Interview: Drique London

I recently got on the call with NC lyricist Drique London. The Queens influenced artist described the variety of funk out in his home city Raleigh and the new EP Payton & Kemp. The project is mostly backed by U’Nique Music’s smooth soulful beats, giving you a glimpse into the rapper’s background and influences. Check the interview and here Drique’s take on the state of HipHop and more. Peace!!!!

Interview: Soul Khan, Wellstone EP

My first convo with Soul Khan has been collecting dust and realized I better throw it up here. Last March we spoke on the release day of his EP Welstone, named after the late Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone, who was an icon to many for his progressive politics and solidarity with working class people.

On December 11th 2012 Khan’s new EP, Psalm, is set to drop. I’ll be speaking to him about it on my show that same day (and I’ll be sure to get the interview up here son after). For now, check out this interview and go download the Wellstone EP!

Interview: Rashad and Confidence

If you haven’t heard The Element of Surprise yet, you’ve been missing out on a modern reincarnation of classic HipHop spirit. Rashad and Confidence met through MySpace to bring it back all the way to the early 90’s. The Element of Surprise is destined to be a classic album and will be bumped from front to back for decades to come!

Apologies for the abrupt start to the interview. My first question noted that Rashad is from NYC and Confidence is from Philly: so how did they meet?
