What's poppin y'all, it's me, Baby Z. This is my third year hosting The Block Party, a specialty show highlighting non-Top 40 artists of color. I've been a big music fan as long as I can remember; classic rock and southern rock were my first loves, but these days I listen mostly to alternative r&b and hip hop so you'll be hearing a lot of those on my show. Outside of DJing, I'm also the Associate Director of Event Planning for WUSC and host a music and culture podcast through Garnet Media called Culture Jam where you can hear some more of my takes on popular music.
