TSOM17: When Cornerbacks Attack: A Listen Through This Deion Sanders Record


For this episode, the TSOM panel prepare for the AFC and NFC Championship games with a critical listen to the 1990-something Deion Sanders record, Prime Time. Long, drivelous, and completely self-indulgent, Prime Time marks a day and age where athletes were making risky and daring moves with their careers off the field and the lure of making music was real. But, so then, was the lack of talent and creative vision. Deion’s foray into music is a paralyzing and mind-numbing listen. We’re joined by the wonderfully talented Clint Carroll to play Monday morning quarterback with one of the more unfortunate athlete-recorded albums in the history of modern music.
