Welcome to a new recurring feature here on DC9 where we talk to people of interest in the metroplex about their taste in music, including likes, dislikes, and guilty pleasures. We're calling it Pedestrian Playlist -- because, hey, everyone listens to music.
The Dallas Mavericks are off to another great start this year, currently sitting at second place in the National basketball Association's Western Conference. And, still, their games remain one of the biggest parties in the Metroplex.
So: One may wonder who actually keeps the party pumping.
So we thought it would be interesting to ask Whiz T about his musical tastes. Sure enough, DJ Whiz T gave some choices that give an insight into his music choices, including heavy influences from alternative hip-hop and, uh, Fleetwood Mac? Sure. See and listen to his playlist after the jump!

Fleetwood Mac- Dream
"The whole album's got the whole backstory. I understood what the group was going through considering the situation, loving each other and hating each other at the same, but even in the worst you can make music that moves peoples."
