So listen and Learn!
From a roach-infested apartment in San Antonio, Texas, Toki the Toksta (Zach Treviño, vocals) and Reggie Randomizer (Regis L. Roberts, beats) craft thinking-man’s hip-hop as Something Unknown. Sure, you could turn off your brain and get into the groove, but Something Unknown challenges the mind and demands attention. Something Unknown goes beyond underground to give listeners everything they would want in a hip-hop group and nothing they would expect. Toki blends stories of his struggle with the “criminal justice” system and commands to the listener to move their bodies, while Reggie mixes infectious loops and an overdose of bass, presenting their audience with a taste they can’t help but acquire. “Like” Something Unknown on Facebook, listen and download tracks on SoundCloud ( HYPERLINK “http://www.soundcloud.com/reggie-randomizer” www.soundcloud.com/reggie-randomizer) and follow @SomethinUnknown on Twitter.

Finish Strong..as an athlete, in anything you do, you want to finish stronger than you started, and it certainly applys to everyday life.
If you had to pick another career other than the one you are most known for, what would it be, and why?
I certainly would have loved to give hoops a shot. I still play basketball3-5 times a week and would love to get an opportunity to compete against some elite hoopers to see where I’d stack up athletically I enjoy writing as well (was my major) and I’ve been fortunate enough to write for ESPN on college lacrosse for the past few years, so I could certainly see myself pursuing that if I wasn’t playing.
What is your ideal Sunday afternoon?
It all depends on where I am! But, ideally, I’d wake up, and watch NBA and NFL games all day long! But, I’m usually on the road somewhere for Nike, STX, Playmaker or LXM, so my Sundays usually involve working out and being on a lacrosse field!
What are you most passionate about?
Thats a tough question man…as an lacrosse player, I’m certainly most passionate about spreading this game, and giving back to this sport as it’s done a lot for me and it’s important to recognize that. From getting me into college, to opening up a lot of doors professionally, I owe a lot to this sport, and it’s something I take very seriously. As an athlete, I’m most passionate about improving and reaching my potential as a player. I still learn things from watching film of Jay Jalbert, AJ Haugen, and tons of other guys.
Your are one of the most celebrated champions in the sport of lacrosse and recently have been able to be a big part for the expansion of Lacrosse worldwide as the fastest growing sports in the world. What so you think is the main reason for Lacrosse rapid growth of new players and new teams around the world?
I think our sport combines the best parts of all other sports, and kids/parents are starting to see that! Take the physical play of football, endurance of soccer, strategy of baksetball/hockey on offense and defense, and you’ve got a pretty exciting sport. Not to mention, we’re getting bigger time athletes playing this sport and great media coverage for college games through ESPN and Inside Lacrosse.
Honestly, just being out here in L.A., and meeting Jay Corbin (Sports Marketing at Beats). Their offices are in Santa Monica, only about 5 minutes away from our LXM PRO offices (check out www.lxmpro.com). It’s been pretty cool to go up there, check out the offices, see some of the other custom head phones they’ve created, and just see how the entire operation is run! Being the first lacrosse athlete to have custom headphones created is certainly something I’m very proud of. They are off the chains!!! We’ve got something else in the works possibly, but I’ll hold off talking about it for now….
So what are some of the HipHop artist your going to be listing to in your new custom Beats By Dre headphones?
Biggie, Jay-Z, Kanye, Wayne and Drake!
What are some of the artist you listen to in your pre-game mix?
ALL Wayne, Biggie, and one Phil Collins song!
One thing you want people to know about you that they ordinarily would not know?
I cook a MEAN waffle! No joke!
