Did Lil Skies give the rest of the Lil’s respect overnight after the release of 'Shelby' and is he a better version of Wiz Khalifa? Can SAINt JHN push through his blasphemous christian imagery and be annointed as a top artist in 2019? Maybe his newest collaboration with Lil Baby called ‘Trap’ could be the answer. Lastly, after dropping his song with Blueface, G Eazy continues to disappoint...As always the guys answer all of these questions and touch on many more topics! #illadvisedwiseguys #DreamVizionNetwork #musicreview Ill-Advised Wise Guys Presents: Who Got Next?
