Goods is one of the best botiques in the nation. Respected world wide. I'm honored they've asked me to be a part of their celebration at the HG Lodge on 4.23.11. I'll be spinning with my dude Fourcolorzack. We just rocked Canada together last weekend. This guy is without no doubt one of my top 5 dj's period. This night is guaranteed to be the serious jump off.

Growing up as a teenager in Seattle, Washington in the 80's we had only one station that played "Rap" music. I believe it was the only station in the nation besides Mr. Magic's "Rap Attack" that had a specialty all rap music radio show. It was a 2 hour specialty show that aired on the AM dial at 1250 with the call letters KFOX. You must remember this was a time when they didn't even offer a rap section at the record stores yet! This was a very popular radio program and I can remember everyone couldn't wait until Sunday night to see what new joints DJ Nasty Nes Rodriguez was going to play. We would record the shows on cassette tape and play them at school on our ghetto blasters every Monday.
Just the other day me and Jake One were discussing how back then we had to wait all week until Sunday night to hear a new song. Nowadays you can simply go to your computer and google search it or you tube it to hear it or watch the video. You kids are lucky these days and don't even know it! This particular show i'm posting up featured a local up and coming dj by the name of Sir Mix A Lot. He had recently obtained a "DMX" drum machine and brought it by the station to play some live beats. This show aired on 9.21.85

As a courtesy to give the general public an idea of what to expect musically at a "Hot Peas & Butta" party we've created this promo dj mix with sets from Skeme Richards, King Otto and of course Me. All original 45 rpm vinyl records were used.
