Poet and Emcee G Yamazawa

We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. On this episode, Kamaya Truitt-Martin is in for Eric Hodge. She talks with the WUNC Youth Reporting Team about G Yamazawa's 'North Cack.'

"...I felt pride, I felt strong, and I felt that BEAT."
