One of my proudest moments as an artist for sure. Gave a 15 minute speech on the notion of "The City" and why Philadelphia and it's music history has meant so much to me over the years. From The Emancipation Proclamation to the Philadelphia Orchestra, to Lady B to Jazzy Jaff to my DJ contemporaries, an open ended and unscripted discussion about the allure of Philadelphia's music culture, and how the past meets the present for me daily. Thank you E Bond for making all this possible. Highlight day for me…big time…I'm honored to have participated.
