On Travis Scott And Drake's Responsibility In The Astroworld Tragedy + Why Chris Pratt Keeps Getting Voted Worst Chris
Last weekend, eight people died at Travis Scott’s festival, Astroworld. Scott is a performer who invites intensity to his live performances. Now Scott, Drake, and concert promoter Live Nation are facing lawsuit. We discuss the artist’s responsibility in ensuring safety at their concerts.

Plus, in this week's Drop It In The Group Chat, we talk Belfast, James Bond / No Time To Die, and Yeezy's new boots.
