Most of you know that moving to LA was not an easy leap for me to make. I've struggled with making friends, keeping friends, and staying above the noise. There's a few people that I've kept in my circle since the beginning, and Alix is one of those people. We met in a subway station in NY years ago when I was selling Governor's Ball tickets. We'll go into friendships, G-Eazy and what makes LA a special place to live (if you can rise above) during episode 82. Follow Alix on social media at @allips.
