Make it Make Sense Monday!
On Mondays we try to Make it Make Sense! Andre, operating off of approximately 2 hours of sleep like a 20 year old, started out the show forgetting that he does five morning shows a week, but luckily the beautiful and multi-talented Candidate Shelley reigned his ass back in and got us to our first topic: Door to Door Vaccine Strategy. Now, I don’t know about ya’ll, but speaking as a melanated individual, my door peephole is like caller id; if I don’t know who you are, I ain’t answering…but go off, volunteers.
Shelley then informed us a Baltimore police officer, Eric G Banks Jr, has been arrested and charged for assaulting another officer and resisting arrest. This led to a discussion on “black-on-black” crime as Andre spoke about a horrible situation leading to one of our young black king’s early death. Shelley reminded us that we need to place more value on our own lives, as we are least likely to destroy something we truly value. Come hear from Candidate Shelley and learn how your government officials are supposed to sound!
Now, what I don’t particularly value is this astronomical heat wave. It’s HOT. It’s the type of hot that makes you instantly angry the moment you step outside your door. Dre and Shelle talked about this wave of hell-fire and took it deeper, touching on our history with the sun while bringing on the hilarious yet insightful special guest Bookman to give us his take on this heatwave.
Meanwhile, Tik-Tok has another challenge. While my sisters are on a culture strike from Tik-Tok to take a break from the culture-vultures stealing shit and watering the culture down, folks had some free time to figure out a remedy for sinus congestion and…you know it…put it on Tik-Tok. Listen to Shelley and Dre’s take on it. It might be more for the millennials to listen, but we need ya’ll Baby Boomers to listen too, because you birthed our asses, ok? Meanwhile, Jamaica don’t give a damn about this Tik-Tok challenge; Dre showed us a brief clip highlighting that Jamaicans are demanding slavery reparations from Queen Elizabeth.
Music Heads, you’ll get to vibe to some ASAP Rocky, Pop Smoke, Chloe X Halle, and Reggae…I don’t know the name of the reggae artist…Dre might kill me for that, but hopefully this summary I gave ya’ll will Make it Make Sense for him to keep me alive.
