Inside the mind of Colin Carbonera of Rabino

Story by Colton O’Reilly. I caught up with Colin Carbonera of Rabino after his breathtaking set at the Soul Bowl event at Paradise Lanes in February.

I stopped by the Th0t Police headquarters to talk to Sterling about the inspiration for Jaguar, his growth over the last year, what’s next, as well as more about the collective Th0t Police.
