Uncle Vinny wrote, “You can’t expect old people to go on a show and talk about the new wave when I have never seen them in any of the events that the kids are hosting“. Misa did not hold back on schooling the young influencer on what the task for the show was.
“The mandate was not to discuss new wave the subgenre, but the “new wave” of musicians in industry Degrading the work of panelists that don’t agree w/ you on an arbitrary basis like age w/o listening or effectively communicating your thoughts is the catalyst of your frustration“, Misa wrote.
