Adam has a fumbled intro and says he must get a doppelganger and complains about getting it from all corners, BB has a funny reaction to the intro and Adam says he’s happy as John worked on the Steve McQueen documentary that he enjoyed, not the one he didn’t enjoy. Leigh Savidge is making his 2nd appearance on the show, this time for a phoner, he was last on ACS #1644 promoting ‘Straight Oughtta Compton’.
He mentions calling from work in Hawthorne California, the home of ‘The Beach Boys’ and Adam jokes about people using famous folk being from their hometown to brag about it, the Cindy Crawford in DeKalb story.
Adam is now asking S. Leigh about the ‘Death Row’ movie and where that’s at, he talks about the general fear to peruse the project and presumptions it could still be a dangerous topic. Leigh is telling them about the documentary he’s promoting/worked on, he has some inside details about the Biggie/Tupac friendship that led to the eventual beef and their assassinations.
Adam mixes ups his plugs for his podcast and documentary, Adam wants to know who knows something in the Death Row and Bad Boy record camps.
Leigh is talking about THE ‘KEFFE D’ TAPES and doesn’t mention the part about him accusing Sean Combs of hiring him to kill Tupac.
Adam has a funny Kiki Dee comment and BB plays some ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ much to the delight of Adam who actually likes this song, not quite a “tool tune” and they go back to what S. Leigh was saying.
Adam is explaining the topography of Los Angeles and the Peterson Auto Museum vs. the Las Vegas Strip.
Every time S. Leigh says Keffe D, BB plays the song again and Adam goes on a funny riff over the song, solid comment from Adam before asking for a “holy shit” moment and he hints at the involvement of Puffy, without every saying it at all.
BB plays the song again and gets shutdown, S. Leigh is now giving them the dates of the assassinations and further connecting the dots between the murders of both men.
Adam is now sharing Mike August’s theory about Suge Knight taking out Tupac, Adam argues that the bullets that hit him the driver would perhaps dissuade him from that plan.
Adam is now asking about the chosen location for the hits and S. Leigh explains how they might have been following them for some time and casing their movement, staking them out.
They keep trying to get S. Leigh to say Keffe D, there are about 5 beats and Adam stops the show to marvel at BB feeling like him when he tries to get someone to repeat something or correct it.
They go back and have him list off some names until he hits Keffe again and they play the song, Gary gets on mic and they wrap up with S. Leigh Savidge.
Gina brings up Captain and Tennille and Adam talks about the modern era of people getting divorced after 39yrs of marriage.
BB brings up the oddity that two of the biggest stars in music were assassinated less than a year apart and nobody talks about it, Adam says it’s the quiet racism of lowered expectations and that’s why it never comes up.
Adam says if it was two white artists you would never stop talking about it, funny two examples from BB and reaction from Gina.
Adam says if it was Michael Bublé and Josh Groban example, we would never stop talking about it as a culture, instead we have true insidious racism that implies it was almost expected or a likely outcome solely due the two men’s skin color.
