This is a more raw organic angle to Hip Hop but after the studio crispness of the first video I wanted to switch it up. "A Trolly Show" is an ongoing series here San Diego featuring the areas top arts performing impromptu songs on the San Diego Metro Transit system. The show has really been picking up steam and was recently featured on CNN. I'm the first Hip Hop act to make an appearance so that's quite an honor.
