This week, Los Angeles native G Perico discusses cars, Nipsey’s influence, and police presence in the community. After talking all things South Central LA, he makes a call to Rep. Maxine Waters from California’s 43rd district to speak firsthand on the biggest problem in his neighborhood, and offer to help find a solution together.
Who really runs their city? Rappers Call Their Rep puts that question to the test. Rappers talk about the cities they lay claim to— what defines these areas, what these locations mean to them, and issues that residents of these districts can speak to best— before getting the chance to share their thoughts with the person elected to represent that city.
