[Interview] Iron Solomon talks about his debut album, his transition from battle rapper to rap artist, and his comedic side
Interview by: Martin Bauman Iron Solomon is on a roll right now. After just releasing his debut album, Monster, and receiving a shout out from Drake, the Manhattan battle rapper turned emcee appears poised to establish himself as a strong presence in hip-hop. All this after having already cemented his legacy as a legend in the rap battle circuit, taking out Immortal Technique in his teens and later battling the likes of Jin, Math Hoffa (in a classic Smack DVD battle), 106 & Park champion Avalanche, and E. Ness. The Come Up Show caught up with Iron last week while he was on tour in Seattle with Boot Camp Clik, and discussed his debut album, his transition from battle rapper to rap artist, the current state of hip-hop, his love for New York City, and his comedic side, among other things. Hit the skip to read the full interview.
There's something about a posse cut that, when done right, is just undeniably dope. Australian hip-hop producer M-Phazes recently teamed up with New York's Brown Bag AllStars and dropped the video for "What It's All About", one of the tracks off his latest remix album, Phazed Out. M-Phazes crafts a funky, head-nodding beat for the Brown Bag AllStars to rap circles around. These guys definitely live up to their name in the video, with 40oz bottles everywhere. If you're a follower of Grind Time or KOTD, you'll recognize Soul Khan as one of the Brown Bag crew.
