Extra Credit with DJ Zimmie
DJ Zimmie interviews veteran DJs (and the occasional producer or performers) to get their story and hopefully familiarize younger DJs and the general public with DJs they should know about. Always good info about what to do in your career, what not to do and usually where to eat when you're out of town. A must-listen for any up-and-coming DJs.

I'm a nerd.  I love hip-hop and I’m a grown ass man, but I’m a nerd.  I love researching and reading the stories behind things, watching documentaries, etc.  For this reason, Brian Coleman is the shit.  Brian has been a music journalist for a long time but I first heard about him from his book Check The Technique.  Through his books Brian has essentially written the liner notes which previously didn’t exist for 60+ hip-hop albums.  If you’re a hip-hop fan, some of these albums are undoubtedly your favorites.

Brian was in town to do a signing for Check The Technique Volume 2 and was gracious enough to swing by my house for an interview.  Listen to his story and cop his publications.
