I'm not really
an 11:00 person, but I'm straight. I'm actually about to write some shit.
you been since our last interview?
I've really been trying to kill the mixtape circuit.
have mixtapes been to your career?
real important. The mixtapes have taken me all over the world. It's been
vital because people everywhere have seen me on the tapes.
the internet allow you to accomplish that you couldn't do otherwise?
When we do
mixtapes, we go everywhere with them. We'll get about 5,000 copies and
take them down to Spring Break in Miami or wherever, but that's all you
can give out. With the internet, we can get the mixtapes out all over
of mixtapes, what do you want to tell everyone about "Back to the
Future Part II"?
As far as
"Back to the Future Part I," it was a lot of samples and a lot
of gangster shit. On "Part II," there are a lot of original
beats and more diverse topics. I think niggas are going to feel this shit
a lot more.
your favorite track on the mixtape?
have to be "Boss Playa." That beat is crazy.
you get all those collaborations to happen being in North Carolina?
the internet. When we did the Remy shit, not only did we have to drop
ten stacks on Remy but we also had to pay for the studio and it got real
expensive. With the internet, we can just send mp3's and keep it moving.
It's a lot easier.
your name is out there a lot more, is it easier to do tracks with artists?
they hit me up. My manager Mike Hustle's Sidekick gets hit up every day
asking, "What's up with doing a song?" It's definitely a lot
easier. Labels are hollering, so I'm going to keep it moving.
the label hunt been going?
been chilling. I'm waiting for the labels to hit me up with the right
budgets. I'm not really shopping. I'm just trying to hit the mixtapes
and kill them. If you don't have the Young Jeezy buzz, then you have more
work to do. I don't want to name any names, but a lot of guys aren't doing
too well because they came in with one record and never did anything.
I'm not stressing it, I'm just waiting for the right time.
will you know when it is the right time?
will tell you. There will be so much demand that the labels will have
to rush the shit. Look at how Jeezy did the Drama mixtape and six months
later he's coming out on Def Jam.
your single "Pop the Trunk" with Garcia doing?
now starting to fuck with the shit. We're sending it to DJ's as soon as
the CD's and vinyl come back. All of the mp3 record pools are feeling
it. On a scale of one-to-ten, we're getting seven's through ten's.
are you focusing on today?
working to keep attacking the mixtape circuit and jam my tracks down niggas'
throats until they realize I'm the future.
criticism of you is that you only talk about drugs and guns. How do you
respond to that?
talks about it so it gets watered down. You have to talk about what you
know and you can't escape it. But look at what I do. I'm always looking
for different types of beats and different subject matters.
ever hurt you being in North Carolina and not New York?
It kind of
hurts you in some ways but it also helps you. They'll hear about my buzz
out here and hit us up. Getting to the labels right now is no problem.
It's good to be from down South right now because they're coming to untapped
markets like Alabama now.
up with your group The Wreckin' Crew?
a mixtape with DJ Styles, "The Cocaine Carolina Movie Mixtape."
That's going to pop. We're going to do that so niggas see that we're everywhere.
On "Back to the Future Part II" I put the Wreckin' Crew on it
a lot. You're not just getting me, you're getting the whole movement.
more focused as a solo artist or group member right now?
on being a solo artist. I need to get myself where I need to get to before
I can really help the group. You're going to be hearing a lot from Traffic,
J-Khrist, and Rain. You already know what Rain is on.
fans expect to hear from you in the next few months?
Look to hear
a lot more of that gangster shit and "Pop the Trunk." Hopefully
we take that single all the way to the top.
you want to say to everyone?
for the new industry, like my man St. Laz says. These labels just keep
recycling niggas which is why the game is in the state it's in now. That's
why you're hearing this wack music. The industry is not making themselves
accessible to new artists, so we have to get in there and push them out.
