Got a chance to interview Lyric Jones for Exclusive Audio Footage.
My brother Stess The Emcee recently sat down with production team The Superiors (Nikki D, Queen Latifah, Slick Rick, Naughty By Nature) as part of his Exclusive Audio Footage interview series. The results are below… check it out!
Son Of Bazerk has always been a personal favorite, and through the magic that is Facebook (which allows any idiot to stalk their favorite rappers), plus a heads up from my man Robbie at Unkut, I got wind of the release of “Well Thawed Out” – a follow up the 1991 debut album. Copping that late last year, I finally managed to get schedules working out to the point where a phone interview became possible.
This week’s DITC was hosted by one the true lyrical giants of Hiphop. Kool G Rap briefly spoke to Stess about his position in the rap game, his work with the Juice Crew in the past, and his more recent records with Nas, Raekwon and Rick Ross. This is a short version of the full interview, which is posted HERE. Stay tuned for that. The second hour was used to pay tribute to the king of West Coast hooks, Nate Dogg.
My UK connect Ajay D sits down for a chinwag with Joell Ortiz before his London tour date. Make sure you tune into Ajay D’s Hiphop show, Saturdays on Frome FM. Props to Tony Spreadlove & Sumit From Hip Hop Chronicle for their help in setting up the interview.
Shortly before a scheduled lecture at Florida State University, Chuck D took time out to chat on the phone with Stess and I, regarding his new projects and the state of Hiphop today.
(This is the second time that Chuck D has been interviewed for Altrap.com. Check out the older interview here.)
This past weekend, my brother Stess The Emcee sat down with DJ Brandi Garcia, and chatted with her about her beginnings as a DJ in Tallahassee, and her opinions on the issues between Houston radio station 97.9 The Box, and artist Trae The Truth, which resulted in her leaving her position at that station.
