Illa J and Frank Nitt swing through the basement for a candid chat about the new album, the selection of beats and what it’s like recording in the middle of parades, honking cars, midgets and folks walking outside in beat to the recording sessions. We also get to know Illa’s journey as a musician and what it was like growing up in the Yancey house. Nitt breaks down the album and all the amazing guests on the new record “Sunset Blvd” which is out now on Delicious Vinyl. Enjoy this week’s chat! Some great knowledge and tales on this one.

This week has been crazy for me personally. My perspective on life changed a bit due to a sudden health scare. I began to walk more, sit in the shower for longer periods of time and restricted myself from more work. But the camera was still in hand, Metallica came out and heard some Cumbia at my Thursday night gig at Cana, I got to see Jupiter and learn about the solar system at the Observatory, Venice remained beautiful, strangers smiled, strangers continued to pass out drunk on Sunset Blvd., did a set at Dublab and someone flashed her boobs. Welcome to my life in the form of jpegs.
