Slaughterhouse Talks About Contenders

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on Tuesday, August 11, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz & Royce Da 5’9″ stopped by Hard Knock TV to talk about their new album, and give some insight into who they think would be a 4 man group that could content. I love how Joell is just wylin’ out the whole time, and the rest of the guys give some serious answers. I am really surprised that no one mentions eMC (why does everyone sleep on eMC?). If you haven’t copped the Slaughterhouse album yet, there truly is no hope left for you.

Video: Talib Kweli Interview with Hard Knock TV

Posted in Video with tags , , , , , , , on Tuesday, January 13, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Hard Knock TV recently did an interview with one of the greatest emcees of all time Talib Kweli. Kweli addresses a few very key issues. There are actually two parts to the interview. In the first video Kweli addresses a question about the song that he did for Lauryn Hill called “Ms. Hill” (which I may add is incredibly beautiful), as well as the influence that J Dilla has had on Kweli and his group of peers/musicians. In the second video he talks about Hi-Tek as well as addressing the issues about people thinking that Reflection Eternal was a “soft” record.

This is a great interview because I love hearing what this man has to say. He is by far one of the most intelligent minds in Hip-Hop and has been for just about ten years now. Kweli will be around for a long time in the world of Hip-Hop and I really can’t wait to see what he is going to come out with next. We all know that he has reunited with Hi-Tek and there has also been talks of another Black Star record. I can’t honestly tell you how overjoyed I would be if I get to see either of these albums come out this year.
