Youngboy Never Broke Again

CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke review key events in music and the music business from the last week, including the ruling that rapper Youngboy Never Broke Again’s lyrics cannot be used as evidence during his trial on firearms charges, and how that fits into the wider Rap On Trial debate in the US. Plus, the ruling that Bang energy drink infringed Universal’s copyright in promotional videos on TikTok.

PLEASE NOTE: This episode was recorded before Youngboy Never Broke Again was found not guilty on firearms charges.
