I’ve never tried to deliberately make a name for myself in the hip hop world. I just think that more than any other genre right now, hip hop is the most “open source,” musically. I can play blues over hip hop better and easier than I could over almost any pop music. Some of the most fun I’ve ever had playing guitar has been on hip hop sessions. I can give you a few reasons why hip hop and the Grateful Dead have a lot in common.
