We're re-casting Nate Wilcox's second 2019 interview with Dan Charnas about his book "The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip Hop.” In this episode, Dan tells Nate about the emergence of West Coast gangsta rap and the massive PR kerfluffles that followed the release of "Cop Killer" by Ice T's heavy metal band Body Count.
