“10 x CMJ 2011 Beat Recommends: Womp it out with these 10 beatwizards Louisiana-born, Brooklyn-based DJ Lifeone has been hard at work producing for fellow Brooklynite and rapper A.C. With an ear tuned to hip-hop, DJ Lifeone effortlessly mixes rap with the Cure with a little bit of womp and scratch.”

“Hailing from the Dirty Dirty South, Lifeone has rocked parties from Austin to Miami with his mix of hip hop, indie, electro, and funk jams.”

"CMJ Buffet: Artists And Their Spirit Sandwiches Our CMJ artists reveal what sandwich they would be (if they were a sandwich)" Here at CMJ, we ask all the hard-hitting questions to get right to the bottom of what a new artist is all about. That is why we asked CMJ 2011ers to tell us what sandwich they would be, if they were a sandwich. Hey Lifeone—remember the sandwich shop Silas worked at in Weeds? That’s probably Kreayshawn’s favorite sandwich.

Lifeone (Brooklyn, NY): Whatever Kreayshawn’s favorite sandwich is, so she could put me in her mouth. Sorry Mom!"
