[Interview] Sha Prince talks Latex & Perfume, drawing the line on personal topics and more

I would like to start off by thanking those who tuned into our first live interview on The Come Up Show TV! The idea was inspired by a BBM conversation (Yes I said that) with Sha Prince who is releasing a brand new mixtape titled Latex & Perfume today on DJ Booth. The interview is conducted by yours truly, J.R. and I'm really excited for you to take it in as we covered a variety of topics. It might take you a few days to realize what an amazing collection of music Sha Prince put together for Latex & Perfume, we've received an advance copy which you can read the full review track by track of what we thought. We first started off the interview with the title of the project which definitely makes you wonder what Latex & Perfume means!? Sha broke down how the title and the whole concept came together. Read the full article breaking down the interview after the jump! Please comment as well your feedback is appreciated since it's our first live video interview!

[Interview] Skratch Bastid talks Spring Up EP, favourite Toronto emcee, Producer Album and more

Last month we had the pleasure of having DJ Skratch Bastid spin a live set on The Come Up Show Radio. If you caught the show live then you remember how amazing the set was; if you missed out don't worry we got you covered with a quick sample of his performance. After the set we had the opportunity to chop it up and I think it will be of interest to you especially if you are a Shad fan (WHO ISN'T?).  J.R. asked Skratch how long it took to record his collaborative EP with Shad, The Spring Up, if you had to guess I bet you wouldn't say TWO DAYS. Thats how quickly they put the majority of the project together. Skratch also expanded on the recording process and told us if the extra joints that didn't make the EP will ever be released or not. Now I know I told everyone that you wouldn't be able to hear ANY of Skratch's set recorded and that you had to listen to the radio show live. Skratch granted us special permission and I'm happy to treat you with an unreleased verse on Shad's "Stylin" from Chip Fu of the Fu-Schnickens (shh!!! for your ears only). Since we were playing Rich Kidd instrumentals the latter part of the interview I asked Skratch who his favourite emcees from Toronto are which you have to watch to find out! We had to know what Skratch is up to next before we let him go. He told us he is interested in creating a Skratch Bastid Producer Album along the lines of Mark Ronson, where he has a whole bunch of musical styles and artists that he can showcase. If you've had the pleasure to see a live show by Skratch Bastid then you know he loves to play all types of music and that Hip-Hop is his first passion that led him to explore of all types of music.

[Interview] Haviah Mighty live Performance on The Come Up Show Radio

The EP is a story, a bad relationship, it's starts off by being alone and I've accepted it, I meet someone stuffs happens and it ends up badly. That is the concept of the record. Haviah Mighty.
I will never forget the feelings I felt after our interview with Haviah Mighty. To quote a listener "I was supposed to be in my car for 5 minutes but I ended staying inside my car for 45 minutes, she blew my mind!" Haviah Mighty has always found an effective way to emit emotion through words and poetry, as a child Haviah Mighty began vocal training at the age of 4, she sang for seven years it was when she was 12 that Haviah began combining her love for music and her love for language. Inspired by 50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Tryin' she released her debut mixtape No Studio in 2010, #Eighteen in 2011, and her latest tape Bars, Girls, & Bars in 2012, which you can all download on her website. Performing her brand new records for the first time ever on radio we are proud to present Haviah Mighty on The Come Up Show. Check it out and let me know what you think of her!
