For the October episode of “In the News with Douglas Century,” Doug and I discuss Coolio and Kanye West. And in our conversation about those two main subjects, we touch on the diversity of 90’s hip-hop and some underappreciated artists in the era. We also delve a bit into the history of anti-Semitism in rap and the harmful effects of such attitudes.
*Editor’s Note: I state in the interview that Gap made Ye a billionaire. That is incorrect. Per a recent Drink Champs interview, it was clarified that his Adidas deal put him over that milestone. I had that statistic confused with the one about how his Gap line reportedly made $1 billion in sales in the first year.
