The subject of this Question of the Day is life in the inner-city. We'll take a look through the lens of artists who have made music from that vantage point. Which songs about the inner-city would you like to hear? We'll spin a set after 9am. 

Here's what we played:

Tracy Chapman "Across the Lines"

Bobby Womack "Across 110th Street"

Marvin Gaye "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)"

The Roots "How I Got Over"
