all proceeds go towards Haiti earthquake relief
Lush and chunky east Coast beats (I totally stole that description from someone else's YouTube comments because it works) from the sexy Guillermo Scott Herren -- no, not Gil Scott-Heron -- at Slim's. He'll be joined by future-dub amazeball Gaslamp Killer for extra wow factor. This is the one to smoke up and get down too ...
