UPDATE: Added below is a stream of Kari Faux’ new EP CRY 4 HELP, and well as — if you missed it — her latest visual for “LEAVE ME ALONE.”
This Monday, 3/11 at 4pm EST/1pm PST, the station will air the next episode of True Laurels w/ host Lawrence Burney. As a show, True Laurels covers hip-hop, rap and music across the African diaspora to uncover greater stories of the genre’s cultural impact, politics and human perspective. The show aims to expand our palette for hip-hop discourse.
From Little Rock to Los Angeles, Monday’s guest Kari Faux has had a multifaceted ride to ascension. In 2014 she caught the attention of Donald Glover with the single “No Small Talk” off her Laugh Now, Die Later mixtape and has since collaborated with Issa Rae on original music for the popular HBO show Insecure and produced a track on the Internet’s album Hive Mind. The singer, rapper and Childish Gambino collaborator stops by to chat with Lawrence about her new EP CRY 4 HELP.
