This is going down, for real, and I can promise it will be super sloppy. The honorable Adam Weiss (Ham on Everything) has invited me to digitally spin an hour-long set of effed up rap music — swag, crunk, hyphy, trap, whatever — at one of my favorite Echo Park dives, The Short Stop. I will be joined by my oldest partner in grime, DJ Crazy Scotty Str8 From Rehab. 10/6 @ 10PM. Free fun.
OF strikes again: wild beats, swaggy raps, palpable hatred for authority. SPIN.
In which I say words like “spineless wimp,” “waffling” and “hallmark.” A.V. Club.
