They say you can't go home, but one Saturday night in Aug. '07, I drove to East Lansing to kick it w/ DJ Collectives on the Cultural Vibe, my old stomping grounds. I was a host/ DJ on the show from Jan. '99 - Apr. '05, and still periodically return to do a guest set. This is one of the sets I played that night containing a few '07 era bangers, but mostly classic 80's and 90's rap - my bread & butter. There were a few gaffes, but I think its a pretty solid "off the head" set - live, all wax. Transitioning from "Funky Child" into "Headbanger," my needle skipped, and I lifted the needle RIGHT OFF of BDK "Raw" while it was playing. I "hot shotted" (a wrestling term - Google it) a couple of the mixes just barely blending to the next song, and even played "Tried By 12" at 45RPM to make it work... just because! Special guests that night in the studio hanging out were Magestik Legend, FOS, and my man Self Says, who I ate "slingers" with after the show (burgers with fried eggs on them).
