Episode 015 - The Role of the Contemporary Music Blog
 The 15th installment of A-Side B-Side Podcast is inspired by a couple  tweets (quoted below) and a 4 AM twitter rant and editorial that never happened.  "These music blogs are blame for the state of music as it stands now idc call me a hater but they the problem when it comes to all this trash a** music out now people paying them for spins and promo and the people really eat the sh*t up like its not a whole scheme" — Ya Mamma (@_JuseMane) January 11, 2019 "Blog Era was perfect rap. Hip-hop was at its best between 2008-2013 and that just is what it is." — B.I.G.K.E.V. (@indiKEV) January 11, 2019 Instead of the long winded rant. Ramsey explains the confusion. In 2019, what do music blogs even do? Are they part of the blame for the way the music industry is? Press play to listen to the (not quite) angsty music blogger and journalist's response. He made a mention of an article written by @BigSto. I think you should check it out and read it here.   The music in this episode is Doin' The Most by Sade Emoni.   You can also see her performing live at WhatsTheMovement.net's Feels Like R&B.
