Uncuffed My Mixtape: Dear Mama

KALW / Uncuffed

We’ve got something new for Season 3 of Uncuffed. Every other week, in between podcast episodes, we’ll give you a taste of what our producers like to listen to –– we're calling it the Uncuffed My Mixtape. This week, Juan Moreno Haines talks about one of his favorite songs, Dear Mama, by Tupac Shakur, and what he’s reminded of when he listens to it.

The first time when I went to prison, when my mom was going through a lot of anxiety, I really wish I was honest with her. But I wasn't. I was still too self-centered. And then she wasn't there the second time.
Juan Haines
