On the day after X-mas 1994, I recorded my first song “A Gangsta Way Of Life” with my group Deathslot (He’s the one who isn’t Juvenile). I used a Tascam Porta 01 with an Ibanez guitar sampler and a cheap casio keyboard my mom got at a garage sale. Coincidently, this is also the day my father died 2 years later in 1996. I honestly don’t give a shit about any self-imposed event such as holidays, but the day after Christmas makes me think about how much I’ve made and what my dad did not get to experience past age 57.
Here’s a Youtube Playlist of 20 songs that inspired me that I want to share with you.
