I didn't plan to release our first interview of 2011 until later this week. However, it seems like we forgot to set the Jay Electronica interview on private through The Come Up Show Youtube Channel. Few hours later, In Flex We Trust posted the interview and the blogs went crazy! In our rare interview, Jay Electronica describes his collaboration with Nas, status of the debut album, and what keeps him happy.
As we go into a brand new year, I would like to reflect on what The Come Up Show has accomplished in 2010. The great memories created with interviews like Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, and D-Sisive. Interviews I NEVER expected with Reflection Eternal and the first Summer Jam Canada with Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, Rick Ross and T-Pain was a part of history. The Best of 2010 is for our fans we've gained in 2010 and a great time capsule for our fans who have been supporting since day one. Make sure to watch the video in full as we have included a sneak peek of 2011 with Jay Electronica, Bun-B, Brother Ali, and Pharoahe Monch. Thank you very much for you love and support. Happy New Year and Best Wishes from The Come Up Show Team.
From Meridian, Mississippi his album, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, garnered critical acclaim in 2010. Former President of G-Unit Records and current Senior VP of A&R at Def Jam Records, Sha Money XL, signed him to the label as one of his first priorities. I'm proud to present my interview with Big K.R.I.T. as he tells which PlayStation game started his beat making. Big K.R.I.T. also discusses why he feels blessed to be a part of the new generation of emcees like Wiz Khalifa and how important it is to have a strong team around you.
I'm doing music to let know people know they aren't by themselves, what we go through spiritually, financially, emotionally, and just putting it in my music. Big K.R.I.T.
I got the opportunity to kick it with Wiz Khalifa at his first show in Toronto for the Wake and Bake tour. Tickets sales at the Toronto show were so successful that Union Events (promotion company) moved it from The Opera House (850 capacity) to the Sound Academy (3230 capacity) and the show was sold out. In our interview, Wiz Khalifa tells me why he likes Canada, his reaction when Drake made a surprise appearance during the show, and why he thinks the Kush and Orange Juice Mixtape was so successful.

I always knew that if you want something, you can go get it, nothing is stopping you from getting whatever you want. When I was 16, all my friends were partying, I wanted to stay inside and make beats because that's what I love. Boi-1daThis is the man who has produced for Hip-Hop/R&B upper echelon.
