People's Party with Talib Kweli

MC Eiht Talks Gang Life, Tupac, Menace II Society, DJ Quik Beef

S1, Ep. 39

In this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper, actor and West Coast legend MC Eiht. Being a veteran and pioneer of the Gangsta Rap genre, as well as someone that was fully immersed in the lifestyle that he portrays on wax, Eiht has a deeply authentic story to tell. To kick things off, the trip discusses how Eiht got turned onto gang life at such a young age, the sensationalizing of gang-banging, and how the sets have evolved since he was active. Eiht also digs into his famous long-standing beef with DJ Quik, and how they finally reconciled.
