BONUS: The Badder, The Better

Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda blew up in 2014 off of his song “Hot N****” and the instantly viral Shmoney Dance. But just months after his breakout hit, Bobby and about a dozen of his friends were arrested and slapped with conspiracy charges in connection with a murder and several other shootings.

In this episode of NPR’s new podcast Louder Than A Riot, hosts Rodney Carmichael and Sidney Madden head to Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York to meet Bobby for an exclusive in-person interview, tour his neighborhood with his crew, grab a bite at his mom’s seafood joint and learn new details of the studio raid that changed Bobby’s life.
