This week, T&A Records released The Unruly Remixes, an EP full of remixes of Baltimore club classics remixed by the likes of DJ Sliink, Nadastrom, Tittsworth and others. I’m thrilled they included my remix of Scottie B’s “Niggaz Fightin”. The original was a staple of me and Apt One’s Philadelphyinz parties at The Khyber and Medusa, alongside other Unruly classics like DJ Class “Tear The Club Up”, Debonair Samir “Samir’s Theme”, Scottie B’s “African Chant” among many others. It’s an honor to be a part of this project.
I joined Scottie on DJ Ayres’s Small Talk podcast yesterday as well. Our lil chat about the roots of club music, the evolving role of the DJ, football, the specifics of urban decline and Jewish assimilation will be out soon. Nerd shit son!
Anyways The Unruly Remixes are out now. Download some of them for free or be a sport and cop on iTunes.
Hey check it out — FACT Mag wrote up Zara Work Pants in their weekly mixtape roundup and the good folks at RedEye in Chicago did a little interview with me.
Also the site is fuckin up right now in a few ways. None of my gigs are showing up. I’ll fix this next week.
The third volume of my Chobani and Adderall mix series is out today. Zara Work Pants is hosted by THE KID MERO and features tracks from Young Dro, Gucci Mane, Fat Trel, Future, Rome Fortune and a lot of others. Also features a bunch of new re-edits from me and additional wisdom from Hennessy Youngman.

On the occasion of Danny Brown’s Old coming out next week, I threw together this ~35 min mix of some of his guest verses and some remixes.
It was originally a lot longer but I decided to ditch his pre-2011 rappity-rap stuff … it didn’t feel like it vibed with now-classic shit like “Blueberry” and “Terrorist Threats”. Hope you like!
Yup! Thanks to the No Request posse for having me out. I think there’s video/pix to come.
I went on the Sway in the Morning show on Shade45 today and played a little set of #buttmusic. You can check out the mix here!

I’ve been working with the Bill de Blasio campaign for mayor and trying to get involved where I can. My friend Zoila (of Mayimba Music among other things) put together this fundraiser and I will be playing rap and old r&b and probably “Blurred Lines” at least once. Hope to see yall there.
