sounds beyond splipherfect - a manchester version of Billy Jam needed - urgent for event organizing
Avatar Fri. 4/12/19 7:45pm ADA:

Yes, the San Diego scene is not that big and he was a strong presence... he's a dope drummer and spoken word artist as well! Check out the song with his old group Future Shock, "Diego Days" - personal favorite.
