Styles P Speaks On The Diamond Life Project, Rock The Bells, The Passing Of Chris Lighty, & More (Video)

In his interview with The Breakfast Club (Power 105 Morning Show), Styles P (the self-proclaimed ‘Elder Statesman of Hip-Hop’) lets us know about “The Diamond Life Project” (available FREE here), that ‘the bars are back’ (e.g. lyricism has returned to Hip-Hop), and that (for the most part) he’s a good guy selling juice at his juice bar and doing his music. On the music, Styles P said he is “working on” a solo joint and LOX is working on a group joint, too… We’ll see. Styles kept it light for the sit-down, but he had to touch on the silliness (read: shamefulness) of the Mobb Deep beef and on the tragedy of the loss of Chris Lighty. Respect. Of course, there’s more to the video than that. Watch the interview for the rest. Good stuff.

The RZA Speaks On The Classic “Enter The Wu-Tang” 36 Chambers (Video)

“Catching up with RZA behind the scenes at Rock the Bells, it was clear that he sees everything through the prism of a movie screen, including Wu-Tang’s 1993 classic album ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’. When asked how it all came together, he compared the platinum album’s genre-busting style and MC collaboration to John Woo’s 1989 cult classic Hong Kong action film The Killer, just don’t ask us what it means. RZA’s lyrical genius is as prolific and out-there as ever, so grab yourself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and take a trip to Shaolin…RZA does not disappoint.” – Rock The Bells/Reebok Classics
