Green Light V – TR-S Birthday + Treats Volume 1 Release Party [4.1.10]


On April 1st, Miss Lady Soul and I held a special edition of GREEN LIGHT, our monthly party at Sava’s State Street CafĂ©. April’s GREEN LIGHT doubled as my birthday party and the mixtape launch for Treats Volume 1.

To celebrate the occasion, we had Tommey Walker’s artwork on full display in the entrance, as well as custom made treats from Cupcake Station. Towards the end of the night, we gave out advance copies of TV1 and served slices from this huge b-day cake (thanks Sis!)

This night would not have been possible without the incredible staff of Sava’s, and the dedication of the GREEN LIGHT team. Much love to Carlita and E, and thank you to all the friends and family who came out to support!

*Note – April 1st’s GREEN LIGHT was the only place physical copies of the mixtape were available. For a free download of Treats Volume 1, head over to treats.djteddyruckspin.com

Big K.R.I.T. on F.O.K.U.S. Radio [4.10.11]

Before his show at The Blind Pig last night, we had the chance to sit down with Big K.R.I.T. for a F.O.K.U.S. Radio interview. CiCi and myself talked with the MC/Producer about his favorite song on ReturnOf4Eva, his production influences and more.

I had to leave the Pig early to be on air, but from what I heard K.R.I.T. and the rest of the acts tore it down. If you haven’t heard ReturnOf4Eva yet, do yourself a favor and download it for free HERE. By far one of the most inspiring, well rounded projects I’ve heard in a while. Much love to K.R.I.T. and Def Jam!
