POPcast is back with part two of episode five! In this instalment, they discuss the value of artist merchandise; thus your hoodies, t-shirts, etc. A cause for celebration is that Speedsta announced he was extending his brand to include a shop for skating paraphernalia. This leads further into the conversation around the importance of an artist working on more than just music.
