The interview, like Hanif’s writing, conveys what it feels like to be awake, fully observant inside the whirlwind of America in the late twenty-teens. LARB Radio Hour: A Deep Dive into Pop Culture with Hanif Abdurraqib
By LARB AV – April 27, 2018
Hanif Abdurraqib may just be the most poignant raconteur of American culture in the age of Donald Trump. Hanif joins co-hosts Eric Newman and Medaya Ocher to talk about They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us, his magisterial collection of essays on the contemporary music scene; and all the pain, pleasure, promise, disappointment, pasts and presents, communities and self that he finds there.
