2015 was rocky in places but overall, it’s been the best year of my life. I got a dream job when Beats1 launched in the Summer, made it to 3 years on Rinse FM and had amazing adventures in Amsterdam, France, LA, Cyprus and New York in between. Here are some of the best or funniest/weirdest moments of my 2015…

* Holding Smoke DZA’s mic so he could roll a blunt during our interview

* Seeing Lil Herb live at SXSW


* Getting a job on Beats1


* When Raekwon sang Somewhere Over The Rainbow to me

* Getting the OG Mike Miller to photograph Earl & Vince for the cover of Viper
