On the next Liner Notes: DaVinci

Feb 17, 2015


Liner Notes invites today's musicians to explore the inspirations behind their work. In each hour, host Max Jacobs sits down with a musician to spin the records that made them want to make music. Whether it's the first song they heard their grandmother sing or an unexpected guilty pleasure, you'll hear the stories of the music that matters to them and how it's shaped them.

This week Max Jacobs is joined by San Francisco rapper DaVinci. Raised in the Fillmore, DaVinci paints a portrait of the City now and then: from struggling amidst crime and poverty to urban renewal and gentrification. His favorite records tell a story of hope and struggle as a young black man in San Francisco.
