One of the many reasons I love SoundCloud ...

... you can stumble upon so many artists from all different backgrounds that possess particular skillsets and talent.  Alic has released a number of different tapes, but this one below in particular piqued my interest the most thus far.  In reference to ' The Abstract Mixtape ' specifically, Alex wrote, " My first body of God inspired music ... enjoy ... I hope it touches you. "

My personal favorites are ' Personal ' - ' Making Progress ' - ' Light ' & ' End Game Interlude ' (that beat is so dope to me too).

Hope you enjoy!

Spotify will drop some gems behind-the-scenes every now and then.  I can appreciate the discover playlists as well as the related artist searches I do any time I find an artist I really enjoy - because that is how you find artists like Chaz French.  French's sound/style is not like anything I have listened to in recent months, so his music is a breath of fresh air to me from the younger generation of rappers.

Some of my favorites from the 'True Colors' album - in no particular order - ' Way Out ' - ' Amerikkka ' - ' Hol' Up ' - ' Off Top ' - ' Young World ' !

A true artist to the core.

I introduce - Fab 5 Freddy

I had the pleasure of interviewing the visual artist and hip-hop pioneer while he was on the road in San Francisco. 

There was so much more I wanted to discuss, but very glad I was able to speak to someone with such a wealth of knowledge on art and culture - definitely loved taking it all in ...   

Please listen to it in its entirety - headphones encouraged - much love!
