Peace, God, I’m bout to pull a gun on you…
The most powerful manager in hip-hop, Paul Rosenberg, hosted a call with RIck Rubin about his involvement in MMLP2 and his approach.
Rosenberg is one of the few interviewers brave enough to question someone whom he also respects, and not make it about his particular taste…but about a whole interest group in hip hop. Here he sits with Kanye West during this now-legendary press run. Then Ebro comes in to fluff himself.
“There’s not many artists that beat a life sentence on surveillance camera in front of the world…I’m the first and probably the last to do that,” remarks Gunplay while explaining why he is worthy of the title “Living Legend.”
Zane Lowe sits with Pusha T and records an audio interview. Thirteen minutes of pushing.
Kanye and Sway hash it out like men.
Zane Lowe’s interview with Kanye West took on a life of its own, spawning controversy and a feud turned national-television resolution. Eminem’s no stranger to…anyone. Hopefully, this series gives more insight into his process.
Chance talks independent pushing, musical roots of hip-hop, and hitting the tour circuit with Eminem. ChIraq stand up.

All the same, the work is there. Check out his interview with Power 105′s Breakfast Club after the jump.
