I'm from Trenton NJ and music has always been my first love. I was influenced very early by the records my parents used to play. The Beatles, Moody Blues, Simon and Garfunkel, Roberta Flack, Stevie Wonder, and Billie Joel just to name a few. My grandmother was a high school music teacher and played violin. My uncle was also a musician and played guitar and was a singer in a folk group. I also used to play the cello and piano growing up but focused most of my time on playing sports. I was an area standout in Baseball. My music collecting began early but with tapes and then CDs. I got the rap bug beginning in 93 when my friends and I discovered Wu-tang Clan. I still remember when my best friend came home after school with a copy of Enter The 36 Chambers. My mind was blown and a love of hip hop was cemented from that day forth! Skipping ahead it was quite awhile before I actually got into records. Other than baseball l was a huge comic book nerd growing up and had dreams of becoming a comic book artist. The vinyl bug took grip about 10 years ago and it's only continued to become even more of a passion and an obsession. I'm a true digger in the sense of the word. I get my records pretty much from anywhere and everywhere I can find them. The search for me is almost as thrilling as finding those rare gems, but at the end of the day it's really all about the music.
