Every Friday, the q This panel looks at the biggest stories in music news. Today, CBC arts reporter Lisa Christiansen and music writer A. Harmony join guest host Rollie Pemberton (a.k.a. Cadence Weapon) to take a look at some of the best lyricists and songwriters making music today.
They cover Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, Radiohead, Frank Ocean, Little Big Town and Taylor Swift, and discuss how we determine if a song's lyrics are poetic.
