Remember What Beef Is? (Feat. Jean Grae)

Back Issue - November 16, 2020 - 46:60

Day or Night, It's About To Be A What? Girl Fight! This week, Josh and Tracy give you all things beefs, feuds, and squabbles. They explore one of the most formative feuds of their youth — Brandy vs. Monica — and get into where they were when one of the most shocking diss tracks of our time dropped (hint: it involves a pink diamond chicken wing chain). Then, rapper and talented multi-hyphenate Jean Grae joins to share why she thinks beefs are so essential to the world of hip hop.Additional Material By: GOOD Music / Def Jam Recordings, Island Records, ViacomCBS, Bravo/NBC, True Entertainment/Bravo/NBC, ABC, True Entertainment/Bravo/NBC, Vibe Magazine/Eldridge Industries, Bungalow Records/Universal, 20th Century Fox/Disney, TMZ/Warner Bros, ViacomCBS, True Entertainment/Bravo/NBC, ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks, GOOD Music/Terrance Levarr Thornton, Atlantic Records, Epic Records / Columbia Records, PMRC, VladTV, Harpo Productions/Discovery Inc, NBC Universal News, Empire Distribution, A Band Apart / Miramax Films, Jean Grae, CW/Warner Bros., Dreamville Records/Universal Music Group, NONAME, BET HER/ViacomCBS.Production Music courtesy of For transcriptions, please visit our website at

About The Show

Back Issue reminisces on moments in pop culture’s past that have shaped our present. Each episode brings personal reflection, incredible guests, and plenty of deep belly laughs. This season our co-pilot Tracy Clayton is taking a break, so Josh Gwynn has invited some very special guest co-hosts to share their perspective on some of the most formative stories in pop culture. We start out with not just another hair story but a conversation about the gendered politics of specific hairstyles as Josh sets out on a mission to get a silk press. We’ll also reflect on iconic award speeches, explore what our brains do on gossip, break down the backstories of Degrassi and Cheetah Girls, decide if Josh should become the next Black ex-pat, and discuss which multi-hyphenate performers are deserving of their flowers.
