Welcome to pt 1. of our Season 3 finale! Today we're playing back stories recorded at our last kickback in Oakland. The first comes from Theo, a former child singer whose mom did whatever it took to support his career. The second, from Mani, who tried to run away from something that was rooted deep within.

Produced by: Adizah Eghan
