Sound Session #315 (6-12-11)

Posted in Episodes, Interviews, Sound Session on June 13th, 2011 by Hyphen

I initially intended to share some extended thoughts on the NBA season wrapping up last night, but then I went and forgot to eat food today.  Uh, whoops.  So I’ll make this quick cause my kitchen is callin’ me and for the most part, Bill Simmons expertly summed up many of my takeaways on the game, series, and Lebron’s incredible ability to avoid shooting alienate the entire viewing public in this piece.

Anyway, congrats to the Mavs and the big homey, Seattle’s own (and one of my Arizona Wildcats too) Jason Terry!  It was a very entertaining series, but after hockey’s game 7 and the NBA Draft pass, we’ll be down to just baseball and the WNBA for the summer.  Well, baseball, the WNBA, and the Women’s World Cup.  You think I’m joking, but I’m with it.  Word to Abby Wambach.

Musically, another great week, but y’all already know how we do.  Shout to good friend of SNSS, Royce Da 5’9″ for calling in to discuss his new Bad Meets Evil project with Eminem.  In stores today!

Royce Da 5’9″ on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on November 26th, 2009 by Hyphen

You might recall that Slaughterhouse recently dropped by the Sound Session studio, but soon after, Royce Da 5’9″ returned for another show in Seattle and came through solo.  We covered a ton of topics in the 3 part conversation so I decided to put the full video online for y’all to enjoy.

Shout to Royce, easily one of the most down to earth and talented artists that we’ve had on the show.  When I was a high school kid losing my mind to all his verses in the late 90’s, I never would have thought I’d have the opportunity to kick it with him a few times.  Craziness.  Go cop Street Hop immediately and peep below for the interview.

Part 1:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • Reception of the Slaughterhouse project
  • Familial relationship of the group
  • Future of Slaughterhouse
  • Earliest memories of Eminem

Part 2:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • Working with Eminem as part of Bad Meets Evil
  • Learning recording techniques from Em
  • His favorite MC’s
  • Detroit’s knack for producing dope rappers
  • His thoughts on J. Cole

Part 3:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • The Charles Hamilton/J Dilla fiasco
  • His current relationship with Dr. Dre
  • His new Street Hop album
  • What he has left to prove in the game
  • Future Bar Exam mixtapes

If you would prefer to just listen to the discussion and toss it on your mp3 player, here’s the audio of the full interview:
