Welcome to another edition of Po Politickin. In this episode we politick San Diego producer/rapper Weshaven.
Weshaven was born in 1980 and grew up all over San Diego. His mother moved to
Portland Oregon in 1989 and during trips to visit her in his early teens he had chances
to run sound at some of the smaller gigs she was playing. With a love for music and
lyrics from an early age these live interactions with blues musicians really sparked a fire
inside him. He began writing around this time, but didnʼt take it seriously until his senior
year in high school. About a year later he attended a school in Los Angeles for sound
engineering. There he had an opportunity to learn on professional equipment and intern
in real studios recording many types of music.
Fast forward a decade or so. After engineering in multiple studios, playing some of the
biggest and smallest venues in Southern California, gaining and losing sponsorships,
opening for artists such as Redman, WC, Killah
