I spent last week in Los Angeles and just like I say after every trip there, half of the city is awesome and half is horrible. I’ll spare you the lowlights, but on the positive tip, shout to all the folks I spent time with: at ESPN’s LA office, at the Hard Knock TV annual 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and at the BET Awards functions. Despite losing in the championship game of the hoops tourney, we had a great time and we’re definitely looking forward to the next one. Along with hoops, the other highlight was definitely a trip to Disneyland. I hadn’t been in about 20 years since I was a little kid and it really is the happiest place on earth. Go there, with or without kids. You’ll have a great time.
As for this week’s SNSS, you already know what it is. Dope music from folks like Dom Kennedy, Fiend, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Drake, Kanye, Wale, The Bullitts, Mac Miller, Asher Roth, Bas, Lion Babe, Shad, TiRon & Ayomari, and more. Plus, the young homies, Brothers From Another, joined us in the studio. Be sure to check out their new Tacos On Broadway EP (features include Sol, Dave B, Thaddeus David, and Asher Roth) right here. They’re definitely a group to look out for, not just in Seattle, but on a national level.
Enjoy the show!
