Many have stepped through that graffitied door to spit out lyrics. Some with violins, some with saxaphones, some with full bands, most have left with sweat beating down their brows, they got a work out in between those hallowed walls, and in turn The Van got a work out as well. Yet I don’t feel one bit mistaken in saying that these two gentleman with their extremely talented instrumental accompaniments just laid down the new standard for hip hop in The Jam Van.

Sometimes we get moments on this Jam Van Journey that we get to sit in for a conscious second and reflect on what’s going on. Here we were up at the Casper Mattress showroom (random yeah, but just like us, they’re changing the game in their industry) at this beautiful house in the Hollywood Hills and I’m passing a J in between Problem and Drake Bell of all people (it’s California y’all, medicating) and I’m thinking, “damn, how the hell did I go from sitting in a CA Bar study course to standing here?” It’s moments like that where I get chills thinking what could have been had I not stood up and walked out of that class. This was really and truly one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of and I’m excited for what’s to come. The bar has been set, if y’all think you can come in The Van and drop words better than this find us, because we’re only getting started and this ride is only going to get wilder…
