Logo N.W.A grafitIt’s Friday, and World Cafe’s "Sense of Place" visit to Los Angeles continues. This week, host Raina Douris takes a tour of South Central, where West Coast hip hop started. Led by L.A. Hood Life Tours, we’ll stop by the garage where N.W.A. recorded Straight Outta Compton and the childhood homes of Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, and more. Then, we meet L.A. folk artist Jamie Drake and hear her live performance taped back in March at Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Coming up, on the next World Cafe.

World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
