And The Winner Is... / by Steven Alvarado

So I didn't win NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, but a super cool artist from Oakland called Fantastic Negrito did.  His music is cool and he talks about how his deal with a record company basically killed his creative life.  Now he's out on his own.  Sounds familiar.  Check out his interview on NPR here and then scroll down a little further to watch his winning video.  The dude is fucking cool!
