Mixtape: OnCue - Can’t Wait
OnCue’s latest mixtape is simply fantastic. For those who know me personally, you’re probably aware that I’ve been working closely with OnCue and his team for the last 8 months aiding in any way that I can. I do this because I truly believe in his music and that’s something that is hard to come by in today’s musical climate. We currently have 2 dates left on a 34 date national tour which he co-headlined and where I’ve had the privelege of being his DJ. We’ve all put our heart, soul and endless nights into this project. Enjoy.
Taking A Time Out for The Pledge To Rage Tour
I’ll be on tour with OnCue for the next several weeks, so this little blog of mine will be taking a long hiatus. In it’s place, I will be reblogging from my dude PDA’s tumblr (www.pledgetoeat.tumblr.com) which will be updating our adventures in eating while on tour. Enjoy.

Florence and The Machine – Shake It Out (The Weeknd Remix)
So this is what Florence would sound like if she lived in a drug induced state of darkness like The Weeknd seems too.
Rostam - Wood
Vampire Weekend/Discovery’s producer and random instrument playing guy Rostam Batmanglij shows off his middle eastern roots with a new gem of a record.
Pusha T – Don’t F**k With Me
Chappelle Show, all them Neal Brennans, sketch comedy, who is for real penning?
Video: jj – “Your Love” - Acoustic (The Outfield Cover)
As a DJ, I can say that I’ve had to play this Outfield joint in one way shape or another at about 80% of my gigs over the years. I also despise it in almost every way. In almost every way except for the acoustic version that jj’s frontwoman performs on this video. It’s exceptionally beautiful.
Video: Azealia Banks - 212
I caught this video over the weekend and was a bit blown away. This girl is incredibly talented. Harlem’s on a roll these days.
Big K.R.I.T. ft. 2 Chainz, 8Ball and MJG - Money On The Floor
Krit has never failed me.
Video: OnCue - All The Way
My dude Cuey released the visuals for his latest track off his forthcoming Can’t Wait mixtape. Ain’t Greenpoint, Brooklyn pretty?

Video: Meyhem Lauren - I Can’t Win
I like seeing these young NYC dudes all fuckin’ with each other. Meyhem Lauren’s got bars too. Next level video concepts though? Not so much. But who really cares.
