Had to kick things off with something from the recently released Farewell, My Friend (Available for free download). It’s been so heartwrenching watching (from afar) as Thes One moves through the stages of grief over the loss of his dear friend, Double K.

Then, a little bit of hip hop before kicking it old school for the second half of the show as we celebrate Black History Month.
