The Independent Police Review Commission of Portland (IPR) has released the findings of its report on the alleged targeting of hip hop shows for code violations and police presence. 
The Commission said that there is an appearance of discrimination, but stopped short of accusing the city of actually discriminating against hip hop performers and venues.
One of the artists interviewed for the investigation was Glenn Waco, a rapper from Saint Johns, who has also been active in the recent protests in Portland against police brutality and the grand jury decision in Ferguson Missouri and New York City.
KBOO's Sam Bouman spoke to Glenn Waco this afternoon about the IPR’s report. 9:38 minutes (8.82 MB)
