Bay Area Hip-Hop article for Bandcamp


Wrote a little piece for Bandcamp on Bay Area Hip-Hop and 5 of my favorites that are doing quality things in our scene. Check it out and spread it if you dig it…

Everything We Wanted (The 2016 RIP Megamix)


Didn’t have time to make a full mix, so I put this together instead. Obviously couldn’t fit all those fallen this year, so I chose some obvious favorites instead. RIP George Michael, Maurice White, David Bowie, Sharon Jones, Phife Dawg, Rod Temperton, & #Prince. Your music will live forever. Enjoy! #fuck2016


My 2016 Top 13 (in no particular order)…


Just one man’s humble opinion. Not gonna write a buncha blurbs cuz i’m kinda over dissecting music these days. Prefer to just listen and enjoy. The following are the songs that got the most repeats on each album (yes, I think all of these albums are excellent, not just these particular songs, so go and check the whole thing if you haven’t already).

Thanks for peepin’, now go enjoy some incredible music!
