Proudest Moment In The Music Industry || The Combat Jack Show; for over four years we have been given the Internets Hip Hop 101 classes week in & week out. I never look at it as a interview show we are having conversations, barbershop talk at its finest. To have a hand in and shaping what the show is today makes me very proud, these episodes will last forever. Shouts to my brother Combat Jack, AKing, Jonathan Mena and the entire Combat Jack Show Team & most of all to my brother Dallas Penn who brought me on the show in the beginning & believed in me when many didn’t.
Classic Song || Hypnotize x Notorious B.I.G.
Favorite Nightlife Spot || Had to be when I was a youngin’, The Tunnel, downstairs was heaven say no more. The unisex bathrooms also were a club of it’s own lol.
