"Yeah. It's all right. It sounds like you have like a healthy, like you're like, if I work now, it's for fun. Yeah. His reparation, a man. There's no pressure. It's just, you know, trying to create the perfect groove, you know? Yeah. It's something that's going to excite me, you know what I mean? On the rhyme and make me want to write like this has got to be that. I mean, this is something that a lot of your peers and people artists that we all love have fallen into this thing of like trying to chase ghosts, the ghosts of success. You know, I'm not going to name any names, but people just continue doing records. As they get older with whoever the youngest hottest person is just to kind of keep a foothold. And there's like a little bit of a I think that's a little bit of a desperation on there. I'm not going to knock anybody else's hustle, but you seem to have this very just this healthy thing with it. I guess I've made record. I've set records. I'm just going to make the shit that makes me excited at this point. Yeah. Exactly. I mean, people ask, who's on the album with the big sleepover? I'm like, shit, killer Mike. Yeah. Yeah. It's killer Mike's on like three songs. Yeah. And that's the main thing that you're working on right now when you go in the studio. It's done, it's done. Okay. It's coming very soon. Yeah, you could tell, sorry, I usually someone would tell me like, hey, he's dropping an album. You might want to ask him about that, but I apologize for not knowing that I'm gonna drop that biz out of the blue. This cut is done. Amazing. Yes, sir. I can't wait. I mean, honestly, it really is like anyone who loves music. I could just chart my fucking different points in my life and like the first time I took AT aliens out and put it on the fucking turntable and probably didn't even understand it at that point. Whatever 19, it blows my mind as well sometimes when I remember that you guys were like 15, 20, 25, like dropping those records by the time stankonia like it. Those records, everything was so fully realized you were kids, like essentially. Yeah, man. It's definitely a gift, man. Yeah. You know, we put here for a reason and like I said, like, I get that a lot of people say that the soundtrack to their lives. That's what you want to hear. You know what I mean? Yeah. I mean, a moment. Moment. Moment. Exactly. Well, thank you for talking to me today and thank you for all the moments and I can't wait for the big sleepover. Appreciate it, man. Thank you for everything. And if you got some stuff, man, you got to send me some stuff, man. We ain't getting done yet, you know? I would love to. I would love to. Should I just want you back? Yeah, go on your back. Go on your bag, man. I will. Just gotta be something else. You know what I mean? You got it. You definitely got it. You got it. It'll be the suit that you'll be like, nah, that'd be the shit that I pick. Okay. I'm gonna go. I'm gonna go, I have a job this afternoon now. Yes, sir. Appreciate it. Thank you so much..

"Tao is the most incredible side track story of all the time, but what I also wanted to ask you is, what are you listening to right now this got you kind of like excited? A little bit of everything. I got like 20,000 songs on here on my phone, so I just put it on shuffle. I could just read off what pops up. Mumford and sons, weekend, danger mouse, Billy ocean, Mickey Howard, good mom, Janet Jackson, Teddy Pendergrass, EPMD, the spinners, prints, Tupac, more prints, capilla, Kate Bush, Kate Bush, James Brown, the who, I keep going on. You know what I mean? Yeah. Which what Billy ocean song? I'm curious because Bailey has some people only know him from those like 80s like soundtrack kids, but he had some very soulful tracks like one of those nights you feel like getting down and like the early 80s. It's related. It was the last one. Yeah. Yep, yep. I remember when my grandson was born and my son, I turned him on to a lot of me. I was so proud. I went down to go meet him. And my son was playing this song over and over again. So he was just outside eating by the way. He was just kept playing it, so my kids palette. They turned me on to a whole bunch of shit too. You know what I'm a bunch of especially my daughter. She got an ear. Yeah. You mean, like all this stuff that you didn't know or knew stuff. Like new shit. Kind of new shit. Bobby mcferrin son, Tyler mcphee. Okay. Yeah, she's my daughter turned me on to that. It's another song from the other day. I love Mercedes. Yeah, we've done a song with them now. That's great. Till he called to do a song. You mentioned good email goody mob as well. When cell therapy came out, that must have come out in between your first and second album. That felt like this kind of next wave of dungeon family shit. Yep, they came out of a sudden playlist. I think southern plastic players ball into that song, especially being in New York where it felt so far and like it felt so far away. It was just fucking it was incredible. Yeah. Squat. Pray for the sheep. Yeah. Damn it. And then I just 'cause you mentioned Tupac and then we've been talking about organized noise so much. One of my favorite and I think it's more of a slept on organized noise song is BlackBerry molasses by mister. Oh, yeah, absolutely. And there's always this stories and probably like everybody you get into a song and you start going down the Internet wormhole, researching all the shit and apparently it was Tupac's favorite song. It was the weekend that he tragically was shot and died. That's all he was listening to in the car over and over again. Do you remember that song BlackBerry molasses? That's one of my favorites, man. That's one of my favorites. I'm fucking, you know, Bobby Valentino was in mister and he becomes organized noise, man. Geniuses. Yeah. Out of doubt. Oh, that word around, but it's not many of us. It's true. It's true. Another thing that there's like all these moments that obviously that you or your work or outcast is somewhere like almost my life at different records that you put out, but I DJ the 2004 Grammy party that you had, the big one in LA do you remember the huge one when you won album of the year? It was in this huge mansion. And, you know, set up in there. I remember being there. Yep. Yep. That's the night that they did the punk episode on us. Did they, really? I never saw that. What was that? It was like, that's when the maybach first came out. And so Mercedes gave us two way backs for the wars and all that I had a brown and Trey had a black when nobody had pet card. And Ashton Kutcher, they got us good. They set it up. They made it seem like one of our drivers. They had to make back crash through a store window. And Ashton Kutcher said he sold it. He had the helicopters in the sky and everything. And that's what was going on. He was like, what the fuck? And then we was about to fight the fighter. Drivers, it was crazy. It was like a wild episode of punk. It was so many curse words on that shit, man. Wait, on the night that you've just won album of the year than during the day on the way to the ground? After we left the party, they punked us. That's actually disrespectful. I know it's funny and baby, but I just like on one of the most, I don't know, celebrated nights. It's like yeah, they did it. They did, they did it. 'cause I was wondering where they got us, you know what I'm saying? 'cause it was so believable. Yeah. And then how long did it take you to forgive them for that or were you kind of just instantly like, okay, ha ha. No, we just kind of was like, oh, they got us. You know what I mean? Yeah. 'cause it was quick. Yeah. It was quick. They had some pretty good punk. They forgot about that show sometimes. But that was sort of really ahead of because now everything's documented and there's a video every body whatever making for themselves, but this was like it was kind of like sometimes it was funny. The thing that I really remember about that Grammy party is because the DJ booth was in this big outdoor area. I can't remember. It had like this big domo for it. I could see the moment because obviously the artist always come later. The party's packed and popping and we probably played the way you move 18 times at that point. But I saw the moment where you walked into the crowd for the first time because it was your night. It was like to see part of it. There was such an excitement because obviously everybody's waiting for the guests of honor to show. But I don't know. Do you remember anything about that night? It was a blur. It just seemed like a dream. I mean, obviously you had a lot of milestones. It seemed like a dream, but it was great because me and Drake both flew about 30 members of our family each out there. And we took over to this hotel out there. And so, you know, I had my grandma's aunts and my uncles and my grandma would see that she had never flown before they had to do like a Mr. T on the a team like it would tranquilize them. Get on the airplane, man and just for, you know, our mothers and everybody to be an audience. It was you can't. You can't beat that shit. Yeah. It was such an incredible year because it was bigger box up below. Hey, our way you move and crazy in love. So it was like, I think rich Harrison who produced crazy in love with you so many great bang. I remember him walking into the party, but you know, he's a producer. People are going to recognize like that. But there was like a vibe and everybody was like, hey Matt. But then and then you guys, when you came in, it was just like, and I'm sure we just two on the way you move, like right at that thing. I'm very embarrassed to say, but I got very drunk that night at the end of my set, because I think another DJ goldfinger, somebody finishes set. And I was just leaning over the balconies to the valet was bringing people its cars and I just kept singing. You like the way I move. You like the way anyway, I'm sorry to disrespect your song like that. No, that's all good. So I'm back in my old studio in New York. And when I moved in here, there was just a plaque on one of the doors that's a storage closet that says the boom boom room. I never really thought about it because it was just always called the boom boom room, and now that word has become like a part of I don't know like the cultural dictionary, but did you actually invent like did you bring that term into existence with that MTV cribs? That's trying to figure it out. I think I did. Did you get it from somebody else or did you just remember like, no, we're going to call this the boom boom room. Which is like we're going to call it the boom boom room. That's crazy. I just built another whole wing to my house just to do that. Pole and all the aquarium and it's just great. Fun fact. I still own that house, and I'm about to put that one. I've been removing that one. That was going to be on air-b-n-b shortly too. Okay, so with the pool and all that shit. Because that was your old house. That's actually where you live. That was in the studio. Yeah, it's crazy. Because you know like if you had trademarked that term, there's a nightclub in New York called the boom boom rum. Yeah,.

"To sing the words and then I wrote my verse and my boy dream or go dreamer wrote her parts and wrote the hook and it is incredible. And it's incredible. Is that something that you just, is it gonna come in the next year? Is it just you're gonna hold on whenever the universe whenever it's right? Yeah. Whenever I think they deserve it, I'm gonna give it to him. That is a big scoop you just gave us. Thank you very much. And I'm gonna tell you another thing I was thinking too, 'cause you know how these NFTs are exposed to be like works of art, right? So I'm thinking maybe this is that perfect art piece. Of course. That's something stunningly visual to go along with it as an NFT. Below the whole world up. That well, that well. Or you could just make only one copy like the Wu Tang album and pocket $30 million or something. It's not enough. Now the world got here because it's nice. Of course. Yeah, you can't. You can't do that, of course. So that collaboration right there was like the last piece of the puzzle. You know what I mean? My legacy goes like the only other person I wanted to work with would have been Bob Marley. Yeah. And I've worked with everybody that I wanted to work with now. You know what I mean? This one right here is special because I've been a fan of her since I was in middle school. Yeah. You know what I mean? She's one of the reasons why I started doing music. How did you discover? Were you just listening to the radio or? No, but did everybody got the weirdo uncle, right? So my mom's brother, her younger brother, Michael Russell. He turned me on the prints, he turned me on to genesis, Phil Collins, Guns N' Roses and he turned me on. He listened to everything. Yeah. Michael Jackson and all that and so he had this record plan. He had Kate Bush. And he would tell me the stories behind the songs and I was just intrigued. You know what I mean? Yeah. How this is deep and then to find out that she was producing and writing all this stuff, and then she worked with Peter Gabriel and I love Peter Gabriel. So I used to ride my bike to school listening and running up that hill. Crazy as a boy. And now as a grown ass man with a three kids in the grandson congratulations. Yeah, man. God.

"It kind of resonated with people more, but she's a dynamic singer and a great performer. Yeah. Perhaps no musical family in the 90s spawned more talent than the dungeon family. Named for the basement studio of organized noise producer RICO wade, the dungeon, as it was called. The first wave of quote unquote family included outcast goody mobs, sleepy Brown, joy, and of course, all the incredible records produced by organized noise, like TLC's waterfalls for starters. When you get into the second wave of extended dungeon family, well, that's where it even gets crazier. You have killer Mike. Janelle monae, future, a solo member of goody mob named clo, who forms an all Barkley and makes one of the biggest songs of all time. And that it would be over a decade until killer Mike in future found their peak stardom makes you realize just how ahead of the times it was. Sometimes an artist can be so special and ahead of the times. It does take a while for the world to catch up to them. Or for them to figure out how to dump it down for the world a little. I highly recommend the excellent documentary, the art of organized noise is a chronicle of the magic energy going on at that time. How one place can be the hub of so much talent. Young unknowns, the burst out of nowhere and change music forever. And nurture and inspire this scene around them. The infectiousness that all these artists were fostering, and then, of course, the inevitable sad demise that comes after success. The squabbling, the infighting the egos, the demons and the addiction. But it's tragic as that part is the musical legacy is staggering. Also, I don't think any record like actually drops harder than kryptonite. The intro, that was probably the last era when I was really like a gigging DJ. I'm talking about going to Vegas three times a month in this shit and this is before you could make money going to Vegas. This is like the pre EDM days. But you could play that acapella intro, abi up on it, I'm not gonna do your own clothes to you. But you could elongate that for like a minute and a half before the beat drop because the excitement you could build the crowd up, building until that dropped on the one and it was just like the craziest shit. I don't know. I closed my show with that to this day. Really? That's right, 'cause it's like, yeah. You just want to hit them in the mouth right before you leave. Close up. Yeah. Yeah. Man, I don't care if they've been on ten. The whole hour and 30 minutes when kryptonite come on, it's like the show just started over again. Yeah. Yeah. How did that one come about? Was that a beat that you had in the tank for a little while or was that really spontaneous? How was that song made? It was one of my childhood friends, macello Reddick is a part of a production team called the beat bullies. And they were like, you know, in house producer for purple rhythm. And I can't remember the GM brought me the beat one day. And I just was like, holy shit. Yeah. And it was like, man, you got it. You got to get on this record. You got to get on with your deposit cut. You got to get on this record. It was robbed. Legend. Killer Mike on here, sebum. It's like, you got to get on this record. And when they brought it to me, I went across the street again, went from the office to the street and murdered it. And that shit was the truth. Yeah. No, that show was incredible. Anytime. When I hear it, I could picture this one night club in Vegas called pure. And it's just like, I just remember like the walls would start sweating. Like it was just like it was so much fun. So you made about a 100,000 DJs life easy for three minutes, during that time. Or 5 minutes depending on how long you want to drag it out. My experience on a smaller level with labels and stuff is that you essentially sign something because you love it and you know that you have this platform to help them get their shit out there because you're already big and you believe in it. But what always happens is you're still the biggest star in the label and there's always going to be some kind of like I always tell my Friends I'm like, do you want to find the quickest way to fall out with your Friends? Start a label and sign them. And I know you've talked and you and Mike are great now and make great music is up. But there was, you know, I know that you've talked about your past and stuff like that. Would you do it again? Would you do the label again? Do you think it's just a thankless fucking task? No, it's gotta be the right artist. It's gotta be the right artist. You know what I mean? And I got to facility for it. You know what I mean? I have the home. I mean where they can record all day, but they just gotta be the right artist, the right artist and it's not a lot of artists development. You know what I mean? Yeah. I'm gonna sit around and kinda suck up game. It's gotta be somebody that's got that gotta want it. You know what I mean? They got a pretty kind of self contained. I mean, I have a stable of producers, so there's no shortage of music. But it just got to be talking about something and have something to offer. Yeah, what are you looking for? So I imagine Santorini has a lot of rooms here and there probably all the time, but there's other artists you're bringing in people at this point, whether it's a singer or a band, rapper, what are you looking for? To be talking about something, it just sounds like no one else to be original. It sounds like somebody else and somebody's gonna add something to the world. I like world standards. You know what I mean? It's gotta be left all the way left. Yeah. And it sounds like nut mess out there. I mean, because a lot of the stuff now is like, cut and paste. And you've always gone to different artists. You've always gone to like, obviously you did the great record with phantogram, little dragons. It's sort of eccentric artists and you've talked about growing up, like Kate Bush, you love Kate Bush, to keep it to the far side, whatever. Yeah. Have that actually has that, I know has that gotten any further doing a record with Kate Bush. I know you've been reaching it out putting it out into the ether for a minute. I have a muster hit with Kate Bush that I'm just holding. Are you serious? Holding it. It's a fucking monster. So you know, Ghana, you made music together. Yes, we have. Yes. Incredible. Yeah, you get here first, buddy. Yeah. It's the dream come true. And it's the people gonna fucking love it. It's fucking incredible. Oh my gosh. So how long did it take because you've been saying this for so long and you almost sound like, I'm just, you know, like you were trying to will it into the universe, which is any good energy. How long did it actually take for her to kind of come back and be like, hey, yeah, let's do something or whatever, whatever however Kate Bush talks. He's a very, very, very classy lady. And when we're out at 22, I got tickets, me and my wife, and we went to go see her show that she had to play the live shows. Yeah. And so from there, I get bite it backstage. We have some wine, we talk. And, you know, her kid is there. He's by the same as my kids, which is cool and she signs a album for me and give me a number. So after that, about a year or so pass and I told I was coming back, I just said, hey, when can we do a song? You know, just every now and then I talked to her on the phone. Hello, hello, so lovely. And so I came back and she was like, let's go to dinner. So we went and she took me to dinner to this cool little pub place where I had almond cognac. Yeah, yeah. We both throwing them back. It was the coolest experience so we had dinner. And then we like, okay, her son was going off to college and she was just like, okay, I'm gonna try to get to something when I get my studio set back up. And so my manager being a great, great manager, he is. He reached out to her manager a couple of years ago and was like, hey, we need to make this happen. And I just so happen to have the right song that is fucking phenomenal and senator. Wow. And it had the words on there and she had.

"That Abu Dhabi thing was sort of like what you said it was a little weird because you had to be in your group, like how you said there were cages at the Atlanta show. You had to stay at your table. And I was like, oh, fuck. Am I going to my DJing? Allowing essentially tonight, but then the minute I started, everybody just kind of jumped up and from where I was standing if you were just looking at people from their shoulders up, it just looked like a dance floor, actually, but people just had to stay in their zones. You know, 'cause we're a little further down the road. You don't have to wear the masks and stuff, which is kind of nice. I guess the other thing is because you love shows and connecting with people. And sometimes the further you go away from home, the more people appreciate you being there because they know that a, you don't have to be that you've come out of your way. You've taken some 12 hour flight. Just like, I'm sure there have been so many highlights, but do you remember a couple shows or some place where you didn't even know what to expect and you're like, this is just the most wonderful experience. This is why I do this. The Gold Coast Australia. Yeah. Crazy, like this beautiful man. I mean, it's fucked up over there now. But back when, you know, before the COVID. Yeah. Like, I was thinking about getting the house in Australia. That's it was so nice, man. Black saying. Yeah. Crazy stuff, man. The opera house just seeing, you know, different monuments and things like that. Yeah. It's just dope to go down there. The flight is a killer, but the color. I mean, one time I flew and I had to do something for MTV, I flew there, was on the ground. I was in there for that many hours and then on ground for like 5 hours got back on the flight to fly back to come do some more shit. Yeah. Australia is an incredible place. That's when I was asking that question in my mind that popped in because it is so far away. And there's such great crowds. Anyway, 'cause they like good music. They kind of like weird shit, like I think that they've got that station triple J that's sort of like alternative, but plays, but it's like the most popular thing. It would be like if clear channel was like an alternative station or something, you know what I mean? And then the people there, that's definitely some of my favorite places to play as well. When was the last time you were over there? It's been about 6 years, maybe 6, 7 years? Yeah. So because I've been doing this interview series for the fader and you've been on the cover quite a number of times. And I can fairly interesting points in your career and the last time was with killer Mike and it was really like when you were becoming an entrepreneur and it was really about I mean you might have always been an entrepreneur, but we're about purple rippon and building the label and it was it's hard to think about it like this. It's the same age, but I've looked up to you for so long you've obviously been so much farther ahead of what you've done literally sandwich on the same level. But it was exactly that same time 2005, you were 30 years old. And you say, and you're like, yeah, I go to the office around one. I stay till 9, and then we stay till two, making music. And that's even though I had like a label there was nowhere near as successful. I was doing the exact same thing at that time. And I was thinking, it really reminded me of it. It's something that you really only have the energy to do at that point in your life. Like when you look back at that now, the fact that you would go to the studio, go to the office and make marketing decisions for 8 hours. And then go to fucking studio and then have to access another part of your brain and make classics for the next 7 hours. Does the thought of that kind of be like, holy shit, I can't believe I used to do that. Yeah, absolutely. One good thing about it is the record company was right across the street from the studio. So I could walk across the street to the studio. And that's why I was staying in the loft because I'd be so tired and from working on compilations that happened to nail Monet and killer Mike and just working on my solo projects all at the same time. It was a lot. But if you wanted you got to go get it. Yeah. And how much will you sleep in during that time? I imagine like you like puff where you could do like two hours of sleep, you just driven by the energy? No. No, I got to get my sleep. You know, that's how I stayed. My face looked so young with no wrinkles. You got to get your ass. You know what I mean? Yeah. We gotta do that. You gotta get your rest. Yeah. Got two. I would do this crazy shit. I was running this little label. It wasn't super successful I had a couple of acts on there and we'd do the same shit till 6. Then I would literally just walk around the block once. Like literally around Broadway and canal scene and be like, okay, now I make music. And I think luckily, that was right when I met Amy Winehouse and like there were people around that were inspiring enough, but I was damn near about to have an anxiety attack every day during that point of my life because doing that label stuff, even if you're doing it for your Friends and because you believe in it is very stressful. How long did it take you before not the honeymoon wolf, but did you just have a good team around you and it was sort of fine? No, I had a good team. First it started out as, you know, a culminar record and Dre was like, I don't want to do the label thing anymore, so I changed it from cumin out of purple ribbon. And then so it was all on me, but I had a dope team, but it just takes a lot of commitment, 'cause at the time I'm still touring. I'm still recording. I'm still an artist myself. And, you know, that's why I could say from killer Mike and Janelle to sign those two and to see whether it now I didn't have to hold their hand like that. You know what I mean? Yeah. We all function that as a family. And everybody had a vision of what they wanted to do on how they wanted to do it. And so I was just, I was there for, you know, of course, creative, and spiritual, big brotherhood. You know? Yeah. To see them, you know, spread the wings and flying out. I did that. It's incredible actually when you think of the legacy of what you're doing there and Janelle is where she is now and killer Mike and run the jewels and I just found out the other day that future was like an old school dungeon family had. Like, I don't even know how the fuck I didn't know about that, but what was his deal? Meathead? Yeah, yeah, he was second generation, dungeon family. Okay. It was a couple of them guys out of that, man. And he's actually RICO's ways cousin. Yeah. You know what I mean? Yeah. No, he came, that's when bubba sparks, and he had like concrete, you had the group called to connect boulevard a lot of young guys that moved into the new dungeon as we were already out flourished. Yeah. And so, like I said, it's like, whoever wanted it went and got it. Yeah. What was the difference between Janelle back then? I mean, obviously, I remembered that she was on purple ribbon and when I started to do some research or when I knew we were about to talk. And I was like, oh yeah, fuck, of course, she did. She was always this really cool, eccentric. I feel like obviously a very special artist and what was the difference between someone like that and like tightrope? Are they finding their thing or is the world just catching up to them? How do you think it works? I think the world just kind of catching up to him because the music is always been like very theatrical hers has been always been cinematic. You know what I mean? It was a whole theme and a vision, the whole Android movement, what they were doing, they were thinking way futuristic, you know what I mean? Yeah. So when she I think one of her big records is an organized produce song called, I like that. Yeah. And it's kind of pulled back a little bit like most social R&B and.

"Took out some of the Christmas stuff. It had the bells. Yeah. We took the sleigh bails out and changed Christmas Day to all day and day was ended all day every day. Yes. And did a reprise with sleepy son to reprise and remixed it. And it was at the top of the charts for the long. So that's the remix of the chords in the remix. Some of my favorite chords of all time. And I used to play that version. I don't know if that's because maybe in New York, that's because I was DJing in clubs. I feel like that was the one that maybe even jumped off a little more in New York at that moment, but what the fuck was this story? How did that really come together? Sleeping Brown. That sleepy Brown playing on cars on there. Sleepy Brown was the man with the melody. Yeah. RICO was the 8 O 8 guy and rape was a drum program. And three together is a monster. You know what I mean? Yeah. So yeah, yeah, yeah, definitely. So it's all full circle, man. It's just like, you know, we just evolved as men and started as, you know, they started as mentor us and big brothers and that's how we all still family to this day, man. We all unit. And be able to do this and just, you know, get out here and take care of our families and make people happy. That's what it's all about. Brand positive person in this wicked ass world. Yeah. Actually, honestly, I'm not blowing smoke. My favorite concert, I tell people this all the time is of all time was OutKast, the night before the Super Bowl when the falcons were in the Super Bowl with Super Bowl 33 in Miami. And you guys played a tiny club show. It was the thing was so crazy. You already playing arenas. And if it wasn't Super Bowl, I don't think and I don't think if the falcons weren't down there, it was all like dirty birds in Miami. I'm sure you wouldn't have played it, but have any recollection of that show? Vaguely. Right. Things I remember, man, but we smoked so much, man. My boy. Yeah. Crazy. Take it from me. It was incredible. And I think everybody felt so lucky 'cause we were all new. It was probably like a 1200 person club. This club called the cameo. And I actually used to DJ with a cameo. You remember the cameo? Yeah, I play that several times. We played a few times. Yep. Yep. And I think like either when it went into, I mean, the whole show, but the most elated because you set the word bringing joy to people. Joy, is the only thing I can think of the way that when either Rosa Parks are skewered on the Barbie or something came in because Aquaman I had only been out for like two months. It was the biggest shit in the world. And I've never bounced. I don't think I've ever felt that much pure joy to show 'cause, you know, you make music, you go to shows. I don't need to pretend to be cool, but you know, I've been to a lot of shows my day. I don't even know that was like the spirit. I don't know what came over me for fucking two hours doing that shit. Yes, yes, yes, yes. And that's why I'm still performing and still rock shit to this day. That shit is the best feeling in the world, man. Any fucking drug. I really wasn't blowing smoke. I can still conjure the visceral joy of that show nearly 22 years ago. The energy when the beat from Rosa Parks drop. I was jumping up and down pogoing like a kid. Part of it was the fact that everyone in that crowd knew they were privileged to be seeing outcasts in this small club because they were already playing arenas at this point. Plus, it was Super Bowl weekend, the falcons were playing and it felt like half of Atlanta was in Miami. And then probably the main part was just seeing one of the greatest groups of all time perform at their peak. I don't actually know if I remember anything else specifically from 1999, but I remember that show, being on a full high when it was over walking out of the cameo into the night. The only other show I think I felt that at was Deangelo at Radio City on the voodoo tour. I remember taking the train home after the show, my girlfriend at the time was very sad and I asked her what was wrong and she said to me, well, in the year we've been together, I don't think I've ever seen you happy like you were at that show. And I had no reply because she was right. It's crazy what an incredible show can do to you. It's truly transformative. Your favorite songs coming out the mouth of the people who wrote them. With the collective energy of all those other people around you, having the same experience, it truly is the best. And for many musicians and performers feeling that energy back from their crowd is the lifeblood. I'm certainly not comparing one of my DJ gigs to an outcast show, but that feeling I get when I build the crowd up into this euphoric joy, it is the best. It's not an ego thing like, hey, look at me, look what I'm doing, you guys love me, but it's just seeing the joy on people's faces, the sweat. The collective swaying of a dance floor back and forth in rhapsody. Any time I think I might actually be done with DJing, I have one of those nights, and I'm like, I love this too much. There's no way I'm giving this up. Big boy, well, you can tell there's absolutely no way he will be giving this up anytime soon either. Are you back touring again now? Yes, I never stopped. I never stopped. I just meant the slowing down because of the pandemic and just all the shows stop it for a minute. You know what? During the pandemic, actually, I was doing corporate live stream. I have a whole season of whole setup at stankonia. Weird, 'cause it was like just cameraman with mask on and no crowd. It was like doing late night talk shows with crowds. I mean, it was cool. I mean, the paper was actually, you know what I mean? Yeah, I had to go from my house to stank on it and back, so it was on some cool stuff like that. Yeah. As soon as the shit opened up, boom, it's gone. And now it's like, do you remember the first show back? I can find a crowd. Was that feeling just incredible? Do you remember what the first one was? The first one I did in front of crowds was actually hearing Atlanta in Centennial park. It was called the big night out. Okay. I had the killer Mike and everybody with me. It was like the first show here. And no problem. There were no super spreader event at nothing. They had people. It was weird because I had people like sectioned off and like little cages and shit. Wow. It was weird, but yeah. But it was still, they still felt what we were doing. In the middle of downtown, they didn't talk about, I guess because it was positive. You know what I mean? Yeah, of course. And did you and just seeing the joy and all that show and everybody's face and having that connection, do you aware how much you missed it? Yes. Yes. Yes. It was weird because everybody had the mask on. So you couldn't see their facial expressions, but when they applause and scream, you can hear them, but they had to keep the mask on. You know what I mean? But the first one without the mask was, I did a show for first responders and Texas. Okay. A couple of years in Texas and then just like, you know, all first responders and things and it was without the masks and it just felt good to be back out there because the people just smiled and have a good time. Yeah. I DJ and Abu Dhabi, have you played much shows in the Middle East in the over that, Dubai and stuff like that? I went to Dubai, but I didn't have a show that I went just to go and then I had a show in Lebanon. After my trip, which was weird, 'cause I got Lebanon and then you see like Ritz carltons would look like a tank or a cannonball or something was shrapnel on the side of the field. Around these 5 star hotels and shit like that. And we played it was the coolest fucking venue. The stage came out of the ground on the beach. They got some of the best architecture over in the world, man, but too many bullets. Yeah. It was a festival or was it just solo show?.

"Just keeps it exciting for me as a writer. Something you said really resonated because right now, especially in the pandemic, basically, a lot of people had a record ready to drop in spring 2020 have sat on records for a year year and a half and it's like at first whether it was a record I was involved with or just a friend. You know, you want to think if it's great if it's classic, it'll stand the test of time. But there's also this saying, well, you know, the style of drums, people shit changes. Is this snare going to be hot in like a year and a half from now, whatever. But I think you're right. I think that if it's classic and it sits with you through the whole course of making a record, it's going to maybe transcend those little things that we have. Absolutely. No matter what comes out because we're not trying to follow those trends either. One of the most unexpected and insightful things about doing this podcast has been hearing how a lot of the people I've looked up to most of my life, how they make music. And being kind of gobsmacked by some of their processes. When DJ premier told us he would always make the singles last when producing an album for a gang star or jeru, whoever, I'm not gonna lie, my mind was kind of blown. I mean, I love that idea in theory. Basically premier is saying when he's making the albums, he makes sure he's making music for music's sake, not thinking about the pop charts or the radio, et cetera. IE, we make what feels right to us and at the very end we make the slightly more commercial joints. The crossover records. I can't imagine how you could do this. For me, the best records just come when they come. I've never had much control about when in the process they appear. I mean, sometimes you're just lucky to even get one single. But the history of music is littered with these amazing stories of artists handing in their albums and the label or a manager goes, damn, the album's awesome, but we just don't have that first single. That thing that can set off the whole project. Apparently, Springsteen was even told this when he handed in born in the USA, an album that we all know had singles out the wazoo. But the first single is really unique in the way it has to encapsulate the spirit of the whole project. It has to do this weird voodoo. Anyway, Springsteen went back to the crib and penned dancing in the dark. The beasties apparently were told something similar when they handed in ill communication and ad rock went back and wrote sabotage. I guess there's something great about writing that single with the perspective of the whole album already in hand. Big boy, as he talks about it, it's obvious that he's driven conceptually when making the album. He needs to be working on the whole album at the same time. And well, I mean, stankonia, AT aliens, equina. I mean, these album titles don't just conjure music. They conjure entire worlds. So it is no surprise, this man works, the way that he does. And now a quick break. This episode is brought to you by Disney's and kanto. From the studio that brought you Moana and frozen, Disney invites you to Casa mar, where the extraordinary mother of family lives in their magical house. Every member of the family is blessed with a magical gift. Except mirabel. But as fate would have it, mirabelle discovers her family and magical house are in danger, and it's up to her to save them. With new music from Lin-Manuel Miranda, see Disney's in kanto. Only in theaters, Thanksgiving. Hi, I'm Eric vitro. I'm a voice teacher and a vocal coach to some pretty successful artists, such as Ariana Grande, John Legend, Shawn Mendes, you get the picture. I'm always getting asked, what are their lives really like? Well, in my new podcast from pushkin. Backstage pass with Eric vitro, you'll get to find out. You'll hear Shawn Mendes tell this story about the first song he ever performed for his family. Pretty sure my mom was crying and everyone was crying and I was like, wow. John Legend analyzes aspects of his favorite falsetto singers. I think prince is obviously one of them. And his is a little funky. I just want you extra time. You'll hear Ariana Grande explain one reason she works so hard. I always had a very sensitive ear, and it's kind of made me into a perfectionist. To get the ultimate behind the scenes experience, listen to backstage pass with Eric vitro from pushkin, wherever you get your podcasts. So when you're making a record then, in that way, when you're coming back to it and working on different sounds at the same time, do you sort of know a little bit what the 14 songs are? What the track listing is do you have? Do you have to have the concept of the record first as you go into it? How does it work? Sometimes, sometimes you can know what is going to be about. You know what I mean? But when the lyrics are based on what's happening in the real world in real time chicken change, you know what I mean? Yeah. So there has to be some kind of thought put into it that's going to make the listener think, you know what I mean? So it has to be relevant for the time. It's going to have you bragged double show or whatever you want to do. You can just do that shit all day, but we're going to try to make something that's meaningful. Then that comes from experience and living and doing different things. And that's where the inspiration comes from. Yeah. I'm really excited for the sleepy racket because I DJ a lot. And every now and then I'll break out like one of the deeper cuts from your catalog or something and just start playing it and the one that the last year before, I guess before pandemic started, I was playing all the time, especially on tour with I can't wait. I can't wait was like this deep cut that was like it's one of like something happens when that song plays it, it changes the molecules in the room. It's wild. It's like, it's a little bit of like, oh, I remember this and it has this melancholy and this joy at the same time. Yes, yes, yes. Positive vibrations. That was from, I think barbershop two soundtrack or something. Really? Okay. Yeah, man. So I'm just in the groove, man. We performed that, you know, to this day. Yeah. You do. Yeah, absolutely. How can you talk a little bit about your relationship with how far you go back with sleepy with sleepy from original? I know he was on the first record was he on original dungeon family? Yes. Sleepy Brown is one third of organized noise. The production team. And he's actually, you know, he was on the very first outcast song. You know what I mean? Yeah. On the title track, sudden playlists Cadillac music, so clean. The way you move, we've been in like, he's like my big brother. You know what I mean? Yeah. When I started just touring and just stuff, he was like, hey man, I want to go out with you. So for the past 5 years or so, maybe even longer. He's been on the road with me and being on the road and doing these classics. And then, you know, we have so many records together. It came with time. It was like, hey, man, let's do some new shit. Man, you let's do a whole album. And when Austin, Texas, and his beat came on as the beat can't sleep. It was like one of the first songs we dropped from this project. And I never forget to be came on and it was like I didn't get to sleep didn't didn't get to sleep crazy. Yeah. And my sister, she was on the bus with us and she was like, oh my God, what's that? I had had this beat mind you for about for years. Right. It was like big sleepovers. Big sleepover. And it's like, bam. And from there, we just started recording. Right. Amazing. Organically created level genetically modified. Excellent. Wait, that just shit. There's so many things and every time you say something like, I want to ask about that when I ask about that. The one thing that I did remember, though, because you did say players ball. Players ball has this crazy story. I know you probably told it a thousand times, so I won't make you retell it if you don't want, but it started as a Christmas record. Then by the time it became the first outcast single, I think you.

"A criminal records. Yeah. Yeah. Gary must have been some crazy shit behind the couch or things that were left behind. I mean, I used to work in this studio in 54th street and someone would just be always like, oh yeah, that's where pop always used to have sex on that couch. Like, those stories like that, they have to have this folklore. I mean, Bobby Brown was, I mean, like we know legend and quite wild. Yeah. Well, actually there is a spot in the studio. I like to call it the meatloaf. There's loft upstairs with a bedroom, bathroom, just like a studio apartment. And so I started living at studio. You know what I mean? Because my house, the one I was on MTV crew was like, I went from the studio, so I would just stay at the studio. So it was made a very convenient. Yeah. So it's probably a lot wild shit took place up there. Yeah. Yeah. And then it stayed sania and then is at the studio that you still have did you read name it or is that it still stuck on it? We still sang Konya and that's why everything gets done. Yeah, yep. Everybody records there. Amazing. Anybody to who's who come in town? Yeah. Yeah, just did a little remodeling it's funny because you say southern playlist they can. I remember first hearing that song and the wa guitars and the thing, it spoke to me on such a level that I didn't know that I liked hip hop. I was just getting into hip hop, I was mostly in the east coast stuff, tribe, a far side, things like that. And for a lot of people use was the introduction to the south. And Dr. Dre was incredible, obviously, and was doing a very live thing on the West Coast, but it was more polished or something. I don't know what it was, but when I heard southern play holistic, I just remember like it just, it's smacked me in the fucking head. I don't know what it was. It spoke to me on so many levels 'cause I love the meters, and I love funk and things like that. But the way you guys put it all together, I know whenever you talk to somebody who's at the beginning of doing something that's going to change the world. No one ever feels like they're there changing the world at the moment. You're just all excited, but it must have felt like we're doing something no one else is doing. Yeah. I mean, we were just down in a dungeon man and you said it was all funk backs, you know, we were real heavy into all that people all stars problem funkadelic boots and Collins, like the meters, James Brown, so the lavish instrumentation was definitely key because when you venture off into those things, you're not stuck in one pattern. You know what I mean? Yeah. And then it just creates more feeling in the music. And I think that's one thing about our music is always got feeling it's not just in one stale pace. I mean, even from the lyrics, the cadence is never the same. You know what I mean? Yeah. You just have to evolve with it. And when you use horns and guitars and live rooms and it just gives you the freedom to express yourself more. Yeah. I mean, obviously, by the second album, I have to say something so embarrassing. I mean, I've listened to that album so much, but I literally three days ago, I was in the studio working with lizzo, and I said, I was talking about you when we were talking about elevators, and I said, AT aliens. And I said, what did you say? She goes, AT alliance. It's the name of the album. I've been saying at liens for 25 years. I will never be afraid to embarras myself for amusing anecdote. But by that record and elevated she obviously started to produce stuff it on the first record, did you like to be involved with the creative process? While they're laying down the guitars and stuff, do they have were they bringing you like, hey, we did this track last night, do you want to jump on it? How did that process work? We all be in the room. You know what I mean? Right. A certain lick or something, but like, oh, that's it. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. It just kind of motivated us. You know, like, so what we did after the first record plays ball, of course, went number one and was 6 weeks on the top of the rap charts. And so, you know, they came to us, Christmas Day. It was like, do you want to do a publishing deal? You know, like, oh, shit. Okay, cool. So young teenagers. We can give you a $100,000 apiece. So like, I was like, a $1 million, I was like, oh, shit. Yeah. So first thing we did was we bought cars because we didn't have a car. Yeah. And then we invested in drum machines and music equipment. And we had apartments and we were set up our little pre-production studio, and then we started taking over the music. So by trying to second album came we were creating the soundscapes to the lyrics, you know what I'm saying? Sounds like ATL is an elevator's, you know, being some of the first stuff that we play for organized knows. And I was like, oh, I was producing now. You know what I mean? Right. It has got better and better from there. Did you feel like on the second album, you had enough ideas to do it by yourself? Did you realize that you were just becoming producers and you needed to leave the nest somewhat? Or were you just kind of making your own shit that was like, okay, we like what they have over there, but we also really like our stuff here. Yeah. Yeah, absolutely absolutely. It was just like, I mean, when you're creative, you gotta be all you can be, you know? Yeah. Since we spend so much time together and then we wanna road and we have these ideas. So we just started laying stuff down. You know what I mean? Just doing scratch versions of stuff. You know what I mean? Just from right of hooks and just having fun with the music. Yeah. And paying really good at it. And then when did you actually get the studio, when did you guys get your own and build your own studio stankonia? Was it around the time of making stankonia? No, it was after we've been there now. Since 99, I'm not sure about this, but to call this thing only it was probably after stack on it. Yeah. It's funny 'cause because wealth in the creative output is not only been huge, but so giant steps and evolution each time. I think of you more like The Beatles, like The Beatles famously, we're excited not to tour the minute they could stop touring because they're like actually being in the studios where we like being the most and they were competing when this arms race with The Beach Boys and Hendrix and trying to outdo each other with the creativity. But I was surprised to read in an interview recently that you just did where you said actually your favorite part is going out and playing live as opposed to the studio process. Yes, it's to see your creation come to life in a sea of people singing words that just started in your mind is incredible feel. Yeah. And just the energy, you know what I mean? Just to see to bring that much Georgia people is what it's all about. I mean, I love the studio. I love the creative process, but the creative process to me is like making an album is like taking the SAT. You know what I mean? Yeah. Like a year or two straight. Yeah. Because it's like, okay, you rethinking and overthinking and you're going back. And the feeling with things and, you know, it's never done until they give it to me. You know what I mean up until the last minute. So we're just kind of tinkering with it the whole time. Just like the album now, the big sleepover with me and sleepy Brown who's been done. That was been done for like two years. And so we just been kind of just leaking songs out just getting the appetite for what's going on. I think my whole outlook on it is if you can work on something for a year or a year and a half two years and it still sounds fresh to you, then it's going to have the most playback power when it gets to consumer. You know what I'm saying? Yes. Definitely. I find that I mean, you've told this story many times, but about sitting on the beat for the way you move for 5 years. Was it three years? Because what was the story you wanted to wait until you had the right thing or did the right time to release it? Sometimes it just happens. You know what I mean? I have a playlist full of music that is incorporate on my phone and I put a lot of my favorite songs from all genres for any artist. And you might have these demo beats pop up ever so often. You know what I mean? And it might be stuff that's been you might hear it every day. You might hear it every couple of months. But days it'll speak to you. And it's like fucking with that today. I'm gonna go to the studio, and I'm gonna put something on it. You know what I mean? Yeah. Or when it's time to, I call it beat harvest. You know? Yeah. You just did a whole bunch of stuff you like. And try to piece it together sort of kind of streamline and then you just start attacking it. Piece by piece. I don't work on just one song at a time. I work on the whole album at the same time. You know what I mean? Like, I might put guitar on this record for the hook on this other record horns on this, come back, change The Beatles made away on this TV we're playing for synthesizers on this other record, then I might have a verse. You know what I mean?.

"Her with my glisten black eat their big Boi's neighborhood. Click of the day. Give it up for me. What up, honey, I don't know if you've ever seen an alligator of you've been golfing in Florida. But if you go golfing in Florida, I'm pretty sure you're going to find a lot of alligators. There was this myth. He went golfing with his brother big. They hit the ball, and I guess like it lands by like the water in the lake thing, so he goes to get his golf ball. But it turns out that this golf ball didn't land on the grass or the water. Anything. It landed on the alligator's tail. But what does this guy do? Big? He doesn't say, like, Oh, these golf balls like Get them anywhere. He's like, No, I'm gonna be a dare tell Also, he turns to his brother. He's like, Get your phone out. So the brothers recording all of this? He was big brothers far away. So if anything happens, he's not gonna be, But I help but he's filming this that somebody gotta carry the casket. Somebody gotta carry the casket. Go ahead, eh? So he the other guy, the brother? He walks close to the alligator, and you're like, No, He's not gonna do it. He's not. Then he goes and he gets the ball and big as he gets the ball. You're like, Okay, Maybe this alligator's not as dangerous as they thought. But the second that the man touches the ball that alligator goes, which it goes into the water. A man that's enough for me. That's enough for me. You know what I'm saying? Like those of those stories that we use, as you know, for the idiot song that get your dumb ass kind of thing, you know. To make the media. Yes, but can you imagine? Yeah, if it happened, and the alligator didn't go towards the water. He did what he did his little reach around like for a ball. Yeah. You know what I'm saying? It's not like you go golfing. I don't go off now. If I said alligator got to be on a miniature golf course I haven't said that, you know, But, you know, I'm pretty familiar with buying, you know. Golf balls and not familiar, but I think they come in more than a pack of one. You don't go to the golf course with one ball. You know what I'm saying? So, I mean, he got his video. We're talking about it. He accomplished what he wanted to accomplish, you know, And then maybe the next time we'll say rest in peace. Just just be a little careful. You can't get away with every stupid ass act especially stupid ass act that you think about when you tell your brother recorded. You know you're doing something stupid. You know what I'm saying? So it's a golf all not at all. But he got his ball. Hopefully won the game too. You know, hoping you want game. Hopefully, you know, I would want him to risk his life and lose the game as well. So that stick around your radios, man, We gotta go hit these golf balls. Real quick. Big Boi's neighborhood.

Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast. Some Super Bowls are thrilling and summer like last night when the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams and the lowest scoring Super Bowl game in history. Of course, the game is only part of the spectacle, where the halftime show and the commercials anymore. Exciting. We have a tweet review here from one Rachel Martin of NPR news who writes, you wrote Rachel well that was horrible. Don't think you didn't love it very much NPR. Tv critic Eric Duggan's has his judgment the most unexpected moment in the Super Bowl. Halftime show. Didn't come from headliner. Maroon five or guest Travis Scott, it came courtesy of characters from the cartoon SpongeBob squarepants who introduced Scott's part of the performance. Musical genius who needs no introduction. The cartoon clip was a shoutout to sweet victory. Assam spongebob. Squarepants once played on an episode that parody the Super Bowl was a hip surprise. And a halftime show that also included appearances from Outkast member big BOI and a gospel choir. Maroon five frontman, Adam LeVine, stripped off, coats and shirt until he was bare-chested showing off his tattoos while singing one of the group's biggest hits moves like Jagger. Gives me. Show. It was professional mildly. Exciting the kind of ineffective Super Bowl halftime show that the NFL might have been hoping for after its controversies over players kneeling to protest police brutality. But it was also kind of boring like most of the Super Bowl commercials press to avoid social media backlash. Many of the ads in Sunday's game were not edgy groundbreaking or even all that funny. Consider one but lights commercials which featured medieval characters from last year's but light Super Bowl ads preparing to watch a joust a beautiful day for a date. Date things out lucky. Loincloth cold Bud Light comfy thrown I don't have the plague anymore when they're but night is killed by a character from game of thrones called the mountain then a dragon sets fire to the jousting arena. And the whole thing turns into a game of thrones commercial. I'm not quite sure how scenes of carnage and fire cells cans of Bud Light. Maybe it makes you thirsting Harrison Ford fared better in an ad that showed fictional failed products, featuring Amazon, Alexa, including dot collar. Ordering dog the Barco you'll want. I'm not paying for England dog food ordering gravy yet. There is nothing funnier than watching Indiana Jones chases small dog around his house, Pepsi earn some multigenerational cool points by having chance the rapper remix. The backstreet boys hit I want it that way. And the Washington Post scored with a serious ad ended reinforcing the value of journalists and journalism as images of reporters like slain columnists, Jamal kashogi appeared on screen. Tom Hanks provided a reassuring narration when our nation is threatened. There's someone to gather the facts. To bring you the story. No matter the cost knowing keeps us free. Now, I might be a bit biased. But seeing some of the most expensive real estate in television used to remind America that journalism is a key to democracy seemed like the best use of a Super Bowl ad that I've seen in quite a while Americans.
