Joining the hike this week was Brooklyn’s own recording artist Shelley Nicole of blaKbüshe. So not only was it a great hike and start to the week, but also an even better conversation between Black girls about the state of music today and the craziness and quite frankly stupidity of some today’s recording artists. Kudos DJ Kristi Lomax and Shelley. More to come on what Shelley is up to these days later.

And check for DJ Kristi Lomax’s Restless Soul show tonight on KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, worldwide online at Kristi spins only the best in soul and house music each and every Monday night from 10:30 p.m. to Midnight.
