This week, we’re joined by Felicia Angeja Viator, author of To Live and Defy in LA: How Gangsta Rap Changed America. Eric, Kate and Medaya talk with Felicia about the rise of gangsta rap in Los Angeles, the sounds and culture that defined the era, the artists and performers who rose to stardom, and how we still see the effects of that sound in music today. 

Also, artist Harry Dodge, author of My Meteorite, returns to recommend Crudo A Novel by Olivia Laing
