MAGNUM OPUS: JERU THE DAMAJA’S COME CLEAN

Love this song, glad to have been a sound bite in this piece. Jeru is an old drinking buddy of mine, maybe the first rapper besides Everlast to ever hang at Max Fish. This is also one of my all time favorite records. His 1st album is still one of my all time favorites, a stunning moment in time and this song is it’s highlight.
The piece is soulful as hell loving this series.

DEAD MEADOW: THE WORLDS STONIEST BAND

The Old Temple

Dead Meadow maybe the worlds stoniest band. I have seen em live a few times they are superb musicians reminiscent of the band Kyuss an obvious influence on them as is Hendrix, Zepplin and Floyd. They do it they’re own way though and that way is beyond excellent.
There website if totally trippy go smoke a fattie and check it out, just listening to them makes me feel stoned which is enough for me!
