I've emceed at a Producer Showcase before so naturally I couldn't wait to attend the Battle of The Beatmakers in Toronto. With talent like Big Pops, 808 Gang, Burd & Keyz, Neenah, Vokab, and so much more I was very excited to see who would win.
Congratulations to Neenah who is the FIRST female producer to win Battle of The Beatmakers 2010. Check out the video as I ask her how she felt to win the title and I also had the chance to interview grammy nominated Boi-1da who was one of the guest judges. You can also check out HipHopCanada review and full gallery on Battle of The Beatmakers.
If you've watched our first interview then you know how wise Maestro is. On our second interview, Maestro discusses the brand new book Stick to your Vision, ego, and how he studies other emcees such as Saukrates, JD Era, Drake, K-OS, and K'naan.
I was honored to have JD Era join us to celebrate the 3 Year Anniversary of The Come Up Show. Since I have been a fan of Mr.Era for such a long time and with the release of the Th1rt3en Mixtape it was only right he join us for this special occasion.
Check out the interview as JD Era discusses the latest mixtape Th1rt3en, how Canada finds it's sound, and Era tells me how stays patient with all the inevitable success he is about to experience. Let's get you started with a freestyle first.
I was humbled to have the opportunity to interview Joel Ortiz and Royce Da 5'9 at The Opera House in Toronto.
Joel Ortiz tells me the meaning of Yaowa while Royce Da 5'9 explains how Slaughterhouse is a "highly efficient machine". One of the things that caught me off guard is when Royce says Hip-Hop is for children and that he isn't a fan anymore. Check out the interview to find out why.
