Memorial Day kicks off summer which means we can finally show the world our ripped bodies we've been working on all winter and skateboard down the boardwalk grinding to our favorite summer jamz.

City Hall's favorite taxpayer, Zuma Dogg was nice enough to share with us what we would probably hear if we wound up over at his pad sharing mother nature and working on plans to save the world.

Where do you start? I like electronic/trance/ambiant the most, when it is available; like on satellite or the right internet cafe. Reggae, too. (Both are underplayed on LA radio.) But here are 20 influential albums in the life of ZD. And to everyone I have met, spoken to on the phone, corresponded with by email, everyone quietly paying attention, and those who covered my community activism this past year...heeeel yeaaaaaaaah! Oh the realest, Dough!
