Imagine being 18. When I was 18, I was hanging out with my crew, gallivanting around town, discovering what life had to offer. Watching DJ Qbert videos, rocking Pumas with fat laces, and rhyming to East Flatbush Tried by 12, I was in a transition period relocating from the San Fernando Valley to Orange County.
Slightly out of sequence (the Blazin’ mixes right below are newer) but I’m sure you’ll forgive me. Here’s the last episode of lunacy from WVFS. Moi on the mix, with Jay-C and the Reverend Slickgrease ably assisting on the talking tip.

Slacking on updates for the last couple of weeks due to an extended New Year hangover, so here’s two weeks’ worth of Diggin’ In The Crates mixes for you. Four hours of classically mixed, classic Hiphop – how can you go wrong? (Long tracklists for both mixes, so get your scrollwheel finger ready…)
‘Show Your Lighters’ is the first video taken from ‘Self Titled’, the new album from Atlanta Hiphop duo Clan Destined, which drops January 22 on iTunes. You can however stream it now on the ‘music/video’ section of www.clan-d.net.
Hailing from “the Big Apple, some call it rotten,” to affectionately quote the up and coming femcee; Nello Luchi, was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY (Bed Stuy to be exact) and reps it her rhymes. This is the first video for her single ‘Got Em’ off of her mixtape “Breathe In”. Nello is also the cousin of the Grammy Award Winner Def Jam artist Chrisette Michele, so it is without a doubt that music runs deep in her soul.
