Problem on Sound Session (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on September 25th, 2014 by Hyphen

Problem traveled up the west coast from L.A. to Seattle and dropped by the KUBE 93 studios to chop it up with us for Sound Session on 9/10/14.

We discussed his background, how he originally started by producing on a PlayStation, how he started rapping for chicks, and how he developed arguably the best ad-lib in rap (WHAT!?!).  After talking about his past, he spoke on his upcoming album, “Karma,” and Diamond Lane Music Group’s strategy to make it his biggest release yet.  And as you might expect with a passionate LA native, the conversation ended with Problem explaining why Kobe is the greatest Laker of all time and who’s better, Kobe or MJ.

Big shout to Problem and all of Diamond Lane Music Group, plus the First Ladies for shooting/editing!

Sound Session #483 (9-14-14)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 24th, 2014 by Hyphen


Apologies for the delay in archiving the past 2 episodes of SNSS but you know, even if it takes a little time, we always gotchu.  On this episode, we ran through some great records from Alchemist, Vince Staples, Run The Jewels, Big Sean, Porter Ray, MC Lyte, Common, Prince, Sampha, SPZRKT, King, BANKS, and more.  We also world premiered the new single from Problem featuring Lil’ Jon, produced by Jahlil Beats, called “Andele.”  It’s about 2 weeks later and it still hasn’t hit the net, so peep it on SNSS first and remember where you heard it first.

Speaking of Problem, be sure you peep the full video of our interview with Compton’s finest right here.  We talked all about his background, upcoming album, and why Kobe is the greatest Laker of all time…and if he’s better than Mike.
