1 Luv 1 Goal 1 World
1 World International Magazine is a new quarterly underground magazine that includes a free ''1 World'' DVD and ''Timing is Everything'' CD. It’s published by Cesar Garrido-Ramirez (Mr Ceza) out of the Bay Area. This magazine is designed to be a platform for domestic and international independent artists. It is loaded with reviews and dope articles. I got my hands on the first issue thanks to DJ LuvvaJ (KAOS) of Olympia, Washington.
The vivid colors caught my eye right away. As I began turning the pages, I could fee the spirit, energy and love put into the publication. The layout is brilliant, even down to the quality of the paper used.

The Biggest Podcast
(click pix to read, click to get back)
During my past 36 years in the biz, I've been interviewed many times over &
I never get tired of sharing my story!
Recently, I did one of the BEST interviews ever in "The Biggest" podcast show,
hosted by Miguel Rockwell & Joe Hawkins!
You'll hear how I learned to DJ, who taught me and how I became an on-air radio personality. How I met Mix-A-Lot, my first encounter with Mix at the Boys club with Ed Locke (we were the only 2 Asians in the bldg), who started NASTYMIX Records and where the name NASTYMIX came from.
How I still feel so bad (yes, to this day) about getting kicked out of Seattle Prep high school — I reveal what I did & why it was so wrong — and about losing my mom to cancer when I was 18.
How I got to be on Eazy-E's "Radio," my history with Jerry Heller & The World Class Wrekin Cru, my history at 1250 KFOX in 1980 and the FreshTracks show intro
from The Emerald Street Boys to Sir Mix-A-Lot.
Why I got fired at KFOX, how KCMU Rap Attack started in 1988 on the condition that Shockmaster Glen Boyd would be my co-host and the birth of KUBE 93's HotMix on Sat night with NUMBER ONE ratings.
Plus you'll hear rare recordings of me on KFOX & KCMU and two original Quick mixes I did featuring Sir Mix-A-Lot, Eazy-E & NWA and yes, allllllllllllll pre-Serato!
A solid 90 minutes with Seattle's Original MasterMixer & Crazy Pinoy . . . And MORE!
KCMU RAP ATTACK #FBF 1988: I found this on You Tube — a rare recording of two of my very first RAP ATTACK radio shows aired in 1988. The first link is about 37 min long & you can hear my MasterMix around 10min 30 sec into it. Both aired on 90.3FM KCMU, 28 years ago.
I was fired from KFOX in April of 1988 as the station was sold & they made it clear to me that the new KFOX would NOT play RAP/Hip Hop anymore.
KCMU, based on the UW campus, offered me a Sunday night slot around July of 1988 to keep KFOX FRESHTRACKS on the air. I accepted the offer, went from AM to FM in 3 months & renamed my show KCMU RAP ATTACK.
I wanted this show to sound just as good as if you're listening to a Casey Kasem American Top 40 show or any professional sounding show you'd hear on commercial radio. I didn't want to just yell on a mic & say my name in a mix or during the show so I invested $$$ in getting Professional Custom Voice Over Drops. I also made my own Drops & the rest is Seattle Hip Hop HISTORY!
Here it is from 1988 (28 years ago) yours truly, NASTY-NES on KCMU RAP ATTACK!
