Another entry in an ongoing series about the realities, challenges and tactics of spinning records in public for pay…

Rocking a party with The Clash, Digital Underground, James Brown and Beastie Boys qualifies as a good night on the job. Big up @DCShorts.

Got through a night playing pop records without a single Iggy Azalea request. Maybe God is real.

Shoutout to the sister who tipped me $20 so her and her man could canoodle to some brown likka jams. *Billy Dee Williams finger guns*

The kids may be alright, since Kaytranada is barely out of diapers himself. Also, Janet.
