A Conversation with Rhymefest
I know, I know...posts have been quite sporadic lately. Blame it on the new gig. I'm all settled in now, so things can only get better.
Blue Collar has always been on top my anticipated albums list, but I'm now further convinced that Rhymefest is the next big thing out of Chicago. He's up there with Lupe Fiasco. My interview with 'Fest will be up on the new site later this week (if I'm not too lazy to transcribe, that is). Seeing that there are three other un-transcribed interviews sitting in the queue, it might not go up till the weekend. I put my money on Saturday, so mark your calendar kids!
Many artists have been trained to stay tight-lipped during interviews, not Rhymefest. You'll always walk away feeling enlightened and refreshed after listening to his enthralling spiel. He says things that most rappers would rather leave unsaid, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, because the only way to truly bond with your fans is by opening up and letting them into your world as an artist. You'll find out what I'm talking about come Saturday.
For those of you who're still unsure, I'll leave you with some Rhymefest joints to dowse your doubts.

"Dynomite" is still available for a free download on Itunes, I think.
