I spent way too much this week on music!!!

February 28, 2008

Doing my daily job, visiting record stores in the Mid Atlantic region, (i got the best job ever!!) a few of my friendly neighborhood music retailers put me up on good music. I got Erykah, Lizz Wright, Algebra, and Pete Rock. Now add…

Myspace put me up on Afta-1. The only beats I play on my radio show are from J-Dilla, The Control Freaks, Nasty Nails, and Afta-1. The cd Aftathoughts vol. 1, is that next sh!t in production. His beats are fire, so go cop that!

 John @ CD Warehouse told me about Tweek. Vocalist of the Rurals, this solo joint is so soulful. I found it as an import, that was well worth the money spent.
