Baller Alert Radio: “The Culture Deserves It,” featuring your lifestyle specialist Kenny Burns, with Ferrari Simmons and Su Solo, kicked off its 19th episode with a recap of the hottest topics and current events from the previous week. This week, the hosts kicked off the first episode of 2018 with “Married to Medicine’”s Quad.
In case you missed it, the hosts discussed H&M’s controversial campaign. Over the weekend, a photo surfaced of a little black boy, modeling a shirt that read, “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle.” At first glance, many were disgusted with the company’s decision to dress a black child in a monkey sweatshirt, however, after further investigation; things took a turn for the worse once additional photos surfaced. Two white children were also featured in the campaign, but neither wore the monkey sweatshirt. One was dressed in a sweatshirt with animal print, while the other wore a sweatshirt that said “survival expert,” which prompted widespread backlash and criticism. As a result, the company pulled the sweatshirt and apologized, but not before consumers promised to ban the website. The Weeknd even severed business ties with the company over the controversy, which put extra pressure on Nicki Minaj to respond. However, she has not.
The hosts then discussed Trump’s decision to attend the College Football national championship, which prompted Quad to remind hosts about Georgia’s political history. As the episode continued, Quad divulged about her hit show, “Married To Medicine,” where she discussed her relationship with her husband, trust and the longevity of the show. She also went on to dish on her new cookbook, where she also shares a few special gems to spice up your love life through the kitchen.
As the episode continued, Simmons jumped right into Baller Mail, where a listener asked if the bills should be split three ways after a roommate’s boyfriend moves in. What do you think? As for Quad, she believes they most definitely should be split in three. “There is no reason why this woman is getting pimped via another woman,” she said.
In the following segment, Su Solo shared this week’s Comment Creepin’, where Stevie J set the record straight about his illustrious career after the ‘90s. Stevie let it be known that he produced all of the songs on Diddy’s “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down,” but when a fan said his career went nowhere from there, he made sure to let the fan know that his reality television career has been very successful. In an effort to properly set the record straight though, Stevie took it back and used a Lil Kim line to tell it like it is.
As the episode wrapped, Kenfucious said, “you don’t have to tell nobody that you poppin, if you poppin.” MESSAGE!
