Crayon Beats is a really fresh blog that has supported what we've been doing at Uncommon and lots of other great music. Recently Tiffology (one of the two Tiffany's that run the site) sat down with Nasa aka Adam Warlock for a long form interview that touched on a variety of subjects. Topics that came up included Yule Prog, Dark Weapons (from Mars), Nasa's work with Short Fuze, Occupy Wall Street and how Nasa orders his burgers (plus, much more). Nasa reveals a few things through out the interview about his upcoming solo projects and label projects that hadn't been previously discussed as well. Check it out.
