In this episode we speak with some of the members from the online music review collective called NotYaManz. We speak with founder John D. Contradiction, Reckless, Angel, and T.R.3. about how the collective started, the brutal honesty and feedback they give, the drama that comes with the review territory, knowledge that every artist should know, and more. The music review collective started in Long Island, spread throughout the country, and is active globally through the online community "for artists by artists".
