    Rod,
    I know you already listen to a lot of stuff, but this episode was really good. The host Al Letson (does great work with Reveal) shares how he fell short and should have spoken up about his friend’s trifling behavior. His evolved, reflective vibe reminds me of you and Justin. I thought y’all might enjoy it.

  2. What up Rod & J Cosby,

    I’m so glad that they got Bill up out of here. I need that nigga to serve hard time during what little bit of time he has left on this planet.

    I know ya’ll talked about this awhile ago, but I went to my parents’ house and they were jammin to that Tariq Nasheed song. Somebody apparently posted it on my mom’s facebook feed and she went and bought the song. Lol, I didn’t bother telling her about his problematic views, I’ll save that for the upcoming cookouts.

    Quick question did Justin decide to support black women and go see acrimony or did he come up with some beige excuse?

    Keep up the good work, peace.

    What up Rod and J’Hi the prince who would of guessed that Good Music was an army of coons. Glad to see you watching the versace miniseries or as like to call it the Joan the Scammer origin story. Did y’all notice on The champagne papi episode of Atlanta at the start Marcus Miles was on her instagram live and told her to check her DMs. And also on the Woods I knew it was a rap for Al when I saw the corner boy from Moonlight holding that cup. Love the shows and peace!!

    Hello Rod The Rapper and J West,

    A few weeks ago while talking about Atlanta you floated the idea about the characters being the ego, super ego, etc. That didn’t click until last week’s ep when i realized Atlanta is Donald Glover, Think about it, Earn is Donald’sd esire for success but also his tendency to be in his own head, Paper Boi is him wanting to stay “real” and his southern roots. Darius is his weird creative side.

    Looking through that lens I am going back through eps like the end of Sixth Sense where they show you all the clues. When Paper Boi decided to “Sell out” at the end it broke my heart but at the same time it felt like personal growth for the character.

    Let me know what you think of my theory

    Peace.

    Ricardo
