Chilltime, produced by longtime collaborator Lester Mendoza, AKA Trakshun, was originally supposed to appear on The Showcase, an album I was working on in LA in 2009. Though the album was shelved, many of the tracks have been made available for release since. This however, marks the first official release of Chilltime.

In the tradition of sunny day, backyard BBQ rap, Chilltime fuses a smooth melodic beat, composed by Trakshun, alongside raps that harken a laid-back Ludacris with a Bradley Nowell (Sublime) inspired hook. Summer is finally here. Relax. Enjoy.
