Ricky Gervais rarely co-signs musicians. In fact he possibly never does. So it was a surprise to some but not the Conspiracy Worldwide boys when he recently co-signed UK emcee Genesis Elijah and actively reached out to promote Elijah’s music to millions of die-hard Gervais followers. Genesis Elijah joins us on this show to reflect upon 2011, his reaction and admiration of comedy greats such as Gervais, citing their refusal to adapt their material for certain niche groups or superficial mainstream approval, as the biggest reason why eh sampled Ricky Gervais in his latest track. We talk new 2012 material as well as a frank and near-the-knuckle discussion of the UK music industry, referencing the failing mass media corporations such as the BBC for the bi-curious nature of so many male artists in 2011. A must hear sermon.
