"See, The Thing Is..." Crystals & Jameson Part 2 Feat. Blue Telusma Crystals & Jameson Part 2 Feat. Blue Tel...
Happy Friday See The Thing Is family! Last week's episode was too good, we couldn't dive into our freshly squeezed segment. So, this week, your hosts Bridget Kelly and Mandii B give you the second part of our 2-part interview with writer, on-air personality, and friends with benefits Blue Telusma. The ladies break down the new 21 Savage and Drake collaboration album "Her loss" and conclude... rappers are the new mean girls (11:00). Did our favorite toxic king Drake take his disses a little too far on this album or do rappers simply need a hug (36:00)? Later the three discuss adult friendships (57:00) and the importance of understanding friends for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. How do you show up for the "struggle friend"? Why do we confuse having a courageous conversation with a friend, drama? Let's just face it...some friendships just don't age well and it's okay to let them go. Speaking of, this week's Freshly squeezed is dedicated to songs that did not age well (1:14:00). Enjoy and DM us to share some of the songs you think didn't age too well. 1:11:00- Bug-A-Boo- Destiny's Child 1:12:00- Who Let The Dogs Out- Baha Men 1:14:00- Thong Song - Sisqo 1:16:00- Boom Bye Bye- Buju Banton 1:20:00- Addictive - Truth Hurts Ft.
