On this episode of The Dropcast, hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas are joined by Naina Kamath and Byron Stewart to discuss the hottest news topics of the week. First up is Michael Kors’ recent acquisition of Versace, a $2.1 billion deal that actually makes more sense than critics might think. Then things get particularly heated over an op-ed published this week, one that posits that maybe Space Jam is actually a terrible film. Chairs get thrown and bottles are turned into knives as the crew goes head-to-head over this divisive topic.
But in the end, what ultimately brings harmony back to The Dropcast is one person: Lil Wayne. This week we’re celebrating the release of Tha Carter V by teaming up with Bravado to reveal a series of 14 collaborative products tapping brands and designers to make merch for Lil Wayne’s latest album. Listeners also call in and share their favorite “Wayne Moments” through the years.
