Definitely a great thing to see coverage on Detroit Hip-Hop, it’s my favorite shit out there (no offense Minneapolis), no one is bringing a sound to the Midwest (with the exception of MPLS) like Dietroit. Splash!-Mag caught up with Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, Big Tone & DJ Graffiti this year at the Splash! Festival. Big Tone talks about how it’s his first time over in Europe and what that experience is like. Phat Kat talks about his new album that he is finishing up, The Katacombs, and an album called Co-Still that he is working on with Elzhi (that’s what I like to hear).

Guilty grabs the mic and mentions his album with Madlib, says that the Random Axe project is just about done, and that he is also working on his second official release. He delves into the OJ Simpson album and talks a little bit about what you can expect to hear. I had heard something near catastrophic happened on the Random Axe project, and Guilty tells us that Black Milk did indeed lose a lot of the work associated with the album. Sean Price & Guilty Simpson had to re-record their vocals for the album.

There is so much more in this interview that is great, I mean it’s 20 minutes long. Take some notes from one of the best Hip-Hop cities in the country.

Shouts to 2DopeBoyz on the look.

Here is some more Splash!-Mag footage with Elzhi & Black Milk. If you remember, I posted the first part of this video a while back. In the second part, they talk about the history of Motown in pretty big detail. These guys are both very intelligent individuals who are very up-to-date on their musical knowledge. Black Milk also talks about all of the people that made tracks from his project Music From The Color Purple, not to mention how as a producer you can’t put any of your beats on the internet anymore. Black discusses that he is debating one whether or not to make a beat tape (thank you god), but he knows he has to beware if he does. Elzhi breaks down why Lord Finesse is one of his most influential emcees and how he fathered some people’s style.

Here is a nice video of Elzhi & Black Milk backstage at one of their shows (does anyone know where the fuck I can get that shirt that Hex is wearing?) where they talk about a variety of issues with Splash Mag. The first thing they discuss is the movie8 Mile, Black breaks down what it was like around that time (how big of a spotlight it was on the D), and Elzhi reminisces on getting a check for being an extra in the movie (fuck he’s way better than Em, they should make a movie about him). Elzhi breaks down what Em was going for when he re-created the battle scene in 8 Mile at the Hip-Hop shop. Make sure you don’t miss this one, tons of valuable knowledge about the D here.

This is an awesome video of Peanut Butter Wolf running through a phat stack of Stones Throw classics on vinyl with Splash Mag. The thing that is really great about it is that Wolf really gets into detail about these records, and he preaches some information that you otherwise might not have known. What records does he talk about might you ask? You can learn about My Vinyl Weighs A Ton, Donuts, Jaylib, Ode To The Ghetto and more.
