Kendrick Lamar Speaking With DJ Whoo Kid On His Music, His Moves, His Take On Hip-Hop Today & More (Video)
On the mic, Kendrick’s spit game is unmatched…even on the radio. Promo stop to be certain, but take in the insights the young lion drops (along with news of what’s to come in his music/career)…
Kendrick Lamar stopped by The Whoolywood Shuffle promoting his latest single “i”. He speaks on traveling to St. Louis to gain Ron Isley’s permission for use of his “That Lady” sample. K. Dot also confirms George Clinton collaborations are underway.
There are also motivational gems contained within the interview. One being that Kendrick emphasizes the basis of challenging yourself. He said “Challenge yourself, and don’t take instances for granted.” “Whether it’s a 16, a hook, or 4 bars challenge yourself. And this is why Hip-Hop is at a point where creativity is stagnant, because artists aren’t challenging themselves.”
Lupe Fiasco Speaks On Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, His New Album And More (Video)
Can DJ Whoo Kid get Lupe Fiasco to let down his guard… for some real talk, his real opinions; even if they are controversial? Do you really think Lupe has been waiting for a Whoo Kid interview to do that? Of course not! Hell, you’ve seen what we posted on the Obama inauguration ‘Fiasco’ right here. With an upcoming album – “Tetsuo & Youth” – on the horizon, you know this interview ought to be interesting, if not fully loaded.
Attention emcees, two things: (1) DJ Premier does NOT influence the BET Cypher selections AND (2) he WILL be scratching while you are freestyling if you get in the Cypher (that’s Hip-Hop; get your skill up)!
The legendary producer and Whoo Kid talk about how real it can get for a DJ out here, conflict and music making in Hip-Hop (including confessing that the original version of KRS-ONE’s “Outta Here” was way more heavy with PERSONAL name-naming disses), his coming up in the game (starting at age 19 in the late 80s), his experiences with Tupac EARLY in his career (literally tearing South Carolina up), all kinds of momentoes he has, and so much more. Great interview!
“I’m an emcee. I don’t rap, but I know how to control a crowd…” – DJ Premier
50 Cent takes Precious Paris, Tony Yayo, Kidd Kidd and DJ Whoo Kid to the X Games… in Barcelona, Spain… and to meet Tony Hawk… and tear down a stage or two. This video could easily be re-titled ‘G-Unit Living the Hip-Hop High Life To The Fullest’ starring 50 Cent and friends. Cap the excursion with 50 Cent hopping over to Fiesta Club Louis in Brussels to get it in with and for the fans, and you’ve got yourself a complete experience AND a video short worth watching!
Iron Mike Tyson talks with DJ Whoo Kid – joking, happy, healthy, still taking care of his birds… Mike mentioned his Broadway show (“Undisputed Truth”) with Spike Lee… mentioned it… during the interview. But mostly, he talked… about life (and boxing, of course… once Whoo Kid brought up 50 Cent getting into the fight game). Real talk for real. Good clip.
