About this Episode

What determines whether or not a musical artist is authentic? Are artists like Solange and Tyler, The Creator showing us who they really are, or are modern celebrities more manufactured than ever before? Sht gets real on the latest episode of The Music Snobs. The crew dives into the very definition of authenticity in the music biz, then takes it up a notch by calling out the fakers and questioning why "keeping it real" is so important in black music. Before the episode ends, the Snobs get even realer during the roundtable by admitting: what universally beloved artist, album, or song is—in your opinion—actually terrible?
