A little over a month ago, we sat with Lil’ John Roberts over at the ABL studios for Day 1 Radio. The Philly native is a world-renowned drummer who’s toured with people like Janet Jackson and the like — trust, he’s been big time for awhile now. Most likely, while you were sleeping, he was grinding at the Duke Ellington Orchestra or overseas somewhere as a youngster. These days, he’s producing entire albums and employing his homies like Eric Roberson to jump onboard. He’s a pretty good storyteller too.
Cop his recently released debut LP The Heartbeat if you’re into it.
