Bun B Interview

17 Jun

First off, I’d like to thank everyone that rolled out to the MichiganHipHop.com Launch Party this weekend. It was an incredible success, and trust me when I say we’re just gettin’ started. Any ideas, questions, etc. that you have for MiHH, e-mail me at william(at)michiganhiphop.com.

Back to today’s business.

Monday, I got a Bun B interview posted on HipHopDX. This interview got me an e-mail from the best editor in the biz, Jake Paine (aka “Jake The Great,” lmao @ Emina). Homie said, and I quote, “You brought something different to the table. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this is a pivotal interview on his acceptance of the new class and adaptability. … Kudos to you, and so very happy to have you on the team man; part of the reason I take so much pride in this staff.” Ill.

Excerpt:

DX: Lupe has talked about how you showed up in the video of “Hip Hop Saved My Life,” and how you had taken him on a tour of Houston when he visited. What made you decide to do that?
BB:
I pretty much do [that with] most artists like that when they come to Houston, I try to let them see the city in a right way and give them a proper tour. You hear different things and there’s certain stuff on TV about Houston, and I wanted them to see. I wanted them to go to 5th Ward, I wanted them to go to 3rd Ward, I wanted them to go to South Park in the southwest side of Houston. There are things that I felt you need to see when you come to Houston.

DX: Do you think that that’s something that’s missing between the older generation and the new one?
BB:
I think so, to a certain extent. It was the way that I was brought in. I was blessed to have people like J Prince and Scarface [click to read], and the Too Short’s of the world embrace me and give me a couple of pointers. I’m just doing what I kind of feel is my obligation in this music industry. There’s not unity and loyalty in this game right now, and that’s why it’s falling apart. Everybody’s looking for self.
