03/15/13 Conscious Hip Hop Night @ the Gilman

GilmanFlierYours truly will be doing a show with Sean E. Depp of the Understudies at the historical punk rock venue, the Gilman, on 03/15/2013… This is the third monthly event of independent Hip Hop at the venue; I’ve done a guest appearance and last minute set the last two months, and they’ve been really fun. The venue is all-ages, doesn’t sell alcohol (but does sell candy and sodas,) and even has a basketball hoop inside, so it’s perfect to bring your awkward teenage nephew just entering puberty.

Here is the cypher which broke out last month at the end of my comrade Ras Ceylon’s set… the audio is pretty horrible, but the energy is undeniable…

Longevity w/ DJ Shin

I recorded “Longevity” w/ DJ Shin this past August in Osaka, Japan. DJ Shin, DMC World Team Finalist, is a long time comrade of mine, and I was featured on his 2003 “World Famous” compilation album. Although I was in Osaka for less than a week, it was a memorable recording session since we haven’t collaborated in close to a decade.
