LA WEEKLY -- Felicia Angeja Viator is assistant professor of History at San Francisco State University and, prior to that, she was a respected Bay Area DJ. But with this latest book, she turns her attention to LA, which is wonderful because her understanding of the hip-hop music and the musicians that first emerged from the streets of LA in the ’80s is deep and profound.
