Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 31) – Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner

Out Da Box TV – Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner I originally heard about “Thundercat” through “Erykah Badu” via Twitter. She was biggin’ up his new album “The Golden Age Of Apocalypse” so I figured I’d seek it out and give it a listen. I was definitely moved by the project. The music vibe was so smooth and fulfilling to listen to, that I immediately enjoyed it. When I started doing some research on “Thundercat” I found…

Out Da Box TV – M.E.D. (Medaphoar) During the week of CMJ, I found out in the last minute that Stones Throw Records was throwing an official CMJ Showcase in NY. I knew right away that I wanted to attend this event. I’ve been an avid fan and supporter of a variety of Artists signed to Stones Throw, so I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity. I immediately reached out to them in request…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 29) – ELZHI

Out Da Box TV – ELZHI This interview worked out pretty fast. I had a little difficulty at first trying to get a response from “Elzhi’s” management, but on the day of his SOBs show, they responded and told me that I could try for an interview after the show, but they couldn’t guarantee me an interview. As you’ve noticed throughout the year, I’ve always pushed for opportunity, so I took myself down to SOBs…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 28) – Willie Evans Jr.

Out Da Box TV – Willie Evans Jr. I first found out about “Willie Evans Jr.” through “Sucio Smash” of High Water Music. A couple years ago, High Water was beginning to introduce people to the music of Willie. I became more and more familiar with Willie Evans’ name but I did not yet know the depth of his music. Some weeks before Willie’s album “Introducin” was released, the homie “J Kim” had reached out…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 27) – GOAPELE

Out Da Box TV – GOAPELE Okay, so “Goapele” is one of those artists, I’ve always enjoyed. Something about her voice always resonated with me, and I was always fascinated by her background story. I never really saw her as the typical R&B artist, so when I found out she was coming to NY, I saw the opportunity to really work something out with her. There was a bit of back n forth trying to…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 26) – ERYKAH BADU

Out Da Box TV – ERYKAH BADU I’m so excited to share this interview with you. This was actually the most special, and probably the most significant interview piece to me. I must let you know that the interview itself took about an entire year to make happen. I reached out to “Erykah Badu’s” Label around the time that her album “New Amerkyah Part 2” came out, and I was doing everything I could possibly…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 25) – ROY AYERS

Out Da Box TV – ROY AYERS I originally found out that “Roy Ayers” was going to be performing at The Highline Ballroom about a month prior, and I was trying to figure out if I should reach out to interview him or female vocalist “Ledisi” who also had a show in NY on that same day. The more I thought about it, I figured it would actually be a really good look for me…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 24) – Kendrick Lamar

Out Da Box TV – Kendrick Lamar Working with “Kendrick Lamar” was something special. He was the first XXL Freshmen of 2011 that I was really into musically. I really liked the way he sounded as an emcee, and I couldn’t wait to get in touch with him when he came out to NY. I actually thought it would be harder to get to him, since he was already building such a great buzz. But…

Best of Out Da Box TV (Day 23) – J. Rawls

Out Da Box TV – J. Rawls I first found out about Producer “J. Rawls” a couple of years ago through “John Robinson” on a special podcast mixtape. I believe it was called “The Produce Section” and featured a collection of new and unreleased tracks from John Robinson. J. Rawls actually hosted the tape and had a few guest production tracks featured as well. It actually encouraged me to go a little further and seek…
