Luther Campbell

Luther Campbell is a legendary rapper (the leader of the 2 Live Crew) who has been fighting for free speech rights for over two decades.  His new book is “The Book of Luke: My Fight for Truth, Justice and Liberty City.”  We talked about his beginnings as an independent artist, how the 2 Live Crew quickly caught on to mainstream success (and brought about an obscenity declaration and a case before the Supreme Court), and why he continues to fight the good fight for civil liberties.
