I Am Top Shelf

this is what I'm up to. and a few things i find cool.

One of my favorite songs ever

This made my week. The video is epic.

Last year I recorded a conversation that I had with my brother/friend James Woods. This was right after we came back from New Orleans. The place where we, along with other friends, met in college and grew with each other. After we listened back we had over 30 minutes of material and couldn’t figure out what to do with it. But I still felt what he was saying needed to be heard. Here is part of it. None of this has been mixed or anything. This is what it is in the rawest form. I may eventually release the rest of them. Some of the most honest conversation we have ever had. Stay Top Shelf…

Check me out. Nervous as fuck in the Beats Not Streets Beat Battle. I had a good time. I entered with the Peta Tosh “Plane” beat. Plan on entering again and maybe giving a lil more of a show. It was my first time. 

You perfectly perfect for me what the fuck is this practice?

I swear I don’t listen to my own music but this song feels so right. Made the beat after meeting Pharrell and they were dead on capturing the feeling of the track. We didn’t even discuss it. Just provided the canvas and Cyph and Lu painted an amazing picture. Parallel feat. MaryGold “Good Morning”. 

Great interview. Snoop x Skateboard P
