206UP and Jae Change have collaborated to form 28Hundred, a new media company dedicated to producing original video content and in-depth, personality-driven interviews with some of your favorite artists. Stay tuned here for the latest 28Hundred productions.

For 28Hundred’s latest trick, Jae and I managed to talk our way into interviewing producer/composer Adrian Younge — favored R&B, soul and hip-hop renaissance man — for Passion of the Weiss, one of my absolute favorite hip-hop sites in the world. Owner, editor and journalist Jeff Weiss even let me write a few words and you can read all of those, here. As far as Adrian Younge goes, he was cool as a cucumber and his new collaboration with seminal Bay Area outfit Souls of Mischief is more than worth your time. Check out their There Is Only Now, here.
