episode 14: Dart Against Humanity Ep. 89: 45 Over 40


I revisit last week's episode about Bostonian Black & Latinx erasure before launching into my latest piece for Medium's LEVEL 40 Over 40 campaign titled "The 20 Best Rap Albums by Artists Over 40". I explain my process, approach and personal philosophy when it comes to writing pieces like these plus my thoughts on LEVEL's already controversial "The 40 Best Rappers Over 40" list.

episode 13: Dart Against Humanity Ep. 88: Boston Eracism


I dedicated today's episode of Dart Against Humanity to the rampant erasure Boston's Black & Latinx populations have had to endure and its many byproducts, including how we're viewed by Blacks & Latinxs outside of New England unaware that we exist or our many contributions to the culture. This episode was a long time coming.

episode 12: Dart Against Humanity Ep 87: Disclaimer Statement


Last episode was called Non Stop, in this episode I decided to discuss what the aftereffects and realities of going nonstop or hustling your ass off are like. I feel that being completely transparent in this space is the only way to avoid making people in this space or field think in order to achieve success they need to do what I do. Do what works for you.

episode 9: Dart Against Humanity Ep. 84: Small Talk At Columbus & Yarmouth


On today's episode, Dart discusses two articles about sample sources and from earlier this weeks and highlights how beat digging/sample chasing culture has changed vastly over the years in terms of rules, etiquette and protocol plus how he had to reconcile that as an old head and as a journalist who won't cross the line and reveal certain sources himself so as not to put his DJ or producer peers at risk. Hopefully, you enjoy this episode.
