Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Rodney King beating during the infamous Los Angeles riots. To commemorate the event, and to put it in prospective years later, THURZ, one-half of west coast duo U-N-I, has released his first solo record. Produced by longtime collaborator Ro. Blvd, King serves as the introductory listen to the emcee’s upcoming solo album, entitled L.A. Riot, which is set for release in May.
