We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Classics.

Devin The Dude is well known amongst the hip hop elite and has worked with many of them. The laid back emcee talks about his philosophy, his influences, and unique approach to hip hop. Rob Bowman is one of the world's foremost experts on Stax Records. The unusual history of Stax is also a compelling one. Not only did the label define southern soul music, it was also an example of "racial sanity" at the height of segregation.
