Man, locked up, man.
Where are you?
Santa Rita Jail House.
Santa Rita Jail House. Now, explain, you know, from your side of it exactly what the situation is and what’s going on with you.
I’m in jail for a female I used to live with. Basically, she lied to the police and told them some things. So I’m in here man fighting for my freedom right now, that’s all basically. I can’t go deep into it, but I’m going to beat it.
Ok, so we will definitely see you on the other side pretty soon.
Ok, this is the “Going Way Back Show,” classic hip hop, and of course, you definitely have a “Classic”, Five on it with your man Yuckmouth. Tell me how you guys got together, and how you guys came up with that song, Five On It.
We got together in junior high school. I had a group called, “ Brotha’s With potential. During some talent shows and things like that. This brother came to the school busted a rap for me and the song five on it came about when we was at an apt on 62nd and Bancroft, and we was broke, and all I said I have $5 on the weed sack, and that’s how it came about. Took it from there.
And the rest is history.
Now what are some of your influences coming up. What rappers were you listening to coming up and who influenced you.
Well we came out it was really all east coast until short, so, Eric B, and Rakim, I like EPMD, of course, The Teacher, but basically, it was all new York rappers, so until Too Short.
Up until Short, right?
Ok, give me 3 of your favorite hip hop songs.
I Ain’t Joke is one of my favorite raps, I got five on it, fa sho, and, I say, Freaks Of The Industry!
