, his career arc that dominated the 80s, the star-studded cast that was in the movie, the pop-black cultural similarities between ’88 & ’18, our favorite scenes and moments, plus a whole lot more. Oh! What a feeling…..

The Ave Podcast – ‘Ye…This Is America

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 48: ‘Ye…This Is America

Today on The Ave Podcast, I’m joined by Shawn Adonis (past contributor to South Shore Ave) as we discuss the latest events regarding Kanye West. We break down his love for Donald Trump, his recent behaviour, the song “Ye vs The People”, and his outlandish TMZ interview. Somehow, some way, we circle back and tie it in to Childish Gambino’s epic “This Is America” video, showing how it all contrasts and relates to one another. What a week for the culture. Please enjoy…..
