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?)

 

I GOT IN THA GAME DOING BLOCK PARTY’S AND JAMS IN

RED HOOK IT WAS ONLY A FEW ILL MC’S AND MY OLDER

BROTHER WAS ONE OF THEM SO I FORMED A GROUP CALLED

LIVE AND DIRECT AND STARTED DOING SHOWS WE PRESSSED UP

SOME VINYL INDEPENDENT AND STARTED GRINDING IT WAS ME

AMBASSADOR, SHABAZZ THA DISCIPLE AND SUPREME WE WAS

THA M.A.D. M.O.B. BACK THEN "BAZZ HOOKED UP WIT RZA

AND THE REST WAS HISTORY…. 

 

THE GROUP FORMED IN 92 WHILE WE WAS IN THA STUDIO WITH

WU-TANG WAITING TO RECORD.

 

I PUT IN WORK FROM SPENDING MY OWN PERSONAL MONEY FOR

STUDIO TIME TOO WRITING THA HOOKS AND SONG CONCEPTS

EVENING OUT SELLING MY OWN MUSIC.

 

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?)

 

THA CURRENT PROJECT IM PUSHING NOW IS "RENAISSANCE

CHILD" MY FIRST OFFICIAL SOLO RELEASE…PEOPLE CAN

EXPECT A CLASSIC ALBUM THEY DIDNT HEAR IN A WHILE..

FROM BEGINNING TO END IT’S GOOD. THE CONCEPTS THA

STORIES,POLITICAL,SPIRITUAL,REAL LIFE, IT WAS THE

PERFECT TIME TO HAVE A REBIRTH OR RENAISSANCE BECAUSE

HIP HOP HAS CHANGED ALOT..I CAME UP WIT THA TITLE WHEN

WE WAS OVERSEAS TOURING IT WAS A DEEP JOURNEY…I CAME

BACK FEELING LIKE I NEEDED TO BE REBORN AGAIN TO THESE

LISTENERS AND I NEVER CAME OUT SOLO. SO THE THEME WAS

TAKING IT FROM THA WOMB TO WHO I AM NOW..I WANTED

CLASSIC ARTWORK TO GO WITH IT…

 

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?)

 

MY PURPOSE IN THIS GAME IS TO ENLIGHTEN ANYBODY I

CAN BY SPEAKING ON THA REALEST SITUATIONS I CAN THINK

OF..THEY MAY SAVE ME ONE DAY..GOIN PLATINUM JUST MEAN

IT’S A MILLION PEOPLE LISTENING AND FOLLOWING YOUR

MESSAGE IN YOUR MUSIC. 

 

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!)

 

DEATH IS A HIGHER PLANE OF LIFE SO IF ITS DEAD THAT

MEANS ITS TIME FOR A CHANGE. TOO MANY OF THA SAME

STYLES AND SOUNDS ARE OVERLY PROMOTED. FOR EVERY

ORIGINAL THEY CAN MAKE A MILLION COPIES.. AINT NO MORE

RAKIM’S AND KANES OR KOOL G RAPS AROUND…DJ’S PLAYIN

MP3′S NOW U GOT PRO TOOLS IT’S EITHER DEAD OR BECOMING

DIGITAL…

 

 

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?):

 

3 WISHES 1.MAKE HIP HOP A CLASS IN SCHOOL

2.MAKE ALL CONTRACTS PERFECT 3.BUILD A HIP HOP

MUSUEM..
