I was lucky enough to have a blessed 2012. I would like to thank everyone who supported me, downloaded my mixes, watched my interviews, checked me out in the club, and of course listened to me on the radio in the last 12 months. There are too many people to thank for the tremendous year that I have had. The biggest thing that changed for me this year was making a move from the beloved city of Las Vegas and Hot 97.5 (KVEG) back to my hometown of Phoenix, only to return to the station that I started as an intern at back in 2005 (Power 98.3 KKFR). From some of the biggest interviews of my career, to appearing on MTV DJing for 2 Chainz- this year was spectacular and special. I decided to try my best to recap my 2012 in video form to the best of my abilities. Below is pretty much every single interview that I did this year (Excluding J. Cole and all of the folks who called into my show) wrapped up in a 4 minute video clip. Please check it out, like, comment and share! 2013 is gonna be major!!
Finally the date is here! This project has been months in the making and is finally here for your listening pleasure. Sean Rose is an incredible artist representing Las Vegas, Nevada.

This shit right here is DOPE. Check it out for yourself and thank me later!!
