How We Tell Hip-Hop Stories

Join NPR's Yolanda Sangweni for a sit down with NPR Music’s 'Louder Than a Riot' host Sidney Madden on the unique dynamic of hip-hop storytelling. NPR Music's 'Louder Than a Riot,' hosted by Madden and Rodney Carmichael, covers rhyme and punishment in America. Season 1 of the series explored the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. As they gear up for season 2 of the critically-acclaimed podcast, Madden will share the journey of crafting narrative, investigative stories around the highly commodified but inconsistently represented culture.
