I got approached to do Soul Sessions quite awhile ago by Mitchell Bitanga aka Remitch.

Soulsessions is one of the still Existing DOPE parties in LA, ailment in the same vein as the historic rootdown and Do Over, where good music and good vibes is the top priority.

All in all I would say it was a good nite ;) A average normal crowd of 400 doubled to about 800 to party with me for my inaugural LA set on this last west coast run…

I hit them with a modified “Originals set” – being on a west coast “TOUR” – made me doing an “ALL VINYL SET difficult, and when I do a real Originals set, best believe its all vinyl. This time around I had to use some mp3’s so I wouldn’t get hit with the extra luggage / hurt my back syndrome.

It’s Been QUITE Some time since I’ve released a New Podcast, being on the road makes it very difficult to record.

Lucky for me and you and your cousin too, The soul Sessions guys were recording the set – So here it is for your listening pleasure –

LIVE FROM THE SOULSESSIONS – a little over an hour of my rocking for LA.

You will here some familiar stuff of course – A lot of these people want me to do stuff I do on my MIXTAPES, so there are some signature songs and transitions I drop.

BUT – I also do some stuff I’ve never done before (preview to the next “original” PERHAPS??? – shhhhh)

Anyway, I hope y’all enjoy it as much as the crowd in LA did .

A great time was had in the SD as always , getting to see Kuttin Kandi and enjoy the environment with Emily. Even the Hotel Room at the THE PEARL was crazy, with everyone having its own beta fish, and the personalization of a welcome letter to greet us when we got in – its all about the details…

That’s him and myself in the pic above.Does the name ring a bell for you??

Well if you are a fan of my mixtapes it should.

Although I get a LOT of props for what I do, treatment I am nowhere near the innovator (although I do put my own twitst on an old favorite if I do say so myself ;))

I got a lot of my blending style from listening to Mixtapes that were ON ACTUAL CASSETTES – Ones in particular made by the Duo of G-Bo the Pro and Rei Double R.

i was influenced SO much by them , I actually gave them a shoutout on one of my earliest Mixtapes – Sweeet .

Sweeet . The 1st of Neil’s Lovey Dovey Mixtapes that have set a standard for good music to cupcake too.

Click above for more info ;) Feel FREEEE to leave a comment or two as well please;)

From Flushing to Madison Square – me & my old boss in some new documentary…

This year I’ve moved on from the 3 stripes of the Blueprint to the 3 stripes of Adidas, sovaldi but there are still remnants of my days wearing all black everything surfacing in the public consciousness on the daily.

Recently a new Short Film has been making its rounds –

ABSOLUT® VODKA UNVEILS “NY-Z” – A SHORT FILM FEATURING LEGENDARY ARTIST AND NATIVE NEW YORKER JAY-Z
Director Danny Clinch and Hip-Hop Icon Pay Tribute to New York City with Black & White Short Film; Latest Creative Collaboration from World’s Most Iconic Vodka
NEW YORK (March 22, 2010) – Today, as part of an ongoing creative collaboration with JAY-Z and Madison Square Garden (MSG), ABSOLUT® VODKA introduces “NY-Z” – a 14-minute short film featuring JAY-Z and directed by popular music and culture photographer Danny Clinch. Featuring exclusive footage of JAY-Z and John Mayer as they prepare for the September 11 benefit concert at MSG, NY-Z offers a rare glimpse into the life of native New Yorker Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter as he discusses his hometown and what it means for an artist to “arrive” with a performance at the world’s most famous arena. The short film is available for viewing at facebook.com/ABSOLUT.

At that time I was still running around the world on the 1’s and 2’s for jay, so yours truly has appearances peppered throughout the documentary.
