The crew then takes a deep dive into Kid Cudi’s debut album ‘Man on the Moon: The End of Day,’ and discuss the LP’s impact and how it helped shift the sound of rap after its release. Afterwards, the EDS trio share their thoughts on YesJulz’s recent tweet where she compared EarthGang to legendary duo Outkast.

Its a fuckin trophy, cant take it wit you when you dead, its based on others OPINIONS. People always trying to act like the grammys the best shit ever, somethin a white person created to try and make you feel good for being the best.. fuck that shit💯

I validate Nicki's reasoning for being upset and "bitter" because Cardi makes the same damn type of music as Nicki.. she acts no different than Nicki.. then she gets a a BIG grammy WIN in such a short time,, WHILE NICKI STILL HASNT FOR ANYTHING. The only difference is Cardi's voice and culture influence in her music being latina and Nicki isn't.
