When I showed up at the studio, they weren’t quite done interviewing David Faustino, and that was only the beginning of the madness. I decided it was appropriate for me to reblog this here at PTO because there is an extensive discussion of my outfit, in addition to the discussion of Bay Area hip-hop (Rappin 4-Tay, JT The Bigga Figga, E-40, etc) and some thoughts on Kanye. Enjoy!
