So hopefully everybody enjoyed the Juice interview that was posted over the last two days; if not, I won't be losing any sleep over it. Although he definitely has the confidence and swagger thatâ€™s required of a rapper, he was actually a pretty humble dude, not to mention the fact that he was pretty f**king personable for someone who has the immense career opportunities that he has lurking on the horizon. And to top it off, he was nothing but professional about setting up the interview, and about being prepared and punctual for it. All in all, he was a cool ass dude, and Iâ€™m glad to have had the opportunity to interview him.
Anyways, it was nice to see most of you rise above the whole G-Unit/Black Wall Street bulls**t to check out a new artist who is defnitely going to add a new dimension to the West Coast. Thanks for keeping the rap-crew affiliation political banter to a minimum.
Since weâ€™re talking about Black Wall Street, itâ€™s only right that I make quick mention of The Gameâ€™s arrest. With him and Snoop Dogg facing jail time on felony charges, the possibility of the West Coastâ€™s two most commercially viable artists looms large. Great.
â€œI wanna say that, uh, Iâ€™m not guilty and, um... I love California.â€ If you havenâ€™t seen this s**t yet, peep...
Iâ€™d make the usual comments about being responsible if youâ€™re a multi-millionaire, but you probably already know... You can just go back and look at any of a variety of Snoop blogs to get the picture.
In other news, Warner has finally set a release date for The Federationâ€™s new album, Itâ€™s Whateva: June 26th. I guess I kinda lost track and thought that it already came out and I had missed it, being that the label sent me a watermarked advance of the album on November 6th, 2006. Iâ€™m kinda thinking that they shouldâ€™ve dropped the album when they had two singles on the radio, but apparently theyâ€™re dropping a new single called â€œCollege Girlâ€, so weâ€™ll see how it goes.
Thatâ€™s all for now; Iâ€™m off to get a drink. Have a good weekend, kids.
