BbyAfricka Is Her Own Biggest Inspiration

This article previously appeared on Audiomack World. Listening to BbyAfricka rap is like stumbling into the structured chaos of a MadLibs game. The Inglewood, California, artist first took an interest in music when her father bought her an iPad so she could make her own beats. She only made a handful before becoming overwhelmed with the process, which encouraged her to put her own twist on singing and, eventually, rapping. Her 2018 debut, Brain Damage, is a blend of R&B, emo, and indie rock reflective of the deep depression she experienced during its recording.

LAPD Report On Echo Park Protest Says Better System For Tracking Projectiles And Dealing With Independent Journalists Needed

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – In a new report, the Los Angeles Police Department admits that they need a better system for tracking the use of projectiles and for dealing with the rise of independent journalists. The report is related to a March protest in Echo Park in which 182 people were arrested on charges of failure to disperse. Clashes between protestors and police that day had to do with the closure of Echo Park Lake and the clearing of homeless encampments. LAPD’s report also blamed the city for a lack of park rangers, claiming that rangers could’ve prevented some of the problems by preventing the encampment from growing so large. The Police Commission will review the report further at a Tuesday meeting.
