Late last month (August 17th) P. Diddy asked his Twitter followers the provocative question, “Who killed R&B?”, which sparked a massive amount of debate and too many think pieces. He then followed that up with the provocative statement: “R&B is muthafuckin’ dead as of right now.” So…what does that mean? Why is he calling R&B’s death now? To help answer these questions, jarrett and Tre’vell speak with singers Mykal Kilgore and Neverending Nina.

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
