After countless gigs at Small clubs, bars and house parties a loyal following emerged and audiences demanded more. Playing off an ever-growing reputation, 2005 was the launching year his now legendary monthly SF hip-hop party Superfriends (Best Serial Party, SF Weekly Best of 2007), where he shined repeatedly in front of out of town guest DJ’s.
