Album Details:

Via Drowned in Sound:

“What does it all boil down to? To Pimp a Butterfly is an album with more to say about contemporary America – race relations, the country’s foundations on the slave trade, the vast inequalities dictated by money and skin color, the dysfunctional relationship between the sexes, fame and more – than you might read in many so-called Great American Novels. A review like this can really only glance on the most obvious themes that have seemed to emerge, without really capturing the full beauty, intricacy and brilliance of the work. This is an important – a very important – piece of work that will stand the test of time. It’s also an utter blast to listen to and live with.”

Ride Details:

Let’s take a tour of The Watts Towers, a National Historic Landmark and one of the most widely recognized works of art to come out of Southern California in the last century.

Notes:

Admission is $7 for the Watts Towers tour.
