Sweet Alternative Rock

Never judge a book by its dust jacket. On the surface, “Sweet Alternative Rock” would appear to be an odd choice for me, considering I am a rap musician by trade, but I was fortunate enough to have a killer collage radio station to listen to in high school, back when collage radio was “a thing.” Ah, the sickly sweet aroma of nostalgia…
