Like poppa, like son: Rodney Carmichael
On this episode of Louder Than A Riot, something a little different: It's part meditation, part conversation — between host Rodney Carmichael and writers Kiese Laymon and Jamilah Lemieux — about beats, rhymes and life. For Rodney, interrogating misogynoir in hip-hop means confronting some hard questions — as a man, and especially as a father. As Rodney thinks about raising the next generation without replicating his mistakes, he's looking more closely at how hip-hop shaped his definition of masculinity.

Rico Nasty, the 'strong Black woman' trope and how you get your power back
Rico Nasty's music creates a haven for heavy emotions. And in a world that paints Black girls showing any emotion as too much, having a place to release anger and anxiety is essential. But when Rico joined the 2021 Playboi Carti tour, his fans harassed her repeatedly and that safety was stripped away. On this episode of Louder Than A Riot, we talk with Rico about keeping a brave face, hear from a fan who was there in the crowd, and ask: When the outlet for your anger is shut down, how do you get your power back?

Kim Osorio, 'The Source' and hip-hop's overdue reckoning with misogynoir
In this episode of Louder Than A Riot, we ask what it means to speak up in a culture where it's always been safer to keep quiet. In 2006, Kim Osorio, then editor-in-chief of The Source, sued the magazine and its owners for workplace sexual harassment. Nearly two decades later, hip-hop still has not had a true reckoning around sexual misconduct. The Louder team talks with former Source writers who take us behind the scenes at the hip-hop bible and the circumstances that led to the suit. Activist Tarana Burke, creator of "Me Too," also reflects on how this case could have put hip-hop ahead of the curve on reckoning with misogynoir.

How did the "bad bitch" replace the "ride or die chick" in hip hop?
