On this edition, we begin with James Shields and what his late signing means (if anything) for the San Diego Padres' chances this coming season. The Friars have made a number of seemingly bold moves, so why does it still seem like they are flying blind? We'll discuss. After that, we move on to our second division preview. This time it's the American League East. The East hasn't entirely lost the mystique that they are the big, bad, rich teams who can always compete. Even going into a season where all five clubs look as shaky as ever, that description might be apt. We round out the episode by talking about the best leadoff hitters in the game today... But not before Will Templin officially expresses his love for his favorite leadoff hitter of all time.
Audiomack is proud to present the Drill Symphony with Chief Keef. Always moving music forward, the Drill Symphony was filmed at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California. With an enchanting ensemble - Summer Swee-Singh on piano, Camille Miller and Yasmeen Al-Mazeedi on violin, Tim Richardson on viola, Eru Matsumoto on cello, and Jon Brick on drums - recording by Jaime Sickora, mixed/arranged/composed by John Cleary, and the whole process shot out by Erikson Corniel, Chief Keef's classics are given new life.
On this episode of the Sum'n To Say podcast we are joined by the incomparable DJ Wally Sparks to talk about his roots here in Atlanta and his epic R&B party The Groove. Wally also opines about the nature of "fickle" music fans. Is NYC still the mecca of hip-hop? Can meccas move? We dive into that topic as well. Also, Soulja Boy is a political activist (not really, but kinda?)
