Philadelphia's G. Love has been steadily cranking out his unique style of ramshackle hip-hop blues for two decades now, both with his backing band Special Sauce and solo.

Last year, he released his most recent solo album, the Avett Brothers-produced Fixin' to Die, on Jack Johnson's label Brushfire Records.

G. Love recently swung through the Twin Cities on a solo tour, complete with a stop in The Current studio to chat with Mary Lucia.

Songs played: "Early Rising," "Milk and Sugar" and "Still Hanging Around."
