Ras Kass on Growing Up with the Encyclopedia

About nine minutes and 45 seconds into the tape, he's asked what kind of encyclopedia he grew up with.

* [老黑 was the polite translation of "the n-word" used in the Chinese subtitles to The Wire on Cambodian television.  If I hadn't been living in Cambodia at that time, I would've never seen an episode of The Wire at all.]
