 With The Hustle now out in stores and a tour with Donovan Frankenreiter and Jack Johnson, G Love is certainly back on the radar. To us, this is one of the can't miss shows of the summer and the disc is phenomenal. We recently had the chance to catch back up with G and talk about The Hustle, how fatherhood has changed him, and a possible record featuring himself and his tourmates. Give a Listen* as G also dishes about the booty call. *Windows Media Player 9 is needed to listen to this interview.

I want to thank G for taking the time to talk with me. It was great getting a chance to chat with him again and just letting loose and seeing where the conversation goes. Keep your eye up for when G Love & the rest of the Brushfire Tour comes to your town, and be sure to purchase The Hustle.
