This week's conversation was a heartwarming one, as we spoke with Badblood (Kaylon Alexis) about his creative process and style of music. His music is unique to him, in that he does not use expletives in his music. In addition to being a songwriter and at times a producer, he is also a panman, having played for Sangre Grande Chordettes.
