Coming from Atlanta, do you feel like you're expected to be crunk?
Naw, Niggaz like OutKast, T.I. and Goodie Mob have paved the way I mean
we really like the most diverse region in this music shit.
Congrats on the Unsigned Hype in the Source, how did it feel when you opened
up the mag and saw your face?
Shit, It was overdue. I been spittin flames for a while now man.
What has that done for you so far?
I had an industry buzz before that, it gave cats on the streets a face to a
name .I am grateful though. I am appreciative of the respects dudes are
giving me on the streets right now.
Back in the day you formed a group with Ludacris, how did the group get started
and what were you called?
As far as the Ludacris situation, it was never a group with Ludacris himself.
It was a situation with some artist in the now known DTP (I-20, Lil Fate, Tity
Boy and Dolla Boi) and we were called Playaz Circle. My brother Shai had formed
a label and then I was an artist/producer, mostly involved in production.
How was Luda as an MC then?
At that time he was just a DJ on the radio (97.5) and doing shows in southern
How have you seen him change from then 'til now?
The nigga rich. Lol
Being that you aren't in DTP now, everyone'll be wondering what happened between
you and the others...
I was never in DTP, the artist I mentioned above was in a group called Playaz
Circle and they end up signing with DTP.
How did you get down with Focus?
He heard some mixtape shit and it has been love every since.
What was it about you that made him want to work with you?
I was HOT, something new and refreshing for the game.
What about The Alchemist?
Pretty much the same as the Focus situation. I have been working with nothing
but major producers, so everyone is showing the same love.
What labels have gotten at you so far?
Pretty much every major label you can think of (I got a lot of things happening
for me, so I gotta stay quiet on that)
Who have you received the most interest from?
Gotta stay quiet.....
What is the ideal offer you're looking for from a label?
Creative Control and room to take this shit over like I am supposed too.
What's the biggest obstacles you've faced in the game so far?
Really, this rap shit is like a picnic, man I have faced way bigger obstacles
How do you know when you've made a good song?
I am in a zone right now duke, I haven't bricked yet. When I brick, you'll be
the first to know.
How can producers get at you with beats?
They can send them to the office at the following address:
9633 Utah Drive

Finally, when people hear Al Gator, what do you want them to think?
That the game finally has something new to look forward to since the greatest
