All three of the Brothers were tripping over each other to get a word in edgewise in this episode! "But wait, lemme finish tho" was the refrain of the evening as we discussed the finer points of the Trump administration's foreign policy; this episode was recorded less than an hour after the news broke that President Trump authorized a missile strike in Syria. Not left on the table was the controversy around the Pepsi co...

The Three Brothers are back! RiPPa joins Jay aka Average Bro and The Uppity Negro after a hiatus. We delve head first into politics and the massive failure of Trump and GOP party when it came to "repeal and replace." The movie "Burning Sands" and Dave Chappelle's new comedy on Netflix make an appearance.

Jay, aka Average Bro and the Uppity Negro chop it up this week about President Trump visiting the Smithsonian's African American History museum, some #OscarSoWhite speculations and the lackluster NBA All Star game. Somehow the two find themselves drilling down on the week that produced #HurtBae and some of the more wonkish parts of the two-party system moving forward and looking at mid-terms 2018.

As we settle into the new normal, the Three Brothers, minus Rippa, discuss black athletes in the Age of Trump and post-Super Bowl, we find ourselves discussing the cabal that Trump is amassing, better known as the Cabinet as well as the hot water George Lopez has found himself in recently. And somehow, the Migos are the center of yet another discussion amongst ourselves. And recommendations at the end.

Trump continues to dominate the leading discussion--should the feds go to Chicago, but Jay and the Uppity Negro bounce around conversation about the New Edition miniseries biopic, the death of the WorldStar Hip Hop creator, the celebrity of the Migos and "Bad & Boujee" and finally was Cornel West right about Barack Obama?

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
