My friend Spekulation has made a name for himself as a dope MC. He is also really good a remixing music to use as beds for his flows. Check out his killer album The Bite, which features some of Seattle’s best young jazz, soul and R&B musicians. He’s working on a new album now with my friend Nate Omdal and DJ Absolute Madman which should be out soon. Check out videos of their rehearsals here.

Yesterday he posted a new clip he was messing around with on my Facebook page. He cut up the version of “Love For Sale” from my new CD “No More, No Less”, and put it underneath “Life’s a Bitch” by Nas & AZ. Check it out:

I love acoustic bass lines behind hip hop beats, a la “A Tribe Called Quest.” Sounds cool.
