The Dropcast main (1) Nike kanye west

On this episode of The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Davin Gentry and Scooty Hallums of Washington DC-based label and nightlife spot Diet Starts Monday and cozy clothing brand Premium Co. They discuss Hedi Slimane’s debut at Celine (minus the accent over the “e”), and talk about how despite the criticism, it might make good business sense for the label. As one of the guests points out—that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good thing for fashion.

Then something surprising happens when we start to get into the listener voicemails. We asked if Kanye West is too far gone to redeem himself, given the delay of his latest album Yahndi, and his continued support of Trump and other right-wing figures like Alex Jones. After receiving more than 70 voicemails, the ones that end up in the show paint a beautiful, dark, twisted reality of his fanbase now.

As always, keep dialing in with your comments and feedback on the Dropcast Hotline, at 888-HIGHSNOB (888-444-4766). Thanks for listening.
