Crack Era NYC (Ep28)

Last week’s #JooksiRadio episode, “Crack Era New York  City” featured Rakim, NWA, Ice T, & more… Prov(@Prov_sez) & Free(@fredaramareva) discussed this pivotal time period in music and society as we know it. Not a lot of positive things can be said about this era in time. But the art that came from it is undeniable. It served as a vivid narration of the realities and struggles people endured. And also forged a generation of youth  taking their survival into their own hands. The lingering effects of the “war on drugs” is still prevalent in today’s society.
