2. Kidd Cole claims to have executive produced “Drunk In Love” by Beyonce.

3. Through a series of Google searches some amazing investigative reporting, Nev and Max discover that Kidd Cole is a guy named Jerez. He has not worked with Kanye West. As a matter of fact, there is a  Facebook page dedicated to how much people hate him for being a scammer.

4. We meet a really exciting limo river, who wears a chauffeur’s cap with rhinestones. She also posted this thrilling music video to the KIDD COLE IS A SCAMMER Facebook page.

6. They meet Kidd Cole on a pier. He thinks that Lucille is a fan. He doesn’t know that they know that he’s a fake. Nev also dramatically throws his phone into the ocean and gets yelled at by a producer.

7. They decide to meet up the next day at Jerez’s recording studio. Nev asks to hear one of his songs. Nev covertly Soundhounds the music they play and discovers it is by someone else. Their plot is further foiled when they don’t know how to operate the microphones in their “studio.”

8. He’s caught. He makes lots of excuses as to why he’s a liar. He cries. There is no resolution.

The real question is, what did Kanye think of this episode?
