My Thoughts on the The Zimmerman Verdict


After the verdict this weekend I have heard many insensitive comments including the same ol’ same ol’ “get over it”. We don’t need to get over it we need to deal with it, deal with these racial issues in real substantive way, real discussions that means there will be some cussing some anger but it is well past time that people discuss the racial history of this country in diverse groups and in a brutally honest way. The unequal access to education and the unequally in the justice system that brought the feelings of this weekend to the surface. Because the reality is these feelings have been under the surface since the last highly publicized unjust verdict which was almost 21 years ago. The Rodney King verdict didn’t set the stage for this but was just a conformation of what went on before the height in the civil rights movement and during and sadly after. To sum my thoughts up on this whole thing is we keep hearing about how America is supposed to be a melting pot that has not fully come to fruition until we deal with each other in real way and realize that we as one nation can not make it without one another………………..

THE UNDERGROUND EXPERIENCE FEATURE 7/20/011


This month’s feature is with someone who is ready to prove when it comes to Hip-Hop he is definitely first in flight Rain……

rain vicks THE UNDERGROUND EXPERIENCE FEATURE 7/20/011

Mistajay: What area are you reppin? RAIN: Fayetteville, North Carolina

Mistajay: What are your influences of your music? And what inspires you? RAIN: My musical influences ranges from 2Pac all the way to Willie Hutch. I have a very wide range of musical influences. I am inspired by my drive to reach greatness. I don’t feel like I have reached my peak musically. Knowing that somewhere deep down I have classic material inside that can be released with practice and dedication keeps me inspired.

Mistajay: How do you describe your style? RAIN: Vivid. Very real and cinematic.

Mistajay: What is your best song recorded to date and why? RAIN: I have no clue. Its changes all the time. I really love “Lady in a Red Dress” from American Dreamin 2.

Mistajay: If you could share the stage with any 3 artists or bands who are still around and touring, who would they be and why? RAIN: Stevie Wonder, The Roots and Lauryn Hill.

Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2011? How do you see yourself fitting into that? What do you think the future of Fayetteville and NC Hip Hop is? RAIN: Hip Hop is so strange. It evolved so fast and extremely frequently. I’m not sure where it is going, I just hope I am around to enjoy the ride. Hopefully I will become a main figure in the culture. If I am there, Fayetteville will be there also.

Mistajay: Your Bio states that you are to release your first retail project through First in Flight/Hoopla/Universal there where reported rumours that you have been flying back and forth to LA and possibly in talks with Aftermath is there anything you would want to break here or clear up? RAIN: Time will tell. We will soon see how everything plays out.

Mistajay: 9th wonder recently had a write up about Hip Hop in NC and one of the main points where that the competition was outside the state and not within basically saying that we need to support are own as artists and develop your brand what are your thoughts about this as well as your own advice for indy artists and fans alike? RAIN: I don’t want to comment on the 9th Wonder statement because I didn’t see that for myself but I do feel like there is competition everywhere including inside of NC. Never sleep on anyone. You never know what they are cooking up. My advice is to stay focus, be original and give it all you have.

Mistajay: What are your future plans? RAIN: Releasing more music and introducing new talent.

Mistajay: Any last thoughts? RAIN: Thank you! First In Flight for life. Live free or die!

Mistajay: Where can fans follow you and get your music? RAIN:twitter.com/rain910 www.rain910.com

The Underground Experience Feature 2/17/011


This month feature is an emcee versatile artist considered by some to be a favorite in the indy hip-hop community and one of the premier artist to watch let’s pick the brain of Mr.Backtwist Chaundon.

wall paper3 large The Underground Experience Feature 2/17/011

Mistajay: What is the story and conception behind your emcee name?

Chaundon: The name Chaundon is basically a play of the Champagne. Women love champagne and the love me so it makes sense lol.

Mistajay: What area are you reppin?

Chaundon: I rep Hunts Point Avenue. Bronx, NY

Mistajay: What are your influences of your music? And what inspires you?

Chaundon: My influences began with emcees out of Hunts Point. Mike Smooth (R.I.P) & Fred Black. They’re style, music and influence in the hood was incredible and it left an impression on me to make music. Shortly after, my influences ranged from Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Kool G Rap to Big L.

Mistajay: Your history here in NC starts with NCCU as well as some others in your collective you feel that that environment was fertile ground for your growth as a emcee?

Chaundon: Yes I do. My career began there.

Mistajay: Being  a member of HOJ and them having a critical buzz at one time how do you feel that has affected or helped your career or has it?

Chaundon: It has helped to propel my name to where it is now. The buzz gave me the opportunity to make a living solely off of music. You gotta love it.

Mistajay: You have recorded several projects the most recent being Baby making music and No Excuses. What is your best song recorded to date and why?

Chaundon: I don’t have a “best song”. I leave that up to the fans of my music to decide.

Mistajay: If you could share the stage with any 3 artists or bands who are still around and touring, who would they be and why?

Chaundon: The 1st artist I’d choose would be Black Thought because he’s dope and his stage presence is commanding. The 2nd artist would be Stevie Wonder because his music is incredible. It would be an honor and a learning experience to share the stage with such a genius. The 3rd artist would be DJ Kid Capri. Do I need a reason?? He rocks a party like none other! To have Kid Capri on the ones and twos will make the cipher complete.

Mistajay: As a indy artist what do you think some of the the benefits are, if any and some of the difficulties of being Independent?

Chaundon: The difficulty is the not having that machine behind you to get the music in places you can’t do with out the influence on the major. The benefits are building relationships to maintain your career. Also, having total control on your image and the sound of the music.

Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2011?

Chaundon: I have no clue. We’ll see how it turns out when it happens. Its hard to predict what people gravitate to.

Mistajay: How do you see yourself fitting into that?

Chaundon: I’m not worried about fitting into anything.

Mistajay: Some artists have put a age limit on how long they see themselves performing and recording do you have a limit?

Chaundon: I don’t have a limit. I’ll leave when I feel its time.

Mistajay: What are your future plans?

Chaundon: I’m working on a cook book and a cooking show. It should be completed later this year.

Mistajay: Any last thoughts?
Chaundon: Buy my music! And join www.chaundon.com

Mistajay: Where can fans follow you and get your music?

Chaundon: They can follow me on twitter @chaundon
They can purchase all my music from http://chaundon.bandcamp.com

Ronnie Run:I would say Drake, Ice Cube,and Ludacris. These 3 people can sell out a concert real quick!

Mistajay:Where do you see the hip hop going in 2011? How do you see yourself fitting into that?

Ronnie Run:I see hip hop going in a different direction that everybody is waiting to see it go and that’s a good thing as long as everybody supports each other. I see myself fitting in very well because everybody is stuck on what’s hot and not looking at talent and skills. But the industry has got alot people heads twisted right now. All I can say is stay focused and be smooth and everything will be alright.

Mistajay:What are your future plans?

Ronnie Run:My future plans is to work on another album and drop another single for the radio. Also drop my first mixtape called”Local Hood Star”.
