Peace Good Peoples!
April has been a complete
whirlwind of wonderfulness. Giving lots of thanks for the packed schedule
and the privilege of bringing joy and change to the world through music! From
the Hip Hop Re:Education Project rocking Bed-stuy to Berlin to DJing weddings to
mixing the new album to keeping the groove lovely at M.O.B., it's been a blessed
spring. This week is no exception!
On Tuesday, I've got the honor of sitting in as resident MC with legendary
DJ/Composer/Filmmaker/Professor ROB SWIFT of the X-Ecutioners
at his Turntablism Class for the New School at Scratch Academy.
Pretty awesome that this legendary music program has leapt into the realm of Hip
Hop, and that they tapped one of the most influential DJs of all time to be the
instructor, and that he reached out to me to be a part of it. Say Word!
This Wednesday, April

for about 4 months:
