Profile

We always called it the dirty South, but we’re not mad at Roni Sarig for arguing that hip-hop’s “third coast” deserves the same kind of recognition as the South Bronx. In Third Coast: Outkast, Timbaland, and How Hip-Hop Became a Southern Thing, the veteran music journalist takes us back to the pre-“Hotlanta” streets, nightclubs and record shops. Tonight he’ll rap with XXL editor-in-chief Elliott Wilson and VIBE writer Jon Caramanica.
