Black Thought :: Stay True 2 Your Roots

Black_Thought_for_GCF

Last weekend Rotterdam was hosting another group of amazing artists, during the 38th edition of North Sea Jazz Festival. The Legendary Roots Crew is not an unfamiliar band to play this festival as they have performed there before. Having known lead MC/singer Black Thought for a few years now, we never took the time out to sit down and talk on camera. This time, we did. Only to find out he also always wanted to do an interview with little ol Pay. 🙂

Black Thought talks about balancing life as an artist and his personal life, being on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the band’s new album “& Then You Shoot Your Cousin”, which is due around March next year, and he talks about how important it is to stay true to where you are coming from, in order to be successful as an artist.

Chuck D :: Freedom & Independence

Its been quite some years since I last spoke to Chuck D, one of Public Enemy’s frontmen. The Hip Hop group, that started a movement with political awareness in their raps in the 80’s, was headlining the Boogiedown Breda festival this year. As always its a pleasure to talk to Chuck, especially when it comes to him sharing his knowledge. He talks about his movement today and tells us that the difference between him and most artists out there today, is Freedom & Independence. Watch as Chuck tells us about the bigger picture.
