DD:What's your current project, and what should we expect from it? W:My current project as a whole is my debut album. As of right now, we are working 2 singles both commercially and virally. The first being "Show Stopper" ft Mario, which is a Big Club jump off. The second being "No Love" which is for the street and mainly underground. Both of these records are preludes to what is and will be a series of good music.Listeners can expect to hear something refreshing. I feel like rap is going back to some of its cores right now, and thats my lane.
DD: What's it like working with Dame Grease?
W:Dame was cool, he came thru the Sony studios when I was up there lacing his track. I'm a fan first so it was definitely an honor to meet and record on his joint. DD:You lived in Florida, how did that effect you musically? W:Looking back on it I know it had an impact on me. When I moved from up north I was only used to a certain kind of music. You know the east coast go hard. But after opening up to that way of life I grew to appreciate the whole scene more. And now the mixture of both of the styles is what made my style. DD:On "Go F*ck Yourself Vol.1" you used the wiretaps from your court case, what was the reaction from the people?
W:The reaction was huge because the shit sounded like a movie..but its all real, and the way I beat up the mixtape made people who didnt know me before hand check for me.
DD:How important is the college audience for a new artist?
W:I mean, personally I think the college crowds are the fans that are going to make you or break you. If the crowd digs you then you potentially have a fan for life..these people will grow with you as an artist.
DD:Tell us about C.O.S. Entertainment, are you the only artist? W:C.O.S Ent. was started in 03. It's the cornerstone of my movement. Currently I am the only artist on it. I feel like when i get to where I need to be I'll have the platform to then reach out, or double back and give somebeody a shot. But real talk I have to get there first.
DD:You've had a lot of stops and starts, what's one thing you would of done different? W:The one thing I would of done different, I would have not been caught up in the street. You can't serve two masters ya dig, and thats reason for the starts and stops I've had in the past. I wasn't 100% dedicated to my art. Doing bids took a big chunk out my life for awhile there, and being in the system period didn't give me the freedom to do what I needed to do to get it poppin.I'm 110% invested in my project now and have been for the last year and a half and because if that im getting good results feel me?
DD:You've been incarcerated, how would you feel about one of the C.O.'s that worked their while you were down, starting a rap career where they claim to be a crime lord? W:I dont know how I would feel about that. Don't sound right though.
DD:Who is the most underrated rapper in Boston history? W:Man, I guess I"m biased when it comes to that question, because I got some dudes around me that I feel are fire, and I feel they're underrated. DD:How's your debut album coming along? Its almost finished. I want to do work with a few key people first, before I close shop. It's something that I'm actually proud of so I think people will be too.
