Big K.R.I.T. on Sound Session (2014 KUBE Summer Jam Video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on June 19th, 2014 by Hyphen

Along with Kendrick Lamar, we sat down with another one of our favorite artists at KUBE’s Summer Jam last week, the one and only Big K.R.I.T..  We’ve had Young Krizzle on the show a few times before and he never disappoints.

This time, he spoke about his upcoming Cadillactica album, the criticism he received for Live From The Underground, and the differences in his creative process between mixtapes and albums.  K.R.I.T. also revealed he’ll be working with other producers on Cadillactica and gave us some insight on the tips they shared with him in the studio.  Among other topics, he ended by discussing the motivation behind his “Mt. Olympus” track, the South’s ongoing battle for lyrical respect, and the feeling of when fans connect with his music and support it on a deeper level.

Shout to K.R.I.T. and Dutch for the love, as always, and the First Ladies for filming/editing!

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!

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.

Sound Session #465 (5-11-14) – 9 Year Anniversary

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 12th, 2014 by Hyphen

SNSS

Well, well, well, this sure snuck up on us.  This past episode of SNSS marked our 9 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!  We feel overwhelmingly blessed and privileged to be able to present SNSS to you each week, and many thanks are in order for our supporters and management at KUBE 93, plus all our listeners in the local community and worldwide.  We’re here 100% for the music and culture, so it’s certainly not about us, but we’re flattered every time we reach one of these milestones.  Next up, show #500 and then next year, the SNSS 10 year anniversary.  We’ll definitely have something special planned for that one…

In the interim, we just keep on doing what we do.  Are we the Tim Duncan of independent hip-hop shows on commercial radio?  Perhaps, but since when is that a bad thing?  Hall of Fame numbers and hopefully this is just the beginning.  On this week’s episode, we were joined in studio by our homies V. Dot and Tasman Holloway (formerly known as Louis V), plus an emerging R&B singer from Tacoma, Kalieb Nash.  If you’re curious whether he can sing or saaaaaaing, check out the 2nd part of our interview where he laid down a little acapella for us.  That boy good.

Of course, we couldn’t do a show on Mother’s Day without paying homage to the women that brought us here and continue to make the world go around.  Hope you guys enjoy the multiple throwbacks and remember what Kanye said, “it don’t gotta be Mother’s Day, or your birthday / For me to just call and say Hey Mama.”  Give that lady a call if you’re blessed enough to still have her in your life.  Love you Mom.
