Why grief sometimes looks like a hyphy party | It's Been a Minute

On August 11, 1973, hip-hop was born at a house party in the Bronx. 50 years later the genre has been reshaped in the image of cities and regions around the world.

Brittany is joined by KQED's Pendarvis Harshaw to do a deep dive into one hip-hop scene from the Bay Area known as hyphy. They unpack how the loud, brash, hyperactive music helped a community grieve. To hear more of Pendarvis Harshaw's reporting on this Bay Area music scene, check out the Rightnowish (https://www.kqed.org/podcasts/rightno...) series: Hyphy Kids Got Trauma (https://www.kqed.org/arts/13934874/hy...) .
