On Sunday I took the opportunity to crash the last day of recording for Common Market's new "Tobacco Road" album. From what I heard, this soulful hiphop album will be an instant classic.

Highlights of the day:

  • Ra Scion writing a verse and hook for a song on the spot.
  • A group sing-a-long of "Umbrella" with Geo of the Blue Scholars playing guitar.
  • Sabzi killing the piano on an outro for the album's title track.

Catch me tomorrow at Neumos to watch Sabzi compete against the nation's best producers in the Red Bull Big Tune Beat Battle national championship.
