Best Digging Story:
Don’t really have a great digging story, but one that was memorable was when me and Mayer Hawthorne went digging in a hood in in California at a gentlemen’s garage. It was a day or two after Barack Obama got elected president. I came up on a nice stash of some really dope records and the gentleman bought EVERY copy..im talking..stacks and stacks of the LA Times newspapers right after Obama got elected and got get a mint copy as well. Historical moment for me.
