Sometimes i think I should have went to weird college. Antioch had that graffiti student union and real cool laws that encouraged dirty talk.
And then there is Oberlin which never seems to sleep on the raps, and also the rock n rolls. Saturday, May 14th, Slick Rick the freakin’ Ruler will play Oberlin along with the new Ed Mcmahon, Questlove , Bill Fox, Columbus’s Andrew Graham & the Swarming Branch and more as part of Jackfest
A bunch of Oberlin bands and others like the Born Ruffians are also peforming.

No I’m not on the Deal this week. When you ask? Not Yet.
But in the meantime I’m geeked to watch tonight’s episode at 3am hosted by Memphitz and DJ Diamond Cutz:
It’s Throwback Thursday so The Deal’s got that classic hip-hop coming to your area code. We’re recapping the Fresh Fest with rap legends in the game and we’re featuring true school videos like only we can! It’s all going down on The Deal!
