Groove Playlist: Top Diss Tracks

Top Diss Tracks

Social media has no chill but we must hand it to celebrities for starting 'beefs' on social media or throwing shade at each other. The most recent 'beef' has been Meek Mill's allegations that Drake uses a ghostwriter, and the Toronto rapper turned up the heat by releasing not only one but two diss tracks which are "Charged Up" and "Back To Back (freestyle)". It does not end there, Nicki Minaj's ex bae, Safaree 'SB' Samuels also took a swing at Meek Mill for dissing him on Twitter by calling him gay and giving reasons why Nicki left. SB might not be a good rapper like his former flame, (evidently Twitterverse shares the mutual notion) but he has punchlines.
So in honour of all beefs, rivalries and shades we have compiled our top diss tracks in hip hop, pop and R&B.

Podcast In Zimbabwe: The New Movement

Music And Entertainment Podcasts To Check Out

In an era of digitalisation, the methods of disseminating information are changing. Most traditional forms  such as books, newspapers, magazines have mostly moved online although in some parts of the world there is still great need to go digital. Well in Zimbabwe, it seems that there are a group, or few individuals who are giving audiences an alternative to radio through podcasting. 
By definition, a podcast is a digital medium that consists of an episodic series of audio or digital radio, subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device.

Online magazines, bloggers, radio personalities, have created platforms to tell the Zimbabwean story for different aspects of Zimbabwe. We look at the music and entertainment podcasts that we highly recommend that fans of music and entertainment should listen to whether in Zimbabwe or across the globe.
