We have had an incredible season full of memorable moments and live events that will go down in the books with some of the best people to ever do it! Speaking of the best, we have an exclusive interview with the Yung Bull “Aske” coming up for this milestone episode!

Without a physical venue, some artists are just learning about streaming and many may find it difficult even, overwhelming, growing, and maintaining an online presence in this absolute stampede of online creators Covid-19 has thrust upon us. My guest today has embodied what it means to “stay grindin” in uncertain times. Aske is one of the hardest working artists hands down and his charisma on and off stage is infectious. Our live podcast event was a sold-out extravaganza at where else but South Sixth Bodega and we had an inspiring conversation about the Tucson scene, taking risks, staying motivated and so much more. Thank you, Aske and the entire 850 gang as well as Cheppe the Taco King and the South Sixth Bodega squad for making all this possible and make sure to continue to support local artists and businesses through these trying times. We’re planning season 2 of the illest podcast in the Southwest and the lineup is gonna be over the top!
