Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! Our apologies it’s been over a week since the last podcast came out, but we’ve got a few more ready to be released ASAP!
This week, we bring you an amazing interview with the bombastically radical MC of The Coup, Boots Riley, done by the equally bombastic Dave Zirin of Edge of Sports. The interview was recorded at the Politics and Prose bookshop in Washington, DC, and distributed by the ever-amazing Making Contact radio program. A fascinating and exciting listen. Do be sure to check out Boots’ recently-published book “Tell Homeland Security – We are the Bomb“.
Plus, as always, tons of great music here, spanning afrobeat, hip-hop, and punk rock, all with that class war edge.
