In this episode of Three Ain't A Crowd, Wanda speaks to legendary hip hop artist, PAV4N, on his life since Foreign Beggars, new record label and music, why rap is so misunderstood and how it builds community.

Three Ain't a Crowd seeks to explore the intersections between the arts, mental health and social change. With a different guest each week, the aim is to create an informal, diverse and accessible platform which does not shy away from difficult subjects including knife violence, the criminal justice system, mental health, bereavement, trauma and racism. These social issues are considered through the lens of fashion, film poetry, drag, hip-hop amongst others.
