Editors’ Notes Louder Than a Riot is an NPR Music original podcast that goes deep on the connection between the rise of hip-hop culture and mass incarceration in America. With stories centered on hip-hop stars who have been directly affected by the justice system, the series explores how these policies have cultural impact beyond the damage to individuals’ lives. This official playlist will serve as a soundtrack companion to the series, updated weekly with music from each episode.
