a new "old" mixtape from me: "In Effect Mode" (recorded in May '07)

May of '07: i was fuckin around in the early part of a set i was doing on 4 turntables with the homie Kurupt at Red Fez in Austin, Texas and i went into some new jack swing for a little while. the shit came off better than i could've imagined so i decided to throw a few of my favorites together in the mix and VOILA!!!

other than posting it on myspace and in the comment sections of blogs i frequent like The Smoking Section, Okayplayer,, Nah Right and a few others, plus a few burned copies for immediate friends and associates, it hadn't really been heard too much until my homie Janee at gave it the spotlight last Friday in her Soulful blog. (thanks a million shawty!!!)


i decided to have P (the genius behind my "Lake Minnetonka" mixtape cover) work her magic again. i knew i wanted to play off of Al B. Sure's debut album but i couldn't dig up any old pics of me from when i was rockin' my curly box fade back in the day, lol...
