Wheeew! Right before heading into the basement for this show I came straight from a gig in DTLA and recorded two podcasts along the way then went into the studio and it was my cool down time!

It’s about that time! Grammy campaign to create the buzz for the awards show later in the month. Remember when I appeared next to SnoopRihanna, Nas and Taylor Swift on this ad? I do! Ha. Anyhoo, I am digging these new campaign ad’s that allow you into the artist’s lives. I saw a cool one on Kendrick but this one caught my attention. It’s great to hear JB talk about watching dj’s and then becoming one.  Watch!
