Reppin’ (What city you reppin’?):
Affiliation (What crew or artists you roll with?):
The Justus League: Edgar Allen Floe, Cesar Comanche, Mike Burvick, 9th Wonder, Phonte, Rapper Big Pooh (Little Brother), Sean Boog, Khrysis (The Away Team), Chaundon, L.E.G.A.C.Y., DJ Flash, Yorel, Eccentric, Big Dho, Median.
Influences (Who inspires you? Not limited to just hip-hop):
Knowing I have something to say, instead of rapping “just because”. I know my music is not the average, and fans appreciate my work. They truly feel what I’m trying to relay.
Backstory (How’d you get in the game? How did the group form? What work did you put in before getting signed to a label?)
The name was given to me by my partner in rhyme, Mal Demolish of The
Undefined. It had a nice ring to it, so I decided to run with it. As a group, we managed to release our own material independently, which helped us further believe that what we were doing was right. I’ve work from 8:00am-6:00pm, get off work, and immediately drive 5 ½ hours for a show. I’m always on the grind.
Current project (What are you pushing right now? What can people expect from it? Feel free to just hype your album here…why did you name the album that name? Was there a theme? Any funny stories during its creation?)
The new album is ready to be released this year, called “The Streetwise LP”. Featuring production from 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Slicemysta (EA Floe’s alter ego), and many others. Also, “True Links Volume 2” will be released this year as well. This project will feature only non-U.S. producers. And finally for 2007, a new project from The Undefined will be released, called “Plan U”, with production also from Slicemysta, 9th Wonder, Khrysis, and more.
Purpose (What kind of impact do you hope to have on the game? Do you just want to go platinum or is there something more?)
I just want to be comfortable…period. Just being able to be happy and doing music for a living is all I need. Eventually, I would like to start a production company and/or record label, and help the next leaders get a chance. This is my way of “keeping the torch lit”.
Is hip-hop really dead? (Wax philosophical here, break down what you think of hip-hop today or compare it to when you were coming up. Good? Bad? Break it down!)
Three wishes (If you had three wishes to change anything within hip-hop, what would they be? Bring someone back to life? Get a Kanye West beat? Make snap music disappear?):
