Listen to Nipsey Hussle’s Interview on the Rap Radar Podcast

I know I’m a little bit late but I deleted/deactivated most of my social media accounts two months ago, so since then I haven’t really been keeping myself up to date on all of the latest music and/or interviews. This morning, though, I was watching old videos on YouTube when a suggestion for this Rap Radar interview with Nipsey Hussle appeared in my YouTube feed. I’m a big Naybahood Nip fan, music and business-wise, so it was a must I take some time out to listen to this.

If you know like I do, then you know Nipsey stays dropping gems in not only his music, but his interviews as well. So, I couldn’t not listen to this and pass up what he was dropping with B. Dot and Elliott Wilson. As expected, he discusses his phenomenal and motivating Grammy-nominated album Victory Lap, projects he’s currently working on and much more! Check it out!

Erykah Badu Interviews Kendrick Lamar

While awaiting his next flight (due to having just missed one), Kendrick Lamar sits down for an exclusive telephone interview with Ms. Badu.

Lamar goes into detail about how he handles his newfound super-stardom and the life that accompanies it, all the while remaining humble and not letting his success go to his head.

I still know who I am and I haven’t let everything consume me… I’m just taking it one day at a time,” Lamar says. 

When asked what he is out to achieve as a musician, he speaks on shedding a positive light on his hometown of Compton and being able to inspire others.

Diverting the subject from music and fame, Badu moves on to more personal questions, such as what Lamar’s take on love and God is, to which he replies,

What is love?” he reiterates. “Love to me is God. God to me is love. It’s the ruler of all things, whether it’s with a person or with music or with your T.V. I feel like it’s this energy. God is energy, love is energy.

Bravo, Lamar. Bravo.

Jhené Aiko Speaks on Debut Album "Souled Out," Working With No I.D. & More

In an interview with ThisIsRnB, Jhené Aiko reveals that aside from putting on the finishing touches, her Island Def Jam debut album, Souled Out, is “pretty much done.” She also speaks on what it is like working with producer No I.D. and runs down a couple of other producers she has worked with for the album.
When it comes to being an artist, she says that it’s about “expressing your story.”

When it’s coming from the source, then it’s just more believable. People are connecting with it more and it’s just..it’s more important. It’s more special that way. And that’s how I write, like it takes me..it takes..after each song, I’m literally like.. I’ve lost like a piece of me because I put it into that song. So it’s hard for me to like..give it away.

Jhené also goes into detail about how effective marijuana is when it comes to writing and recording her music.

I got more into like..meditation and stuff like that, and like channeling those same type of thoughts without actually needing..you know, a drug. It’s pretty effective. It takes a lot more concentration and like focus.
In the below clips she reminisces back to the release of her mixtape sailing soul(s) and the dark visual that accompanied her song 3:16 a.m.
