Check out my interview with Vents

How did you get started with all this??

I guess you mean being affiliated with the Flipmode/PaperRock …..Well I was actually looking into moving out of Miami. Then I got a call that changed my life around.. My Cousin Budda called me asking me if I still had my studio equipment. I told him yes and then he told me that Spliff Star just moved to Miami and he’s looking for a studio..I had just put together a mobile studio a few weeks prior so he  wouldn’t have to go anywhere… I’l bring the studio to him. Then we spoke on the phone he asked a few questions then gave me the Ok to come to his Miami Condo. The next day I showed up and we started to record what is now his next official release “One Shot Willy Part 2″. What’s really funny though, is that Spliff didn’t know I rap until 2 – 3 months later..lol…That’s when we recorded ” Wut R U Doin”, my first feature on a  Spliff Star record. After that we recorded alot more Banga’s!
What’s the message to transmit with your music??
My music comes from my surroundings, what I see or have seen in my life, sometimes what I’ve lived through or lived with. I guess it would be transmitting a struggle, a painful struggle with moments of  joy & happiness. I have a song titled “Life without Hip Hop” the message there explains a little about my life and the part Hip Hop played in it to make you ask you ask your self what part it played in your life. I also have a song called “My Radio” the message in there is to believe in yourself and move forward. In both songs you can picture yourself and it will help u stay focused and charged up, ready to concur any obstacle. Every song transmits something different I can’t call it.
What’s your method at the time of writing a song??
There really isn’t a method I stick to every time I write. Usually the beat influences me on the vibe I bring on a record. Sometimes my mood allows me to write without the beat, but usually when it comes to writing the beat talks to me and I just write down what it tells me!

Who are your music influences??
Bob Marley, Micheal Jackson, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, R.E.M….Poke (Trackmasters) He’s my mentor…and my cousin..lol
What plans do you have for the future??
Right now, I’m starting up a tour and working on getting some shows overseas and in the US with my PaperRock Family.

What has been the funniest prank you guys have been or took part while on tour or after a show?
Haven’t had that luxury just yet, really no time for games over here! I’m so focused! I go to perform and shut it down. After the show I’m working on my next career move whether it be a photo/video shoot, interview, or studio session. All the fun stuff happens on stage, I can’t recall any pranks going on but alot of funny moments though….lol
If you guys were stranded in the middle of nowhere after a show or while on tour. The help is 65 miles away from where you guys are, ¿Who would you guys send to look for help? And if while the rest wait, there’s no food and the only way to feed yourself is by eating each other, ¿Who would you eat first?
Lmao.. We would all take that mission together, taking turns carrying whatever it is we had to carry. We’d be armed with sling shots and razor sharp CD’s before we started to look at each other as meals..lol..I heard insects have protein in them so we’d eat bugs, lizards,and birds.  Hopefully we’d be able to video tape the whole thing, so I can come out with a DVD entitled “Hip Hop Survivor”…
What country you guys would love to play?
Spain!!!

With what bands you guys would love to share stage??

Snoop Dogg,Wiz Khalifa, Jay Z, Busta Rhymes & Spliff Star!
Are you OK, with the direction the band is going actually?
It’s all good right now,but I’m about to turn it up a few notches!
Any Closing Words?
Yeah!

Katy Perry has something to smile about!

Her hit song California Gurls featuring Snoop Dogg, topped the 4 million mark in paid downloads this week.

This is the third fastest song in digital history to have reached that mark. The Black Eyed Peas’ Boom Boom Pow took 23 weeks and Ke$ha’s Tik Tok took 24 weeks to reach that mark.

Another Katy hit, Hot N Cold, has also surpassed the 4 million mark with 4,597,000 downloads.

That’s incredible!

Is Katy the queen of digital music?? What do U think?

Although Lil’ Wayne is out of jail, the terms of his probation say he “may not consume or drink any substance containing alcohol” for the next 36 months.

He’s also prohibited from associating with anyone engaged in criminal activity, anyone with a criminal record, and must submit to random drug and alcohol testing.

If he violates any terms of his probation, he’ll be sent to prison to serve the remainder of his time!

Yeah you heard right Spliff Star was recently in Russia performing promoting his upcoming release ” One Shot Willy Part 2 “, check out the YouTube vid of the show below!

Rapper YOUNG BUCK is preparing to sue his former boss 50 CENT for $5 million (£3.3 million) after the hip-hop mogul reportedly refused to release the ex-G-Unit member from his record label.

Buck, real name David Darnell Brown, was booted out of the In Da Club hitmaker’s G-Unit group in 2008 amid allegations of disloyalty, but he remained on the G-Unit Records client roster despite attempts to quit his contract.

He was recently forced to file for bankruptcy after being slapped with a $300,000 (£200,000) tax bill from America’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS), but the embattled star denied he was facing financial ruin, insisting it was a calculated move to allow him to terminate his current recording and publishing contracts with 50 Cent’s abel.

Now Buck – who previously accused 50, real name Curtis Jackson, of attempting to destroy his career – is taking his ex-pal and his former manager Sha Money XL to court over the matter.

His attorney Lynda Brown says, “Mr. Brown intends to reorganize his debts and pay off the IRS in a timely manner… He will also be filing a lawsuit in the next 30-60 days against his former manager, G-Unit label and Mr. Curtis Jackson.”

Kid Cudi talks about his beef with Wale and his raging coke habit in the new issue of Complex.

Kid Cudi: Did you see that Wale interview that he just did, comparing us to sports? Let me clear this up: I’m incomparable to anybody. I don’t care how people take that. No one can compete with me. I’m unfuckwittable; no one can knock me off my shit. I’m an unstoppable force, I’m a bullet. My trajectory is to the sky. Niggas got to do something really spectacular to fuck with me and my realm, and niggas be so bitter that you hear it in their voice.

Speaking of Wale, when you hit that fan at your show last December, he came out with a line about it [“Throwin’ ’round wallets like the dude that Kid Cudi hit,” from “Thank You Freestyle”].


Kid Cudi:
It wasn’t a shot, it’s just a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass rapper. You can’t let that shit faze you. That’s one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack. Why would you even use that as a metaphor? Everybody think they Hov. Niggas ain’t got the magic like they think they do; there’s only a couple of wizards in this game. I’m a wizard and I know it.

Are your peers not seeing that?

Kid Cudi: The last album, I let people dis me, throw out those jabs in their verses and have their little slick remarks. This time around, I’m not fucking around. I have no time to think about other niggas. These other motherfuckers like feeding off another nigga’s energy, so they mention their name. You hear me talk about niggas? I don’t even talk about Kanye, and that’s my homeboy! They talk about Kanye like they’re bosom buddies with this nigga. Talking about “I be in Hawaii”—man, shut the fuck up, why you got to tell everybody everything? Then people like Wale get mad that ‘Ye ain’t give him no beats—’Ye ain’t give you no beats because we ain’t fucking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t fuck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you. The shit is a service, it’s a quality of a certain standard. Niggas are just so thirsty it’s ridiculous. I’ve been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an asshole. These people don’t know my fucking life—now I’m going to give them something to talk about.

And what did Wale have to say about it?

And speaking of cocaine


How heavy did the drug use get?

Kid Cudi: I started doing cocaine to get through interviews, ’cause people wanted to know a lot about my personal life and I wasn’t prepared for a 60 Minutes interview every time. Doing bumps I was able to get through the day, but then I would smoke weed to calm me down—it was the only way I could get through the day without people noticing I was doing it.
Did you ever feel like you had a problem?

Kid Cudi: I never thought it was a problem, but I was definitely high-fiving death a couple of times. It took a lot for me to talk about shit like this on the album. I don’t feel like I need to explain myself to anyone besides the fans. My fans don’t believe shit until they hear me say it. And those are true Kid Cudi fans. I want them to know the story.

Young Buck got Raided

Federal tax agents raided rapper Young Buck’s Nashville home and confiscated personal items to satisfy his tax debt. Young Buck’s Tennessee home was ransacked by several armed federal agents … TMZ has learned — and it was all over $300,000 in allegedly unpaid taxes.

According to Young’s rep, IRS agents rolled up to the platinum-selling rapper’s house in Nashville this morning to go on a repossession rampage over the alleged tax debt — seizing assets like recording equipment, jewelry, furniture, his platinum wall plaques … and even his kids’ PlayStation.

The rep tells us, the feds in question were packing heat — in the form of a shotgun — and warned Buck not to interfere with the raid.

As for how he fell so far behind in debt, the former G-Unit member tells us, “This IRS situation came about because I trusted accountants, lawyers, and managers to handle my business for me while I focused on making music. From now on, I am going to stay on top of my own business.”
