morningamp:

Brian Babylon and guest host Susie An talked about street harassment and one woman’s efforts to combat the practice by handing out cards to catcallers that explain why the practice is harmful. Cassandra Gaddo later joined the conversation during the Council of Feminist Thought.

“I think one of the biggest things that can help this is male allies. If you see it happening, if you see your friend doing it, if it comes up in conversation, be the person who says ‘You know what guys? That’s actually really threatening to women. It’s not cool.’”

Marsha Ambrosius, formerly of the Soul Group, Floetry is out of Philadelphia has since gone solo and released 2011’s Late Night & Early Mornings. Friends & Lovers (2014) is her 2nd solo album featuring Dr. Dre & Charlie Wilson. She was signed to Aftermath during the Mid 2000’s and worked on music from Dr. Dre, The Game, 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes. This explains the random Dr. Dre feature.

This week, our Senior Hip Hop Correspondent Gabe Mendoza shared his thoughts on her latest album and discussed how he doesn’t believe in the R & B genre. He also touched base on how the merger of hip hop and soul music has created dope artists like Marsha Ambrosius but also created weak singers rocking over rap beats.

Gabe also shared his Critic for a Minute on his excitement for this year’s Chicago Bulls following a week of trades and decisions in the NBA.
