New release from my man out of the dena!  Solid hip hop production, with heavy vibes all around.  That’s Josh Koslow on the horns, as well.  I’ve always been a fan of this cat’s beats and I’m glad to see this new project coming to fruition.  This is the first track off the upcoming release, “1st Things First,” coming 11.11.11.  Check him out at and keep an eye out for the new album.

Check for it on an upcoming Forward Listening podcast, as well.

Peep the video, too.
