Popular Music: The Podcast

Jul 23, 2018

Well let me welcome everybody to this SEVENTY-FOURTH episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, in which your hosts dissect and divulge all the details about 2Pac’s masterpiece, “California Love.” Steven will recount the prolific artist’s history (and why he had produced so many tracks that keep continue to be released post-humously), while Analise will break down the main riffs in the song and connect one of them to ANOTHER Dr. Dre production. Which one? You gotta listen.


No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
