Published

on

Undeniably the uprising star of the drill movement, the 600 affiliated driller, 600 Breezy went throught a lot. While his body holds the stigmatas of those many wars, his drill holds their scriptures. Few are the ones who survived, and the bloodshed is still to this day an ongoing situation in Chicago. We had a chance to talk to him and here are his words.

First of all thanks for giving us a chance to know you better, can you introduce yourself for the profanes ?

A man of God that dont take no shit from no one, loyal father of 2 born and raised in Chicago South Side, The Ceo and founder of 600Cartel with many rap names, Breezo, Max Payne, Thotman Breezo, I am a student of hustling and thankful to make money from my hardship and pain from losing so many brothers to the streets.

Your lifestories’s spin offs have propelled you to the forefront of the drill scene and so has been your music. Can you walk us throught your woes.

L’a was outta here and his death was crazy Peoples was disrespecting him to build up so I took it on myself to diss back but I didnt know it would stick and effect the city but he deserve respect period.

Why talk about opps, go to youtube look up 600breezy and that era happened and now I am here. As for Drake, he is a music lover and eye for talent, he often played my music on OVO radio and we rock as homies, he is a very interesting person and has been through a lot too.

Sometimes, people think rappers ain’t bout that life, but he is on the road all the time and has to address any situation he can be confronted to on a daily basis. Like me, I went through some much on this street shit that I have a lot to say in my music.

The last video you released featuring Young Swav is straight fire, how deep runs your connection with New York’s factions ?

They rock with me and I definetly rock with NY Period I receive a lot of love and support, Young Swav is from Polo Grounds, in Harlem and we slid thru and still making rounds Salute to the Real and True.

Twenty two & nine have been behind bars for a while, both were found guilty of first degree murder, CDai has got 38 and Rondo could still face from 45 to life. You hold Tay responsible for their condemnations ?

No, he just played a unfortunate role that effected their case. don’t you fear that if anything would happen to him, you could be hold responsible for it and how different your lifestyle has been on a daily basis since their incarceration anything happen to Tay 600 wouldnt have anything to do with me, that statement he had to give against his brothers, probably makes him feel that nothing else could happen since he is locked up and assisted in their case.

I wish they all was in the studio and on a stage performing than being caught up in the alleged events, that i am not aware to what is true or not, beyond the news reports and court documents. I pray for the guys, and just want the Gods to set them free so we can make music and money period.

Drake have been f**king heavy with the chicago drill scene. First with Louie then Bibby and now you. Do you think the 6 god has been linking up beyond his love for the music, for protection & therefor uses chiraq’s violent reputation to its own benefit.

Hell No, Drake wants to see u win, he told me I could change and add positive twist to it if I got focused at the time I was just Hyped I reached his radar, but more and more I see his genius in see something in me before I did and others! He hustling and I am working on mine to be able to charge 500,000 a show for 60mins and hire my team and make them wealthy!

You released an album & a mixtape on the same day with a total of thristy songs. How do you explain the moves you make to keep promoting your craft and how do you position yourself in the music industry ?

My team is ran by my auntie and uncle are seasoned music industry consultant and I partner with Empire to distribute my music and I have Audible Treats as my Pr Team. With those combinations we are always planning and I am always recording, and learing my role as Ceo and artist & balancing it as a Father of two.

Fifteen for a featuring & twenty grand for a show can quickly add up and turn aspiring artist into money making machine. Buzzing out of NY, Gary Vaynerchuk, adresses hustle, investements and entrepeneurship. where do you see yourself in ten years and how would achieve your rise to the a million dollar empire ?

An example to my kids and my family, my neighborhood, and fellow hustlers, that the dream is real and its how you approach it, and handle it and most important maintain to pass down wealth, that i didn’t enjoy growing up. I own my first company now 600 Cartel and will have real estate , and invest in profitable moves to make sure my kids…

Would you have any advice for an upcoming artist who would like to make it in the rap game?

Have a seasoned team, have a plan, put God first, and let no one take money or opputunity away from your or ykur family. Be independent and have great partnerships with 3rd larties that empower your vision and brand.

Last but not least, what is up next for the Sixo Breezo in the upcoming months?

Leading Scorers Edition, Max Payne & a record for the ladies Thot Man Breezo.

ADDITIONNAL STORY  : The worst thing to me was being locked up when my first born was boy and I wasnt their to greet my son, & I told him when i got out that I will always be there and make a way, now I was in La when my second child was born and I ran to the airport to get to Chicago to make sure my daughter new she was loved by her Daddy and I let the world know I will cause a war over her too. The best industry story I have is my pops called my Auntie Rita Lee to tell me to stop Rapping and waiving all the Prop guns in my Videos, She had just got back from Germany I think and we linked and she said they was crazy and would help me become a successful, next thing I know I am the CEO of My own label 600Cartel signed a non exclusive distrubtion deal with Empire, by Ghazi then I am in austin texas on MYmixtapez stage making hiatory with 600, 300 & OTF right after Lil Bibby and GBHerbo just killed that shit, to On a couple Tour dates On the WestCoast with Fredo Santana, which was all love for the City, & then shit I was in Ny and my Uncle Tony Austin had me kicking with Kevin Liles and my savage ass did not even know who he was lmao, such a honor in hind sight. To me and my nigga young Swav shooting 6ixhunned that is now playing on BetJams, to fucking being asked to be on Drill King Cover! GOD IS GOOD! LIKE ANYTHING YOU MUST SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GREAT PEOPLE THAT WANT TO SEE YOU WIN AND YOU GOTTA WORK AND EARN THE RESPECT FROM THEIR

ADDITIONNAL STORY : Being from Chicago you are offered a lot of choices and some of the choices are somewhat survival based as a young man of color in the inner city of Chicago and some south suburbs like Harvey. We have to defend our family and friends and hood just like the military does for the Government and OUR COUNTRY, seeing your homies die right in front of you, and for me my nigga Dthang in my arms 2011, and it really did something to me, me and Fredo Santana was talking and we both said how weed helps us with PTSD, I cant even imagine what the soldiers overseas have to deal with, when motherfuckers are leaving bombs and got snipers and shit on your ass. I was a honor roll kid with a curfew at 8:30 weekday and 9:30 on weekends My Pops wasn’t for none of the bullshit, but I could get girls and all the fun happen when i came in …

INTERVIEW

Ski Mask The Slump God States That Kodak Black is 2 Pac

Published

on

By

Ski Mask The Slump God pulled up at the 92.3 LA studio earlier today to talk what is currently going on in his career, how things has evolved for him and the Very Rare crew and more

The radio hosts went kinda straight to the point opening the discusion with the recurrent statement that the Florida emerging rap scene have kind of coined what is refered to as ‘Soundcloud rapper’ now-a-day. True in a way, as all the artist from the UG movement such as XXXTentacion and the Members only or Lil Pump, Pouya and more have unned the musical platform with plays adding up to multiple billions.

Lil Pump is number one but X’s wing man is now number two. A big achievement for the underground Emcee who could have stayed in the shadow of X’s popularity.

The Slump God Aka Stokeley also talks about the transition that will be necessary, due to his incresing fame, from free music to monetized platform :

‘I even told my friends about that, and like tweeted about. I was like, eventually I’m not gonna be able to drop music for free anymore. Of course I’m gonna have to make the transition, I’m scared too, but I feel like the fanbase that I built so far it’s like strong enough to go on another platform either way. But soundcloud is definitely useful in like successful’ the rapper said.

They then talked about XXX’s album ’17’ being number one on Itunes and that Kendrick actually even tweeted about it.

and bounced straight to fact that both radio hosts were kind of amazed when he released ’17’, as he didn’t used the distorded scremo style the were famous for. In fact Ski acknowledged it, and tells Kev that he knew people would expect X to drop some violent ‘Look at Me‘ music but instead he took another creative direction and channeled a deeper side of his musical culture.

However, X’s name came up at least a dozen time in the 4 minutes of the interview, it shows how hard people link everything that emerged from X’s popularity as him being the source of it. Despite the popular belief, we, at DrillKing have always been Ski’s fan and actually stated many times that the first we heard of and felt sonnicaly in love with was The slump god with the Keith Ape single in our ‘Ski Mask Is a Pure Genius‘ article published in the 600 Breezy hosted issue of DK magazine.

Therefore Kev decide to focus on Ski’s future release, but mistakenly link the artist’s music to the distorded style which he hasn’t use for ages now, since he kinda use the same ‘catch me outside’ flow pattern on super suffocated sampled instrumental, where he delivers what could have been Quavo shaggy-influenced son. Nevertheless the Floridian lyricist doesn’t take it personnel and answer in the most transparent way :

‘I want to have at least a little bit of everything a little bit because I also sing to I want to have distortion when I’m clean when I bring back boomed up one song I want to have like because I hate different varieties and genres to be the best artists that can be so I’m trying’
They then moved on, on how their crew influence today’s hip hop scene, and how they inspire people. Did few random questions, which lead to clear the record concerning the fact that Ski isn’t actually from Broward County but from “Deep Side” a Fort LAuderdale slum, on Martin Luther King Boulevard and 31st Street right across the street for the flea market, for those who wondered. That he spent times in Jersey, in Georgia and in New York too.
While quoting his MC influence such as Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes and Method Man, the rapper talks about ‘meeting’ NAS at Mass Appeal :
Ski: I met nas too recently I was there doing like a interview for mass appeal and then I go to the bathroom to take a piss he was like he looks up at these washing his face I’m looking right and I walk in a star like
Kev: that’s gotta be awkward like you talk to him in the bathroom
Ski: like hey what’s up man yeah yeah I know I was in there and you was in there but you know interesting introduction yeah I just took a piss but I’m a huge fan. it’s crazy cuz like you just walk in the bathroom you’re walking right in the stall and not the reverse like I took some back steps although that’s crazy man.
 For the record, they were the one to invite Rob Stone few days after XXXTentacion was brutaly knocked out, on stage at his San Diego show. Few know, but Ski also got beat up during a show by Stone and his crew a while back and ended up unconscious and butt-naked at the back of the venue. However the radio host claims he hate to the touch on the negative but they needed to get his side of the story.
On of the biggest statement he has during the interview is when is asked who is the biggest in Florida right now and his answer is on point :
“I try to tell people like Kodak Black is a fuckin 2Pac [Applause] I never seen anything like it in my life bro cuz it’s like in Florida nobody just got you trippin. it’s good to hear somebody like Kodak when you actually go to Florida because I feel like a lot of people don’t get to make that trip. A lot of people, or you know taking it in on that you see go yeah like when you go to any of those clubs you’re just riding around and you hear it, you just understand immediately like wow this is the vibe of the city.”

A$AP Rocky Confrontational Interview In His Hotel Room In Shanghai

Published

on

Rap star & Fashion Icon A$AP Rocky allowed Lou Stoppard to interview him in his hotel room in Shanghai for the confrontational ‘In Your Face’ series.

Right after his show in Shangai, the rap superstar and fashion icon authorized SHOWStudio to proceed an intense 17-minute interview in his hotel room.

A close-up square shot of Flacko with tame lights will be enough to set the mood and start the question.

First asked how he felt about his show, the young rapper answered that he feels electrified especially when the crowd is very responsive. He is then asked what is it like to be a man in 2017, but apparently, he doesn’t get how deep the question was and keeps on puffing on his joint. Reinterpreting the question to what it is to be ‘THE’ man in 2017, we can clearly understand that he lives that life. A mix of confidence and what seems to be a stuck-up attitude, the New York emcee then clarifies the fact that he is not a role model.

However, it is crystal clear, Rocky is a brilliant business man who managed to keep his net worth from media outlets. As a lot of young influencers might have went the same path, Rocky has built longevity in his career and is surely not going anywhere.

yeah and I think I’d do a good job at being responsible for those who look up to me as far as making good decisions career wise far as being entrepreneur making money commodities entities etcetera … So yeah but as far as me you know signing up my hack not smoking shit like that fuck that man.

When asked about the Raf Simons worshiping he has spread for the past years, the A$ap front man makes his point.

“I mean Raf is a pioneer …  within himself Raf working with Jil Sander  and there was a lot of his early collections I connected to, so you know, since I was a teenager, all his stuff have been about being rebellious and being a teenager and what not, you know. I think raf signs and his aesthetics was crazy too so you I fucked with raf since day one, you know as a designer and as an artist.”

Back in 2013, the rapper took issue with ‘ the gay thing’ in the NYdailyNews interview, Lou gave Rocky the opportunity to clear up his feelings on the fashion industry, gay people and the hip hop community standards concerning the subject.

” I don’t know if it really was ever really a problem. But it sure was thing or is it a thing … You know for me I live life, I don’t really prejudge people or have preconceived notions about gay people, no shit like that. You got good people and bad people, it is what it is, [ …] I think this was what’s gonna be, is what’s gonna be and like you know how I said prior, you’re not doing a good job at being a leader because it’s just like those kind of leadership skills and showing people that having, you know, judging people without meeting them is just not, it’s just wrong.”

On the drug side, he shuts down the British interviewer telling her to stop making it sound like he does ‘Drugs’ and quote Bob Marley who conjured Marijuana as earth natural gift. However the rapper only acknowledge using one drug, marijuana, but kind of stumble upon the question:

“I ain’t justifying what I do, I’m just letting you know it is like I don’t do no fucking “drugs”. Like that’s at the same time, it’s like to each his own. There’s people who do tobacco and it kills them quicker than half of the drugs I used
He also talks on how many time he felt in love and what part it plays in his creative process. How women influence his vision but denies being a feminist and could come across mysogynistic due to his A$ap Rocky side.
He also goes deep on how he feel about the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, talks about people who bandwagoned it and rephrase it, as he does not fully developped the concept, into : ‘Does black lives matter to white people ?’
Watch the video up above to learn more about Rocky State of mind.

I’m everything I wanted to be, I turned out even better
