Good interview with the legendary Marlon! Damn he’s getting that mula!!!
What’s in a word? Obviously a lot as far as “nigger” is concerned. The media and politicians say “ban it” but how impossible is it to make the world’s most dangerous word disappear from existence? And do we really know what it means? Hakim Green of Channel Live fame walks us through this black word’s history, it’s etymology, and explains why this word will never go away, and why we should embrace and cherish rather than shun it. Also, Sean C. and L.V. talk their musical history and why we should cop their new album ‘Loud Dreams’ for only $Free Ninety Nine. My lips is like an oowop as I start to spray it.
Here Nas Talks 20 Years of Illmatic with Bill Maher.
Exclusive in-depth interview with producer DJ Mustard. In part 2 Mustard talks to Nick Huff Barili about making 10 beats a day on a “Normal Day” adding “If I’m with Mike Lee we can do 30.” Mustard says that he recently gave Nicki Minaj 15 beats which is pretty standard for him. He goes on to detail that he gave Kanye West 100 + beats. Playing the original beat for Sanctified, Mustard explains how Kanye slowed the beat and the instruments down and added sample. Mustard admits that when he first heard Kanye’s version of Sanctified he did not recognize it. Nick asks Mustard if he plans on working with the “J’s” (Jay Z, J Cole, Jay Electronica) now that he has signed to Roc Nation, to which Mustard responds “For Sure” adding that he already has beat for J Cole. Mustard states that people typecast him as only being able to make certain type of tracks but that he feels he can do anything. “I got a lot of records that people aint even going to know that I did, unless I put my tag on it.” Mustard doesn’t approach working with pop stars like Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna any different than working with rappers adding that some of them want the hardcore rap stuff. He goes on to say that he wants to get a Grammy for producer of the year like Pharrell did. Part 2 of our interview ends with Mustard talking about what his Mom has meant to his career and him giving advice to young producers watching.
Manny talks about President Clinton, politics, his wife being pregnant with their fifth child, and his upcoming fight with Timothy Bradley.
