What’s Beef?

Giggle Gang!!! Ya girl is back with another dope episode of FSGPodcast! I know I’ve been outchea living my best life, but I’m here and I miss y’all! So let’s get to it! This week I get into the following: Hurricane Florence is reaking havoc across the Carolinas. The passing of Mac Miller took us all by surprise- RIP Mac. Andrew Gillum is “Bringing it Home” in Florida and I’m all the way here for it! Nike decided to position itself on the right side of history (s/o to Collin Kaepernick). Made In America…it was dope, but I really dont have to go back to that festival ever again. LOL. Aretha Franklin’s funeral was the longest funeral in history. Folks tried to play Geoffrey Owens and he ended up winning. BET debuted the Bobby Brown Story and it was just that…the his story. What’s Beef? Nicki, Cardi, Drake, Meek, Eminem, and MGK can tell you. And the US Open is trash…Serena and Naomi are champions!

Level Up-A Conversation w/ Mona Scott Young

#GiggleGang!! Forget all the other shit, Mona Scott Young is on the show this week!!! Yes, Mona. Scott. Young. The juggernaut behind VH1’s smash series, Love and Hip-Hop! Before I get into all of Mona’s business, we get around the water cooler to discuss the greatness that is Serena Williams, Beyonce and Balmain giving back to HBCU’s, the traitor that is Trump, and Stevie J and Faith’s real love and hiphop story.

Then Mona takes us down memory lane by sharing her story of how she got into the entertainment industry, the glory years of Violator and Def Jam records, how she met and started managing Missy Elliott, the creation of Love and HipHop, and her latest venture- the release of her new book, Blurred Lines.
