Let. Them. Starve.

In this episode, Major and Lise talk basic math when it comes to Memphis and Nashville, Jhene putting it all on the gram, how Wendy is doing and Issa's ring and things in the Bold and the Baeless, Dwyane's last dance, Tiger's redemption, and BeyoncĂ© passing on Reebok in Balls and All, Politikin' sees many firsts for the Chi's new mayor, Lise is obsessed with Seeking Sister Wife, Kim K is legal but not blonde, and much more in What Had Happened Was.

A new book about job transitions gets a spotlight.

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the passing of Nipsey Hussle reminds us all to continue the marathon, but don't feed the trolls during the race.

Lise has flowers for the Essence Fest and its lineup, and Major is proud of an icon living for the Love Offering.

The ladies are excited for Richard Wright's vision on screen, capturing the cosmos, #DemThrones, and the new streaming service coming for your coins.

A jazz legend in the making from the land of golden sunshine is the GRITS we love.

Y'all actin' up.

In this episode, Major and Lise are back in this year. Won't you celebrate with us?

We give our condolences to one of favorite new rappers and two souls whose broken hearts didn't heal after mass shootings. In the Bold and the Baeless, we recognize the Lady of the Rings and her Yankee boo, and we celebrate the Chance at holy matrimony. Baby News is adorable as always. Balls and All sees the Lake show break King James' playoff legacy, Shaq joins a problematic papa's business, March doesn't have Major mad, and Drake does a big flex. Politikin' has Lise's attention on a small time mayor with big time policy ideas and why the Mueller report is good news for the country (maybe...possibly). The Confessions album and the tour of *this* millennium are covered in We Getting Old. Plus, a beloved R&B singer and folks who don't understand basic manners get oiled in Moisturize Your Opinions.

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the recent federal college scandal has us reflecting on our own journey in college and what privileges we had in that journey.

Love Offerings are given to up-and-coming female rappers who are killing the game and a show that reminds us to live, work, and pose.

The real Ann Atwater, subject of an upcoming film, is the GRITS that we love as we finish out Women's History Month.

Yawn! Not much to see here.

Major and Lise return to the internet set ablaze, but everything's fine. We remember the life of Trayvon Martin, Precious Harris and the bold leader of the house of Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld. The Bold and the Baeless has a seat at the red table, GQ features South Central Love, Lise ships an Oscar winner and an Avenger, Don't Date Wale and our hearts go out to Diddy. Mazel to a new dad and blessings to a child of Destiny in Baby News. Balls and All has free-throws and tragic cornrows, Queen Serena's new commercial, and the unfortunate arrest of a recent Superbowl champion. The ladies also talk the chemistry between Bruno and Cardi, all the great new music, Grace owning the catwalk and the mysteries of Neverland.

Let's Talk About It Sis is back and the #WorstBlackHistoryMonthEver needed all the oils and butters.

A Love Offering goes out to two Southern Black womenpreneurs, and a YouTuber whose channel is treasure trove of vocals and joy.
