In August of 2004 I was flown out to L.A. to spin the bboy summit, And what an amazing trip it was. Crews from all over the world come to this event, its like a week long event...and anybody whos into bboy/bgirl culture is there. All the legends like my fam The Floor Lords/ Flava Squad
Grandmaster Caz, and D.S.T were there spinning as well. At one point D.S.T drops Beyonce's crazy in love !?! Now no disrespect to a dj of that stature...but my man...its a bboy jam. Needles to say Asia got on the mic and fixed that real quick.
Now, on with my trip...I called the homie J-ROCC (BEATJUNKIES) to let him know id be in town, so he invited me up to power 106
for Friday Night Flavas (r.i.p) with Mr.Choc, Truly Odd, and C minus. I didnt have serato at the time, so this was all vinyl. I remember getting really really stoned off some cali kush...never do that before going up to the radio !
J-Rocc was kiling shit as usual...whats a trip is people always think Amir and I are from NYC..when we are from Dorchester/Roxbury...
I played joints from Buari, Eddie Grant, Rimshots and some other shit....really all I brought was bboy related records minus a few mellow joints...I think this was also the 1st time Matt Cassell got any burn on the radio...after I played "In My Life" jaws dropped and Mr. Choc was like ...."what the fuccckkkkk izzz that" ? Well, yall should know about Matt by now, after comping that jam on BBE. So, I stumbled on to this mix that somebody had recorded...thank god cuz I never heard it til today !
Anyway heres the link
