Sunday Scaries Vol. 6

Sunday Scaries Volume 6. Live from the tuna den.    1. Can it Be All So Simple - Wu-Tang Clan   One of my favorite songs from "Enter The Wu-Tang". In it, RZA samples "The Way We Were" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, which I found out when a friend of mine was playing it a few weeks ago. I like "Can it Be All So Simple" because it tells the story of the Wu-Tang clan. Where they started, how far they've come, and what they still were wishing to accomplish at the time of it's release. The music ends around the five minute mark, but the "Intermission" that follows is a must-listen. It features an interview in which Method...

Songs for the Rainy Days

Unfortunately I didn't have time to write a Sunday Scaries last week. I didn't think it was going to be an issue, but ever since then I've been dying to share some music. Luckily, it rained the entire day in Cambridge yesterday, and it's still raining today. People are always complaining about the rain. Someone told me to "stay dry," as we were parting ways, and I think it's the worst piece of advice I've ever received. With every fiber of my being I aim to do the exact opposite. My high school yearbook quote was Bob Marley's "some people feel the rain, others just get wet," and while you may be condescendingly thinking something along the lines of "ohhh duuuude...

Sunday Scaries Vol. 5

Sunday Scaries Volume 5. Live from the tuna den. Very delicious.    1 1. Guantanamera - Wyclef Jean  I threw some Wyclef Jean on last week's playlist, and I got a text today from a very good friend saying that the song "baby" is now their jam, so I'm excited to add this one to the mix. "Guantanamera" was shown to me this weekend by Andy Hatton, one of my best friends in the world. In it, Wyclef samples a cuban anthem with the same name by Celia Cruz. Hatton said that his grandmother, Bela, who escaped Cuba by boat to come to the United States, used to play it in the house all the time. He spoke very fondly...

Never Be Like Them

Let's start at the beginning. You see, before the collaborations, the impending launch of my own made-to-measure luxury menswear brand, and befriending the guy known as “nigel wormboy’ on Instagram, I was simply a fan. I had been listening to Felly (who is now simply "Chris") for years, and as such, I heard about a certain fashion brand started by his friends in Connecticut. As my job entailed discovering new brands around the country boarding them onto a curated marketplace called iVANZi, I jumped on the chance and reached out to Washed. Amazingly, Kyle not only responded, but also called my direct line without any inquiry or hesitation. I gave him my elevator pitch, we talked briefly about our own...

The OG FUH mans

Blind tuna, gerg s.a, ross, Dige, and I were sitting in a hotel room atop manhattan. Tuna was wrestling his keyboard, gerg changing the levels on photos, Dige pacing the room head boppin' while ross and I talked about ideas for up coming releases. A quick conversation struck up and we all shut our various machines down. We spoke about feeling overwhelmed with the changes being brought upon us, in a sense we felt lost in life's trail to wherever. We weren't that pissed so "fuck" was not the proper expression. Finally we came to the conclusion that we were all floating in black space with t-Rex arms gently letting loose a "fuuuuuhhhh." We laughed and mindlessly ventured back into...
