EPISODE 87: SAHTYRE

I’ve known Sahtyre for almost a decade now. We’ve never been close, if anything there’s always been a strange tension between us, so learning about his background during our discussion was a bit of a mind fuck. His childhood was tumultuous to say the least and, while I’d heard murmurs about his upbringing, hearing the extent of some of his family’s dark moments from the source was very moving. During the convo we realize our past differences probably stem from the similarities in our character. This was a very open and cathartic conversation and, admittedly, we waited far too long to have it. Hear us talk about his drug addled early family life, starting kindergarten at age 3, and our mutual textbook need for validation.

EPISODE 86: ROME FORTUNE

This week we sat down with Rome Fortune. The Atlanta rapper was in LA to escape for a bit but, like any hard working artist, ended up in a few studios here (because sometimes it’s harder not to work). I’ll be honest: in my head with my own bias, I’d labeled him a “fashion rapper. I feared he would be snobby or overly egotistical. I was pleasantly proven wrong. Rome is jovial, warm, thoughtful, skilled and humble. He’s a true student of the game, an artist not afraid to experiment, and most importantly a rapper striving to make his music as open and personal as it can be. Here us talk about his jazz lineage, Home Depot hustles, and how the beard ended up green.

EPISODE 84: DANNY SETH

This week we sat down with London bred rapper Danny Seth. He’s been back and forth between LA and London working hard, collabing with the likes of G-Eazy and A$AP Ferg. His live show is filled with electric energy and the turn up is very real, but he’s working diligently on an album that will show he’s a very well rounded artist (proven in the heartfelt song he performed in studio). Hear us talk about a miserable mushroom trip, being detained for 9 hours in an airport, and having the foresight to remove his first viral song from the internet.

EPISODE 83: KAMASI WASHINGTON

This week we sat down with saxophonist, composer, and jazz aficionado Kamasi Washington. His latest record The Epic (released on Brainfeeder) is a 3 hour dreamscape journey through the mind of a master craftsman. The Los Angeles jazz scene seemingly revolves around a large group of friends who’ve been playing music together since childhood (when I asked Kamasi how long he’d known Thundercat his response was “Since he was in his mom’s belly”). Their names–Kamasi, Terrace, Thundercat, Ronald, Miles, Ambrose, etc–have recently been coming to the forefront because so many of them worked on Kendrick‘s To Pimp A Butterfly record but, make no mistake, they’ve all been honing their craft in a vibrant LA scene for years. Hear us talk about how he almost ended up as a physicist instead of a musician, how playing hip hop live changed his thoughts on how to play jazz, and how the saxophone chose him and not the other way around.
