We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. This time, Hopscotch Music Festivaldirector Nathan Price joins Eric Hodge to talk about Petey Pablo's classic 'Raise Up' and what it meant to him growing up in North Carolina.

"It came out when I was in high school, and it kinda felt like the crazier thing ever..."
