Plus I couldn’t recall him coming to NY too…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 19) – John Robinson (Lil’ Sci)

Out Da Box TV – John Robinson (Lil’ Sci) John Robinson is another one of those local NY artists I’ve always wanted to work with.

Out Da Box TV – Random Axe So this interview kind of came out of the blue. I had told the group’s manager, quite a while ago that I wanted to interview them when they came to NY.

Out Da Box TV – J*DaVeY J*DaVeY is a group that actually began to grow on me, from the first time I was introduced to them by my partner “ALevel”.

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 15) – Pharoahe Monch

Out Da Box TV – Pharoahe Monch Let me begin, by saying that sometimes it takes an entire year, to finally work out an interview with an artist. Other times it doesn’t take as long, and you’re just fortunate, as you’ve seen with the case of Jay Electronica. But in this case, It took almost a year to finally work something out with “Pharaoahe”, however I must also say, that it worked out for the…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 14) – Eric Roberson

Out Da Box TV – Eric Roberson To me this episode was a pivotal move. This was around the time that everyone was going out to SXSW (South By South West) for the Annual Music and Film Festival, so I was scrambling to get interviews for Out Da Box TV to keep up with our weekly episode releases.
