Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

For a lot of hip-hop fans in Denver, DJ Chonz is only known as the afternoon and weekend DJ on the city's "hip-hop" radio station, KS107.5. They don't know he cut his teeth hustling mixtapes at Cinco De Mayo, competing in Regional DMC Championships, and opening up for national artists like The Roots, Goodie Mob, Tha Alkaholiks and dozens more. They also don't know he's been releasing underground hip-hop mixtapes for quite sometime now. One of the latest is Catch the Buzz 3, featuring everyone from Chino XL and Rhymefest to locals Playalitcal and Infinite Mindz. Listen to it and download it after the jump. - Quibian Salazar-Moreno

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
