Dead On It: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On Episode 109 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics PodcastScott Woods and I get busy, too scizzy while discussing anti-rap diss track, “Dead On It” from the infamous Black Album. Prince was clearly not impressed with some of the early rap songs he heard, and I have an unconfirmed theory as to which song might have set him off.

Scott’s writing and where to purchase his book, Prince and Little Weird Black Boy Gods can be found using the link below.

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

  • Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
  • Discuss my own interpretation of each song’s lyrics along with any guest I may have
  • If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics

Thank you for joining me on this journey through Prince’s catalog!
