Yasiin Bey Talks Trump, Return to Music and Film

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Yasiin Bey stopped by Hot 97 for an honest, enlightening and at times hilarious discussion with Ebro and Laura Stylez. Over the course of an hour, they talk Mayweather vs. Mcgregor, his legal issues in South Africa, the exploitation of the African continent at large, the importance of seeing the world with your own eyes and the lack of leadership in the Trump era and how crazy the United States is looking in the eyes of the rest of the world.

He also goes deep into why he has fallen back from acting and music over the past several years, critiques the artists of today and the deals they are signing and speaks to whether or not we’ll see him returning to the game anytime soon. Finally, he speaks on Colin Kaepernick and the hypocrisy on his inability to find a job and the national conflict over Confederate flags, statues and history.

Styles P & Adjua Discuss their Daughter’s Suicide

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Styles P and his wife Adjua Styles paid a visit to the Breakfast Club this morning for an emotional and enlightening conversation about the loss of their daughter to suicide in 2015. The couple discusses in great detail and with unflinching honesty the factors that they believe lead to Tai’s suicide, the scourges of mental illness and depression, the stigma that still surrounds members of the LGBT community and what they see as their own personal failings as parents to recognize and address their child’s pain.

They also speak at length about the need for absentee fathers in communities of color to do better with regard to their presence in the lives of their children, and how we all need to better communicate with our loved ones. As a father, this was extremely hard to watch at times, but these are hard lessons and if what Styles and Adjua went through is at all preventable then we all have a responsibility to listen and learn.
