While working on this story on Compton and the birth of gangsta rap in the winter of 2014, I ended up doing an interview with busy rapper Compton AV, aka AV LMKR, in the garage in Norwood where his producer Ayo Mecoo lived.
Compton AV released his debut album, Tru 2 the Streetz [edit: he calls it a mixtape] this April, and here’s my interview in full.
