Sending love out to Brotha Sean aka DJ Ceiba, who recently became a father. Ceiba is a Harlem-based drummer, DJ, and producer. He puts together jarring, head-nodding beats, fusing Reggae, Latin, and Hip-Hop influences. Ceiba flirts with some samples but relies mostly on his own musicianship.

I am often faced with the question of what it means to be a Hip-Hop artist from Wyoming.
“There’s Hip-Hop in Wyoming?”
“Where is that?”
"Damn, are there folks of color up there?"

“Not getting shot by a rancher?”
"Wow, isn’t that like the most conservative state in the country?"
