My guest this week is Neru. She’s an MC and singer from Baltimore. I saw her perform at The Windup Space last winter, and I’ve wanted to learn her history ever since.
She talks about feeling like a black sheep as a kid, and gradually finding her way into music. She lets me know about her first group, and how she became a solo artist. And we talk about her Enlightenment Era album, and her other forthcoming projects.
Mike Riley’s art this week is an homage to Pure Poverty, by Poor Righteous Teachers.
