The Baller Alert Show, featuring your lifestyle specialist Kenny Burns, with Ferrari Simmons and Su Solo, kicked off its 84th episode with a recap of the hottest topics and current events from the previous week.
In case you missed it, the hosts opened up about the most recent episode of “Power,” which showed the aftermath of Lakeisha’s death. Without sharing too many details, Burns commended Omari Hardwick’s acting skills, which were highlighted by an aggressive scene with Naturi Naughton, who plays his wife, Tasha.
As the segment continued, the hosts unpacked Kanye West’s new album, “Jesus Is King,” and discussed the rapper’s controversial press run, in which he claimed black people are culture-less and thanked God for his multimillion-dollar tax break. However, he also proclaimed to be the biggest artist ever in the history of the world, and while most would disagree, Burns said he “almost” agreed.
“When you look at somebody’s contribution, you look at how it affects the world,” Burns said. “Kanye has become an artist in culture, not just in music, but in fashion, but in business and tech.”
“If you look at the artistry, it’s unmatched,” he continued, as he highlighted the rapper’s newfound faith. “The problem I have is going back to the old ‘Ye,” he said, citing the rapper’s comments about Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton campaign, in which he said, “It shoulda been me.” “I think true leaders champion, and I’m thinking in the thought of Jesus Christ,” he said, adding, “and I think our superhero sometimes, a lot of times, don’t do that.”
As the segment continued, the host touched on Tank’s controversial “Lip Service,” interview and more, before jumping into Rari’s Baller Mail.
From there, Su Solo shared this week’s comment creeping, which featured commentary from Joe Budden, in which he praised Omarion for his silence amid his baby mama’s new relationship with his former bandmate, Lil Fizz.
But, before the episode wrapped, Burns shared a few words of wisdom with Kenfucious Says.
