From bar driven appearances in cyphers to reflective & insightful tracks, his music pretty much runs the gamut. He's definitely knowledgeable about music outside of Rap. I've come to respect his opinion and how he incorporates multigenre elements into his work frequently. With that in mind I thought it'd be interesting to have a discussion with him about his music, artistry, attention to detail, and issues pertinent to today's Hip-Hop climate.
What is true skool?
So, if 'old school' is old, and 'new school' is new, I feel that 'true school' is what you get when you have classic, current hip-hop. It's fresh, yet familiar. True to the culture.
Is it hard to balance musical experimentation and musical integrity?
Absolutely! I struggle with this. There is all types of music I'd like 2 make, but there is always a thought in the back of my mind that I'm going to lose a demographic or a fan base, or offend someone's musical taste. When really I'm just tryin to be my full-self! Not that I let that stop me...but it does tend to make me second guess myself as an artist.
