Don’t miss this special opportunity to be part of a live podcast recording of Bottom of the Map in conjunction with the exhibition Virgil Abloh: “Figures of Speech.” Bottom of the Map Live! is a dynamic conversation and musical experience that brings all of the passionate, witty, and ratchet energy of WABE’s Bottom of the Map podcast to the stage in front of a live audience. Hosts Christina Lee and Dr. Regina N. Bradley will explore how Southern hip-hop artists such as 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, and Gucci Mane relate to Abloh’s notion of “Tourist vs. Purist.”
Named “Best of Atlanta” by Atlanta Magazine, Bottom of the Map features Georgia-bred scholar Dr. Regina N. Bradley and music journalist Christina Lee as two of the prominent voices in hip-hop dialogue, using Southern hip-hop as a space for cultural commentary and critique. In their first season, they delved into a range of topics, including Southern hip-hop’s connections to self-care, HBCU marching-band culture, Afrofuturism, and a whole lot more. Described by its listeners as “insightful,” “relatable,” “funny,” and “making even the most explored idea feel new,” Bottom of the Map is coming back for a second season, and this live episode will be a part of it!
