Before becoming a professor, I co-produced and released to two hip hop albums, Black Fire and Manifest Destiny. I’ve been fortunate to share the stage and collaborate with a number of amazing musicians, including Johnny Kengla, Seth Earnest, Manny Quintero, Mark Stepro, Blueprint, Zero Star, K81, and Dav Julca and Johnny “Echo” Julca (now known as XAXO), not to mention my favorite DJ in the entire galaxy, DJ Pos2!
