You've said “I love rap more than anyone I’ve ever met,” who would you rank second? Of all the artists you've interacted with who was the biggest fan of the culture?
One person who I know loves Rap more than most is Kurupt. He's a rap machine and is willing to rap anywhere to any kind of beat and with any other rapper at the drop of a hat. He has a rare passion for the art form and seems driven by his love for the genre. Many of the artists I interact with and have become friends with are serious fans of the culture. Tech N9ne stands out because we share a love for Schoolly D, the first gangster rapper. Tech and I have discussed Schoolly and his influence for more than a decade now. Tech also loves b-boying and graffiti, so he's much more into all facets of hip-hop culture than I think most people realize.
You've been releasing a well received series of books chronicling the making of various artists albums, I have to know how did you end up doing a Young Bleed one? What was your relationship w/ him prior to that?
