It’s been a few years since our last interview. What have you been up to?
I’ve definitely been grinding. I’ve been putting out a lot of music and keeping it real. I’m promoting my own label ID Entertainment. That’s my independent group. And Paper Time group. I’m staying focused and staying out of the fuckery and the fuckboy shit. I’m just staying focused on my team and that’s it.
What have you been doing in the last year?
Oh, I’ve been definitely trying to build a studio in my room. I’m trying to get that situated. Other than that it’s just the grind. I’m just trying to make a lot of material. There’s nothing anybody can say about my music and my style. I’m not even trying to sound cocky. These dudes just ain’t doing it how they’re supposed to do. I’m not saying that New York is dead but they definitely need my face out there because I know what type of music they definitely want right now, without a doubt.
What do you think your music has that other rappers’ music doesn’t?
I know how to make a song. You can leave your freestyles for the mixtapes but I have all the songs anybody could need. You could give them my number. This is how it’s going down. Straight paper, hate later. I definitely have material that can definitely get heard. And shout out to Ammo out there in France. Ammo already knows what it is. He’s been supplying me. And shout out to Rerok in VA. He’s been supplying me. Anything they give me I get back to them and they definitely want to push.
When will we hear this music?
HipHopGame knows. I’ve been away for two, three years, but I’m still here and I’m still buzzing on everything. Anytime you want to hear me, you already know. It’s never nothing to send music. I’m not really talking. I’m showing everybody what’s really happening. They need this right now. They need that Paper Time shit. They need me to scream Paper Time a thousand times. It’s just motivation. They need that right now.
My favorite song that you’ve ever done is still “Stranger in the City,” which is over three years old.
(laughs) Shout out to Ammo. He gave me that beat and he could have sent it to a thousand other people that would have and could have touched it but he threw it in my hands and he’s got my back. Shout out to DJ Vlad. He came right to Flatbush and did the little 10 minute scene with the camera and all that. I did two verses of “Stranger in the City” but I didn’t ever get the chance to remix it. It’s possible I might remix it but I’m going to just let it be how it is right now. That’s what it was.
Do fans still mention that song to you today?
Yeah. They definitely do. My man from the U.K. hit me six to seven months ago talking about that. He told me I needed to do a remix of that with Uncle Murder and Papoose. Shit, if I knew Uncle Murder and Papoose it would go down like that. I told him that I didn’t know them like that and they’re busy with their work but if that ever goes down it would really go down crazy. But he’s in the U.K. and for him to tell me about it and for him to be able to speak on it and ask about that song, that made me feel a certain way, like they’re really listening. But I told him, man, anybody that needs a track touched, it’s never nothing. I live in Flatbush and I’m here, man. That’s how I’m doing it in this year. It’s ’09 and I’m not running nowhere. If you want to do a track, let’s link up. We ain’t scared to do a feature today.
Do you have better songs than “Stranger in the City” today?
I did song called “Back it on Up” and some other tracks. I got a track called “War” on YouTube. You’ll see how that went down. I got songs that can definitely touch things right now. Before I did “Stranger in the City” I was doing music that my team really wanted. Now I’m older now and I’m on my ownership and I’m doing what I want to do and I’m still knocking out tracks that can knock out all my older material. And shout out to Derty Den who’s still at G.I.T.
Why did you part ways with Loose and G.I.T. Entertainment?
Everybody knows, man. I knew these dudes before rap, man. They knew what it was. I definitely wasn’t seeing no money. That shit was crazy. I definitely wasn’t even looking into it like that. I just had appreciation that they put me on. They already know what it is. There ain’t no love lost. They know what it is. Shout out to Loose, man. To this day I keep in contact with Loose. Loose is still 100% behind me. He knows what it is. It is what it is, man. And the funny thing about it is dudes around my way are looking at my situation.
Have you started your debut album?
Nah. Actually I have about, I’m gonna be honest with you, this is no bullshit, B, I got about 65 tracks done right now. 65. And I’m about to put out this mixtape. And I got a group coming out right now too. The album is here though. The album is definitely here. I got 65 tracks done. I got tracks I could hand out right now. And I’m touching different topics. I’m not keeping it one-dimensional. I’m touching everything. Everything gets touched.
What producers do you want to work with?
I would love to work with Cool and Dre. I’m also feeling Just Blaze. And I’ll touch anyone’s beats. Send your beats through. I’ll touch any of their tracks. It’s a blessing to touch any tracks. It’s never nothing. I like working with Ammo and Grim Team. Grim Team, I like their beats but they really only gave me one or two beats so it wasn’t really nothing. They gave me two beats to pick from and I have to pick the best one and go from there.
What do you need to do where you get to the level where you get fresh beats all the time and are releasing music on a consistent basis?
I’m just going to keep on doing what I do, man. I’m going to keep on showing up to these events. I gotta go to the clubs. I just go to the clubs to have a good time. I’m trying to get on these sites too. These sites are popping. All y’all’s sites are popping. Y’all gave me an interview three years ago. I was on the come up back then. I’m just trying to get out there and let people hear the music. That’s all. That ain’t too much. It’s a new year and it’s time for new paper. I’m not doing the picky thing. Anybody that wants to do a track, it’s never nothing. Scream at me.
What’s the next move for you?
The next move is ID Entertainment. That’s what it is. Paper Time is the motherfucking game. Other than that we’re in the lab and we’re knocking out joints. We’re staying loyal to Brooklyn. We definitely ain’t folding. We’re grinding and the music will be heard. Anybody that’s reading this interview, holla at me, man. I’m independent. Hit me direct on the email. Whatever it is, B.
