Exponentially fresh.

I do a lot of things besides update this little site right here. In case you were curious about my other work…

BrooklynBullshit.com: Owner, founded in July 2012. Content covers exclusive interviews and music, video, photos, and written editorial pieces which span many topics such as news, food, music, sports, and more.


I have been a Blogger and Contributing Writer at HipHopDX since September 2007. During that time I  have written hundreds of blogs, interviews, news stories, features, and album reviews. Below are some of my favorites:

Mixtape Review: Elzhi “ELMatic”

Feature Interview: Immortal Technique

Album Review: Capone N Noreaga The War Report 2

Album Review: Royce Da 5’9 Success Is Certain


You’ll catch me at TheWellVersed with the occasional album review, news story, or participation in a “Tens” list, but more often than not I end up doing interviews over there. I think you might like these:

Interview: DJ Premier Part 1, and Part 2

Interview: Donnis

Interview: Torae Part 1, and Part 2


Though I’m not contributing over there anymore, I had fun while I did! theBVX was the first place to let me review mixtapes…

Review: Donnis’ “The Invitation”

Review: Eminem Recovery

Review: Rakaa Crown of Thorns


I contributed at Dallas’ site before I was even legally old enough to drink or get into good clubs. This was where I started to learn to develop my attitude in written form into a wit that was knowledgeable, aggressive, entertaining, and yet not overbearing. It has been some years since I wrote at his site, but you should definitely keep an eye on his blog in the present day, as his content is top notch.
