Happy Belated Birthday Phonte from The Brooklyn Word.  Tigallo has been in my top 5’s for quite sometime now.  He’s a beast with the wordplay, clever and quick wit it and can do his own background singing in between. Fuxk outta here telling me any different…

A couple of years ago, I pitched a collaborative social media concept to Fusicology and OkayPlayer for the purpose of gaining interest for Foreign Exchange 2013 Brooklyn stop of the tour.  It included contest and email signups and yada yada yada.

For whatever reason, Okay Player fell through so I kicked it off with Fusicology + my long standing collaborative partners at Brooklyn Radio.  The idea was to create a show around an interview.

Personally, I enjoy hearing interviews because I learn various sides to the business, performing, producing and such.  The hard part is that I also have to be the bad guy and cut out sounds that don’t work or don’t work as well.  Only way it would work is if I built the show and the conversation and thats what I did.  I didn’t want to cut out shxt, after all, they are one of my favorite groups to listen to.

So there it is, hit Phonte up on the gram or twitter and salute the brother!
