Sometimes when you’re halfway home, your pager is STILL blowin’ up.  Unfortunately, if you have BBQ sauce on your fingers, you don’t want to check it because you’ll ruin your freshly creased khakis.  Please, be safe this holiday season and don’t Q and drive.  Volume 6 of the You Gots To Grill mix series is giving you an overhand slap like you stole something.  Don’t forget to cop 1-5 HERE.

This Sunday we’re kicking off a Summer monthly Sunday Funday situation.  If you wanna hear some dope music, drink a tasty cocktail and maybe play some corn hole with a burger in one hand, we’ve got the party for you.  No fist pump, no long lines just chilling. Rain or shine, we can cover the patio!

I hit the road in June for a week-long tour and covered both coasts.  Thanks to everyone that put me on.  I’m including a grip of photos but be sure to check the full album HERE.  There was almost as much eating as DJing so excuse the food photos.  Anyone who knows me knows I love to get down on some food.  Look out for my FOOD BLOG launching soon…

It’s that time of year again… Grab a 40, throw some ribs on the grill and leave your 9 at home because Summer is here. Every BBQ needs a soundtrack so here it is. “You Gots To Grill – Volume 3 – Grillmatic” is the 3rd installment in my annual Summer BBQ mix series. It’s a fresh mix of some feel good, semi-gangster Summer chunes for you to enjoy. Wipe your mouth…

I’ve been hella busy and traveling quite a bit so I apologize if I haven’t kept up with the blog posts 100%.  I just got back from playing at Bank in Barrie (Toronto), Ontario and 2 weeks ago I was at Dusk Atlantic City.  Look out for those recap posts shortly as well as a new mix for a sneaker & hat blog.  In the mean time, this blast is chock full of pics, info, 2 mixtapes and a remix

Free Mixtape Downloads!

First up, I just dropped a mixtape for the blog White Folks Get Crunk.  Chock full of crunk gems, myself, KosherKuts (Cleveland) and blog creator DJ Real Juicy (Illinois) put this together for your 40 drinking enjoyment.
