Louder Than A Riot

A weekly True Crime and Music podcast
 2 people rated this podcast
Rhyme and punishment go hand in hand in America. Louder Than A Riot reveals the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. From Bobby Shmurda to Nipsey Hussle, each episode explores an artist's story to examine a different aspect of the criminal justice system that disproportionately impacts Black America. Hosted by NPR Music's Rodney Carmichael and Sidney Madden, this podcast is invested in power from all angles — the power the music industry wields over artists, the power of institutional forces that marginalize communities of color, the power of the prison industrial complex and the power dynamics deep-rooted in the rap game.

I'm a former history teacher, and a total fan of anything dealing with the history of hip hop music, which I did not really grow up listening to, although I had a sister who was 13 years older than me and was a West Coast rap fan. I love the time spent to dig deeply and honestly into the interconnection of hip-hop music, and the prison industrial complex. It's definitely a topic that I discussed in my classroom, so this is fabulous!
