Young Thug Sends Us a Snake, Lyor Shuts Down Rich the Kid & Talks Biz | Everyday Struggle

On the Thursday August 2 episode of #EverydayStruggle, DJ Akademiks, Wayno and Nadeska welcome a new guest to the set: His name is 'Ewww' the snake, and he was a gift from Young Thug in promotion of his upcoming project 'Slime Language.' The crew also discusses Lyor Cohen's lengthy Breakfast Club Interview where he responds to Rich the Kid's rant against 300 Entertainment, gives insight on the future of labels and streaming services like YouTube Music, and dicusses how the opioid epidemic is affecting the industry and why he'll still sign artists who promote drug use in their music. Plus we answer some fan questions in 'Struggle Exchange' -- including one of our wildest questions to date: Is Lil Uzi Vert's 'XO Tour Life' the modern day version of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller?'
