I had the chance to sit down and chop it up with the homie Xzibit. We spoke on why there has been such a delay between album releases, wether or not doing “Pimp My Ride” and movies has affected his musical product, the song 1983 featuring his mother, what happened with himself and Strong Arm Steady, getting Dr. Dre to produce on the new album, doing the BET Hip Hop Award Cyphers, what’s going on with Open Bar Entertainment, and much more. Hit the jump and peep the whole interview. Xzibit was always one of my favorite MC’s when I was a kid, I was excited to be able to chop it up with him!

Wiz Khalifa recently dropped his new mixtape Cabin Fever 2. I have heard nothing but mixed things about the project, good and bad. Here is the first visual from it. Sans Juicy J.
The Weeknd drops off his latest visual for “Wicked Games”. I just saw this dude live last week, and was VERY DISAPPOINTED in his live performance. Dude makes great music, but at times I feel he is a bit overrated. That internet hype is a muthaf***er!
So 2 Fridays ago the Slumerican Tour rolled through Phoenix starring the homies Yelawolf and Rittz. I got to sit down with my friend and one of my favorite artists period, Rittz. We spoke on the process of signing with Strange Music, what it’s finally like to have a record deal, what it’s like to be in the studio with Tech N9ne, wether or not he feels pressure to top White Jesus: Revival, what Yelawolf’s reaction was to him signing with Strange Music, how the Strange Music fan base has embraced him and much more! Check out the whole interview after the jump!
This song is so ill. I’m so glad the RZA is putting together such an ill soundtrack for his upcoming movie The Man With The Iron Fists.
Finally we will be getting the long-awaited Mic Tyson album from one of my favorites Sean Price on October 30th. Here’s a joint off the project.
Here is the first single from A$AP Rocky’s debut album LONGLIVEA$AP. I think this song will prove to be A$AP’s first real hit record. This joint is bananas! 2 Chainz and Drake are to thank though.
I had the chance to chop it up with DJ Quik at last week’s Dub Car Show. We spoke on him being slept on as a producer, some up and coming artists he is working with, his favorite beat he has ever made for another artist, his new solo material, working with Kendrick Lamar, how he has been able to adjust to the current state of music/hip hop, his mentors on the production side, and what his top 5 favorite whips of all time are! He also reveals he’s working with Wale. Check out the entire interview after the jump!
