[Interview] Mac Miller talks about his most personal album “Watching Movies with the sound off”

Mac Miller, Sonreal and Rich Kidd, Come Up Boys @ UWO

The last time we interviewed Mac Miller was almost exactly two years ago, it was his first time ever in Canada, and he was just 18 years old. Fast forward to 2013 Mac Miller is already off to a great start, he was awarded Complex Magazine “Man Of Next Year” award which is a spotlight on the artists who are set to transform "the worlds of Music, Sports, Art and Design, Pop Culture, and Style". As the winner Mac received a luxurious custom made varsity jacket designed by Marc Ecko, a custom Fisker Karma car valued over 100 grand, and he shared with us how that honor felt. Mac Miller also opened up about his upcoming album Watching Movies With The Sound Off, he told us it's the most personal album he has ever recorded and why he decided to open up with us. I asked him if he felt a little bit of insecurity about releasing very introspective music and how he feels people will respond. Mac answers these questions and what he has planned for the rest of 2013. Check this out and more in our interview with Mr. Most Dope aka Mac Miller. P.S.

I caught up with Sonreal and Rich Kidd on their Canadian tour stop at Fanshawe College in London, On. Our interview started with discussing the humour in Rich Kidd's music and he tells us why it's important to him to keep it playful, SonReal gave us a perfect example by reciting one of his rhymes in the song Best Believe. Even though The Closers (SonReal and Rich Kidd) have worked plenty of times together, they tell us what they've learned from performing together and how to deliver a show that is full of energy, flow and fun! They also share with us why it was important for them to record the album together instead of electronically as is the norm today in the music industry.

[Interview] D-Sisive and Muneshine call it quits on Hip-Hop

I ain't taking shit over bro, if I was taking anything over we would have taken over four albums ago, I'm very frustrated, that's not even a joke, I did Peterborough last night, there was six people. D-Sisive
Wow where do you get started on a interview like this? With the countless of interviews I've conducted I have been able to get authentic answers and insights from all types of artists. This interview right here with D-Sisive and Muneshine has to be number one for me because of their honesty, their vulnerability, and frustation they are feeling with the music industry. Right after their performance at the Jonestown 3 album release party at the Rivoli, D-Sisive got us caught up what he has been up to in the past year; his feelings about his third Juno nomination for Rap Recording of the year and the Asian Elvis Mixtape release. What I wasn't expecting is D-Sisive and Muneshine telling me they are done with Rap music. Check the full post to read my full summary on this interview!
