The Planet, along with Chicago’s own Square-One of B-Side Radio, have joined forces to bring you the week in review in Hip-Hop and current events, along with the occasional special guest and some music to keep you moving through your day
This episode of IllSide Radio takes a look at Lil Kim’s situation and charging for her Black Friday mixtape. We examine not only whether it was a smart move, but why everyone is taking such delight in her “demise.” What is her standing among the great female mainstream rappers and her standing as a pop culture figure?
Was Lil Kim justified in even speaking on Nicky Minaj? Was the lyrical ass beating of “Roman’s Revenge” enough punishment, or should there be more? Who SHOULD be delighting in whatever ails Li Kim? We look at all those things and more.
We then take a a look at the situation with Tru Life and his brother Seven Dirty, who were reportedly offered plea deals for ten and twelve years, respectively. **At the time of the taping of this episode it was reported that they had accepted the plea deals. Planet Ill has since discovered that acceptance to be erroneous.** We look at whether artists in prison have a chance at the music once their service is complete.
We discuss Saigon’s eagerly awaited release The Greatest Story Never Told and its relevance and whether it does what it was intended to do. Was it worth the wait? In addition, Strong Arm Steady’s new release is also broached.
Sit back, Relax and take a ride on the Ill Side.
