Its Tuesday March 14th 1995 the OJ Simpson Trial is going on and we're getting ready for a hot summer in Northern Cali. My big bro Tim hits one of the local record stores and cops 'In A Major Way' by @e40 and Me Against The World by #2Pac. He comes to school unusually excited, talking about how dope these 2 albums are but in particular how crazy @e40's flows are and how his beats slap in his 65' Mustang. But it would eventually be #2Pac's 'So Many Tears' that he has on repeat like everyone else attending the Ice Cube Concert @sleeptrainarena formally #ArcoArena. Big Bro continues to play this song for the rest of the summer and beyond and it would be this song that we play to remember him after he's taken from us in 1997. So I dedicate this mix of @e40's 'Da Bumble' & #2Pac's 'So Many Tears' to a Vacaville, Ca #707 Northen Cali, Solano County Legend, My Big Brother Timothy 'Evil-T' Littlepage.

On this episode of the Sum'n To Say podcast we are joined by the incomparable DJ Wally Sparks to talk about his roots here in Atlanta and his epic R&B party The Groove. Wally also opines about the nature of "fickle" music fans. Is NYC still the mecca of hip-hop? Can meccas move? We dive into that topic as well. Also, Soulja Boy is a political activist (not really, but kinda?)
