NORE has been killing it with the drank champions podcast on REVOLT becoming one of the leading hip-hop podcasts. He has recently had guests like Kanye West, Pusha T, A$AP Rocky, and Snoop Dogg, just to name a few. The format of the show is to have an intimate conversation over drinks with a partner who is always sure to tell iconic hip-hop stories.

NORE calls out rappers for not doing interviews with hip-hop media

Last night, Noreaga took to Twitter to vent about artists going to the big media platforms and skipping hip-hop altogether. David Letterman was one of the outlets he mentioned and people were quick to get Cardi B into the mix when she appears on the latest episode of the host’s Netflix show. However, this is not a new frustration coming from the hip-hop media or even black media journalists.

Entertainment journalists have been talking about this for years. For example, on movie red carpets there has been a long-standing pattern of advertisers taking their customers beyond black outlets to more conventional outlets.

The problem could be within the people who manage the talent schedule or the talent that feels that it is “too good” but that something has to give. In our culture, we have too many chart-dominating podcasts to overlook and ignore the audience that helped fuel their craft.

Noreaga set the record straight this morning by stating that she wasn’t singling out Cardi B for those who were instigating a potential feud.
