Beatz N’ Bitz Podcast – Surviving Snowpocalypse

As the new year begins we are already being faced with a landslide of scandals in every industry. For the hip hop community, R. Kelly’s reputation has been destroyed by 20 years of accusations leading to a Lifetime documentary series called “Surviving R. Kelly”. Randy Pitchford (CEO of Gearbox Software) also faces his own allegations including a $12 Million embezzlement in 2014 as well as illegal files said to have been found on a USB Stick containing sensitive information regarding contracts the studio had with Sony, Microsoft, 2K Games, and more. As both cases continue, we give our thoughts.

Other topics for this week’s show include the ending for Kingdom Hearts III as a free update, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy making its way to the Nintendo Switch later this year, Eddie Murphy’s Coming To America receiving a sequel in the near future, Resident Evil 2 Remake hands-on gameplay impressions, and a lot more hip hop and video games news topics.
