Steven Willis – “The Hustle Speaks”

Performing at the Button Studio

“I supply everything, even the pipe dreams. That’s why ballplayers pass the ‘rock’ and the rappers ‘cook it up’ in the lab. I’m the ‘base’line in that jazz, the ‘rock’ in their roll and I’m always in the background when shit goes up in ‘smoke.’”
