Previously scheduled to perform with Mr. Mtukudzi, Rich Medina unfortunately will not be participating in our event on January 12th, 2013 due to a scheduling conflict. Rich extends his sincerest apologies to The Painted Bride, Mr Mtukudzi, all fans and the press for the error on his part. Those who know Rich know that he is a true professional at day’s end, and in the spirit of ensuring a successful and well represented event on January 12th, Rich has worked closely with Bride to curate an extremely credible alternative to himself, which consists of fellow Philly DJs and Afro global music lovers Brother Onaci, Lil’ Dave and Junior.

Shouts to Jon Carluccio and Dub Spot for giving me the opportunity to interview Booker T. Jones as the first installment of my Dub Spot Interview Series; On A Mission. Incredible day for me, made even better by getting a personal letter from the brother over Christmas. Enjoy.

 

Great way to start the year.

Make It Fast, Make It Slow…

My first time doing poetry on stage in Philly in over 7 years, and I was blessed to be invited by the ever amazing Anthony Tidd, and Philly’s own living legend, Ms. ursula Rucker. To call this an honor would be a severe understatement. So fucking great. Stay tuned for more mic business from your man going forward.
