Saw Killer Mike mention a love of outlaw country so I gave some a listen. Ended up listening to Johnny Cash’s San Quinten which he actually played at San Quinten prison to the inmates – along with a full concert which he recorded and released. In some ways I am sure it was a publicity stunt, but it sure sounds like it’s also coming from a place of understanding and genuinely wanting to do something.
I’m assuming it was uncommon, but don’t know exactly how rare it really was. Anyone know?
In case you haven’t ever heard it
