Snow In The South

A rare occurrence in the southern United States. We saw this strange white shit seven years ago...ish. This time earth took the necessary steps to make sure we enjoyed the start of winter. Boredom, a stash of beats with nothing but time and I'm bound to create something. 

P.S. I hate snow. 

@BeasNChill Sun, Feb. 5th

Love how Central Florida always seems to open its doors to me. If you happen to be in the Tampa Area this Sunday, Feb 5th come out for the show @ The Bricks in Ybor. Been wanting to play this show for the last half year they've been running it so Ive got something cool planned for the people of Tampa. 

New Art Alert!!!!!!!!!

Keeping my hands in multiple pots as always. Working on a cool series of Peanuts inspired Jazz pieces. Keep a look out for more art and music coming soon... Might post a few of these to the merch page once I get a few more painted. This one = Mines.

Jamz: Gat$ - By Any Dreams

With what I believe to be his 4th project, "By Any Dreams", Tampa native Gat$ delivers some of his best work to date. One of the biggest pieces of criteria I judge new music by is how relatable it is. Though we are all different individuals that experience life in many different ways being human we are all more intimately connected than one may think. Loss, doubt and insecurities plague us all at some point, adding to our fire or crumbling our foundations. "By Any Dreams" is an up and down journey of a young black male in America finding himself not only in his dreams but depression, women, the loss of his grandmother and the constant presence of social injustice on our nightly news. One thing I love about Gat$ is his ability to take you to very real dark places while simultaneously delivering a sound that refuse to give in to those same feelings and experiences. With Production credits from Black Metaphor (Dope ft. SKYXXX & Bizzy Crooks), Wrathmatics (White Lighter), TGDJ (Fools Gold/Dream Catcher), fellow Tampa locals Santos and Vern Sr. (Better Daze, Stolen Future) and a few self produced interludes (act won, act too, act rite) Gat$  delivers one of the most solid LP's Ive heard all year. Definitely take the journey and press play! 

Chops

Doing what I can to make music a few times a week since dropping States in March. New music is life and I can't wait to share what I've been working on. Linking with a few artist getting my production credits up so be on the look out! #I 

Jamz: Digi ft. Chris Rose - We Be Dilla #2 On My Game - 1996 (prod. J.Dilla)

One of my favorite artist at the moment, Digi of Ziplock Music, has been killing since the release of his self produced ep "White Raven". Producing fellow Ziplock MC Prolix's debut "Its A Matter of Time" lp and continuing to deliver solid instrumentation and lyrical dominance on tracks like 'Hear Nothing'. Can't lie, I'm a little late on catching #1 in his new series of tracks titled 'We Be Dilla' where the Cali native spits over remixed DIlla gold. BUT my ignorance is rewarded with this second delivery featuring fellow Cali native Chris Rose. I hear big things in the future for Digi and the whole squad over at Ziplock Music. Stay up to date with what I anticipate will be a continuing series @ www.WeBeDigi.com

Saltus River Grill: Sushi Time!!!

I'm a foodie. I'm a hiphophead. I'm an artist and producer. And for some reason I picked up a camera at a young age and can't shake it off. Some days balancing all these sides of myself gets crazy. Today I find peace!! If you are in southern South Carolina make sure to stop by @saltusrivergrill and ask for Justin!
