Around 2009-2010 (I can't remember which, those years were a blur, ha!) I began recording at Out Da Cutt Studios in Anchorage with Raw Beatzz. I wanted/needed to do music with who I considered to be the best in Alaska, so I began recording with, as well as having my music mixed by, Raw. Raw was affiliated with Bay Dilla and Out Da Cutt Entertainment, so naturally I began working closely with Out Da Cutt (ODC) and the members of Up North D-Boys (UNDB), as we all recorded with Raw under the same roof. I value the time I spent at Out Da Cutt Studios, it literally became like a second home to me—I ended up, a couple years down the road, becoming a partner with them in a bigger studio and had my own office next to Raw's mixing room. To this day, I maintain a great relationship with everyone from ODC. One person I noticed immediately with UNDB, and instantly became a fan of, was Duckman. Duck was the smallest guy in a crew of rather intimidating looking dudes, but when he started rapping, whether it be in the booth or just in a cypher with the boys, his presence was always the one I felt was the most entertaining. I remember nights at the old studio—I'd be blogging or on Photoshop—and Duck and the crew would be just spitting over whatever beat Raw was working on, and I'd always stop what I was doing to listen to Duck's bars. He always delivered... (CLICK HERE TO READ MORE)

It's summer time, muthafuckas! I just got off the slope, where it's still cold as hell & the snow is still dumping down, and soon as I got to the crib, I lit one up and started going through my local rap playlists and realized it's time for another Tubby's Top 5, a list featuring what I consider to be, the hottest 5 tracks from Alaska's greatest & latest. These tracks will surely be in rotation throughout the next three months at your local neighborhood BBQ's, rap shows and house parties. This is Tubby's Top 5 for the month of May. (READ MORE)

On February 6, 2016, I held a hip-hop event in my hometown of Fairbanks. It was the first event I'd thrown in a few years—I can't recall exactly how long it had been, but it was longer than it should have been. I decided to invite a bunch of local acts, people I had developed relationships with over the years, as well as local acts that I had become a fan of. I couldn't come up with anything super catchy, so I decided to just call it "Tubby & Friends." It was simple; it was clean. And I felt like the word "Friends" gave it a peaceful, comforting vibe, which the local rap community definitely needed... (READ MORE)
