Me and the homie Gerald [Art vs Commerce] have been planning and waiting for a minute to find the right spot to do this joint. We finally found it at Cause right off of U Street. We did a pilot run of this concept there a few weeks back and had a blast. Plus, the food is on point over there, so it makes for a cool hook-up spot……..dinner and a movie….and a DJ.

I finally landed a residency on H Street, and it happens to be at one of the nicer venues in the Atlas Theatre District as well. Each and every Tuesday you can catch me spinning a happy hour set from 5-8pm at The Elroy for Sushi Tuesdays. Sushi Chef Seneca Hill (from Sticky Rice) will be there at 6pm creating special custom sushi dishes for your enjoyment. And as always….it’s free to get in.
I’m not gonna lie….I had no idea how dope Berlin is. I hope these images do some justice. Shouts out to BeatRevolution, Sandra, and the homie Jumaa for showing me a good time out there. And for the Burger King that was still open when I arrived in the city late at night….starvin’!
