HRDCVR (Elliott Wilson & Danyel Smith) on Sound Session

Posted in Interviews, Sound Session on June 18th, 2014 by Hyphen

Two of the preeminent hip-hop journalists of our time, Elliott Wilson and Danyel Smith, also happen to be married and one of the more interesting power couples in the industry.  They’re both hugely successful on their own (currently, Elliott runs Rap Radar and Danyel runs The Smithian, while doubling as a journalism fellow at Stanford) and now they’re finally collaborating on a project together.  Sound Session listeners may remember the episode Elliott co-hosted with us not too long ago.

We talked to the duo on SNSS all about HRDCVR, which they describe as “a book-shaped magazine by and for the new everyone.”  It’s an interesting and important project for anyone interested in hip-hop, pop culture, social media, and/or journalism in 2014, so I highly suggest reading up on it via their Kickstarter and listening to our interview above.

Support creativity and equal representation!

Kendrick Lamar on Sound Session (2014 KUBE Summer Jam Video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on June 18th, 2014 by Hyphen

In what’s becoming a bit of a tradition, J. Moore and I chopped it up with Kendrick Lamar at our Summer Jam last week (if you missed our last K. Dot Summer Jam interview, peep it here).  In front of the natural backdrop of The Gorge, Kendrick talked about his interests outside of music, the possibility of scoring films in the future, what international tour life is like, being an accessible as a celebrity, and more, before taking the stage and performing in front of 15k fans.

Shout to Kendrick, Interscope, TDE, and KUBE for coordinating and the First Ladies for filming/editing!

Yes, I know I’m slacking on posting the last 2 episodes of Sound Session, plus a few interviews we’ve done, but real life is mad hectic right now.  I’m only briefly interrupting it to post the video for what’s probably my favorite song of 2014, Full Crate & Mar’s “Man x Woman.”

Dopeness.

Freddie Gibbs on KUBE 93′s Sound Session (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on May 30th, 2014 by Hyphen

One of the dopest MC’s in the game and one of the realest dudes in the industry, Freddie Gibbs has been one of our favorites for years on Sound Session.  We’ve ran into him numerous times but amazingly never had him in studio for a SNSS interview…until now.

Freddie came through the KUBE studios on 5/24/14 while in Seattle on tour with Tech N9ne and we chopped it up for a bit about his love for the city (its greenery and Seahawk Richard Sherman, in particular), growing up and starting his rap career in a tough environment in Indiana, and later making the move to Los Angeles to pursue music.  We also talked about his approach to the industry and how he can appeal to a wide fan base, before touching on his recent projects with Madlib and DJ Fresh.

Peep the full interview above for more and be sure to catch Freddie when he’s in your town.  Shout to Archie for coordinating and the First Ladies for shooting and editing the piece.

SNSS

With J. Moore out in Minnesota this week (along with a large Seattle contingent) at Rhymesayers’ festival, Soundset, I hosted this episode of SNSS solo, with an interview from our homey Rocky Sandoval.  This week had a great mix of sounds, ranging from harder tracks from Meek Mill, Big K.R.I.T., Boaz, and Cam’Ron to smoother cuts from Vanessa Elisha, Esty, Sam Smith, All About She, Young & Sick, and Coldplay.  We even tossed in a Sublime/Pharcyde remix to recognize Brad Nowell’s passing 18 years ago to the day.  RIP.

Don’t think there’s a show out there with this kind of range  in less than 2 hours, but you already knew that.  Good music is the only requirement.  Hope you enjoy!
