Last Friday, Serg Dun and Soft Money went live with the latest Stay Hatin' episode, their tribute show dedicated to the memory of their friend and co-host Matthew Africa. As Serg states: "Considering this is Stay Hatin' we couldn’t just have a sob session, so this episode is plenty of angry obnoxious raps, some new rap, some old rap but mostly a lot of talking and laughs." The dudes welcome guests DJ B.Cause, Willie Maze, Lydia Popovich and Tim Diesel to play some songs that remind them of Matthew and kick some memories, including but not limited to Tamale Day, Fuck Monday parties and Matthew's massive dislike for the term #YOLO, as well as his personal commitment to excellence. Musically, all kinds of fired-up, angry-ass raps get played, stuff like Da Bangaz, Project Pat and Lil' Jon and excessive amounts of Waka Flocka (Says Serg, "Sorry Matthew, but that’s what happens when you leave me in control.") But that's not all as vintage rap from Calvin T & Magic Mike, Gun Play rappin' over Raekwon's "Guillotine (Swordz)" and a fantastic R. Kelly selection (one of Mr. Africa's favorite artists) also gets spun. Rest in peace, Matthew.
Serg: "There's too much music that [Matthew] would want people to know about. That's something that he always did, to share music with people. Because he cared that fuckin' much that he didn't want [the music] to be forgotten."
