Vic Mensa, Opinions on tUnE-yArDs, Dolores O'Riordan & Hugh Masekela

On his debut record, The Autobiography, Vic Mensa raps about his life growing up on the South Side of Chicago. With a confessional tone, he explores topics like community, violence, drugs, and racism. Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot talk with Mensa about his influences, his struggles and the experience of growing up “five blocks from the projects and five blocks from Obama’s house." Plus, they review the latest album from tUnE-yArDs and Jim pays tribute to the late Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries and Greg bids farewell to South African jazz legend Hugh Masekela.
