Is ’4EvaNADay’ a preview of what the album will end up being or are you doing something totally different on that one?
Yeah, definitely. It’s still… [the same] as far as subject matter or content, but it’s kind of a glimpse into… I’m just really going for a creative aspect on this next project, actually trying to make a cohesive project that’s more artistic than anything, in my mind. That’s really where I’m trying to go with that.
Can you talk a bit about the vibe you had going into creating ‘Live From the Underground’? Has it changed much during the album’s progression?
Just that same consciousness, man… You know? Gritty, but what people have really come to love from my music is the soulful aspect but the only thing now is that I have to find another way to create music besides the sampling. Because I’ve run into a lot with sample clearances and trying to reach out to publishers and things of that nature so now I’m just trying to make music that sounds old but it’s really not. I had the opportunity to work with Mike Harnett who’s an amazing guitarist. I’m excited to do music, man.
What kinds of things happening in today’s landscape, either social or political, really makes you angry or pleases you?
Man, it’s so many different things. I think as far as the social aspect of things, a lot of people work a job and they work very hard but you never can get a leg up, or you never can really save or put back because of so many circumstances dealing with loans and things of that nature that are built to keep you in the same loop.
