A Brief History of Black Music — By White Artists, Part 1

White artists have been celebrated by the mainstream for performing Black music throughout history — but which ones are the real deal, and which ones have eclipsed more worthy Black artists? The Music Snobs podcast presents… A Brief History of Black Music — by White Artists, the first instalment in a loud and lively A-Z of everything from classic crossovers to culture vultures. From Led Zeppelin to Eminem to Kenny G., the crew name names, go in on the whitewashed, and shout out the true blues. TMS finally close out the episode with one of the hypest roundtables yet, to ask: What one singer (Black or white) didn’t appear on the 1985 charity hit single ‘We Are The World’ — but should have been included? Listen up as tough questions mix with tougher answers, along with the usual insight and irreverence you expect from your favorite Snobs in the game.
