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:
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:
Though I’m not contributing over there anymore, I had fun while I did! theBVX was the first place to let me review mixtapes…
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.
From time to time you’ll catch me writing magazine-ish things for their paperless counterpart to the publication I grew up on.
News and interviews, and basically anything dealing with original content, is what you’ll find from me at DJ Enuff’s website.
I serve as the columnist for their “In the Mix” interview series.
