"Black rock is resurgent because hip hop has been so abused."

The second part of my interview with Kiss The Sky author Farai Chideya clocks in a hair over 17 minutes.  In it, we discuss:

  • The playlist mentality
  • Cultural hybridity
  • Two kinds of truth
  • KTS's plot and the prognosis for Black rock
  • Rock music as a fulcrum of passion
  • Rock: All in some ways a game of dress up and make believe
