Friday Thread: #1 With A Bullet

In my first bonus book review for April, I raved about Rap On Trial (not a paid subscriber? There’s an excerpt of the book here). That got me wondering about the most compelling cases from the world of music. Eve went with, and I quote, “Phil Spector!!!” but I didn’t love the HBO dramatization of the case; I did like Unsolved and Biggie: The Life Of Notorious B.I.G., and Surviving R. Kelly was difficult but important. And surely the Cocaine & Rhinestones pod has, or will have, something on the rumor that Kenny Rogers paid some dude to take the fall for a cocaine possession charge.

What’s your favorite music-related case material — whether it’s a doc, a pod, a book, or a murder ballad?
