TLC's long awaited album comes out next week while Jagged Edge's will be releasing their CD to coincide with their episode of Unsung which airs next month. We also review Stokley's new album which came out last week. We also debate whether we should be talking about new artists such as Th Internet, SZA and Bryson Tiller on the podcast.

Along with that, we discuss some of our favorite albums that came out this year including Kevin Ross, Avery Sunshine and DJ Jazzy Jeff. We also talk about some of the albums that were just okay in our opinion including Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz and Charlie Wilson. We also talk about some of our favorite songs of the year so far from the likes of Musiq Soulchild, LeToya Luckett and Mali Music.

We also get into some more current news in music such as the impact of DJ Khaled and how it affects the genre of R&B. For our hall of fame discussion, we nominate Janet Jackson and Eric Benet. As usual, the debate gets pretty heated. We conclude the podcast talking about Tamia's career. Check out another episode of our podcast!!
