This episode was was aired during CJLO's #Fundrive event.
In order to raise money for the station, I took requests live on the air and did play a few non-BFTE related tracks.
We managed to get a few of them in, yet still managed to keep the episode "true to BFTE".
Check it out!

Digable Planets - Nickel Bag
DJ Sarasa - Bullet Train (feat. Elzhi, Masia One & Cymarshall Law

Bambu - Gangsta Injunction
Josh Pan & Dumbfoundead - Banned From the Motherland (ft. Simon Dominic, Jay Park, G2)

NOTE: There is a segment where I talk about certain artsits "turning their backs on music". I realize that this is a strong term. I should have said "put their musical careers on hold". I was really tired...'m still not used to this late-night slot!

During the CJLO #Fundrive, I filled in for the K-Man on a Friday night.
Decided to break away from my usual BFTE-routine and "go with the flow" for that evening.
And...that flow happened to be West-Coast Gangsta rap!

After 1 year and 3 months of hiatus, I finally decided to hop back into the studio and delve into the world of BFTE.
When you're away from something that you love, 1 year feels like 5 years.
I walked into the studio with the comfortable and cocky "Yo, I got this" attitude. But as soon as the mic was on...I was a complete mess. I felt like it was my first episode from 6 years ago.
But fear not, I will pick it up again!
Here's the playlist from my not-so-glorious comeback.
Masia One - 88 Vibes
JKey & Rob Nah'msaying- 샤방 SHABANG
Dumbfoundead - Safe
Odessa Kane - Riot
Far*East Movement - Up To No Good (feat. Adrian Delgado)
Jae Jin - Running
Megan Lee - Stronger

Jazmin Sisters - Valentine Heart
Awkwafina x Margaret Cho - GREEN TEA
Hua Li - Faded in the Night
SS Flannel - Love From Los Angeles F. Stepzon, AYEKAY & Yung Lio
