The Influenced or Imitating Episode

June 29, 2016

G.O.O.D Music's newest signee Designer might be the most polarizing figure in hip-hop right now. Either you love his high energy single "Panda" or yo've written him off as a Future biting one hit wonder. Either way it's a smoking hot topic of when does influence turn into flat out copying. Spike Lou and Animal Brown break down a history of rappers who sounded like already established artists and what's the real issue behind the Future/Desiigner controversy. Also, is Kanye's new video wack or crack, is Gucci Mane dropping an album too soon, and do we believe Lil Wayne actually punched a security guard?
