This Week in Hype: The Illuminati Special Edition

You know that feeling on Christmas morning when you would run downstairs and see all those presents waiting for you under the tree? The "This Week in Hype" podcast is exactly like that, except not at all. 

This week, I had to convene a little emergency podcast. I broke the story about the official tracklist to Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly, and the wrath of the Illuminati (not really, but kind of really) came down upon my head. The behind-the-scenes story says a lot about how music and the media work in 2015, so I told it.
