Host Lawrence Burney schools us with a history lesson on the music from his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.

This week on True Laurels, host Lawrence Burney calls class into session for a history lesson on the music from his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. But you won’t find any Billie Holiday here—today’s lesson will cover music from the late 80s to the present coming out of what we know now as “Urban America.” Tune in for a contemporary survey of the scene, an exploration of early overlooked local rap and Baltimore club classics, and the music inspired by Freddie Gray’s death.
