GOOD READ

Mic on the how Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" became a protest anthem.

“'The whole damn place went nuts,' said Davey D, who attended the convening in Cleveland. 'You were moved. There was no way you could just sit back and not feel the effect of that song. Everybody was singing in unison. It was like being at church.'"

Thanks for listening!

- Dave, Dev & Team Hype Machine
