Chris Gotti is an OG & a music industry vet. He’s seen it all, done it all and been through it all. After our classic interview with him last year we had to follow up with ANOTHER ONE while taking a totally different approach. Today Gotti joins us to discuss several relevant topics in black culture including the YSL RICO indictment, Ye, Kyrie Irving, the state of the rap game, how to navigate media spaces and brother Irv’s $300M deal with Olivier Chastain [BAG DROP 💰].
We also discuss the latin music explosion, his favorite artists of the new generations and hear NEVER BEFORE TOLD stories about Murder Inc., janky music industry practices, and a crazzzyyyy one about Ashanti & Irv. We also hear it from Chris about if Jay Z told the Feds on the ultra secretive black distribution company & music union that was almost started by Irv, Suge Knight and J. Prince (Awwww Yeah). We also touch on unbelievable run-ins with Tony Yayo and 50 Cent where Gotti kept ULTRA GANGSTA… sorry Yayo 😵💫. If you loved the first one as much as we did this one is certainly going to the top of the TRPE Hall of Fame as well.
