This is a good one. Last night, 9th Wonder and Buckshot of Duck Down fame were at the SoHo Apple store in NYC. Well, the conversation was no your typical at the Apple store. It was pretty free flowing. But first of all, 9th Wonder has released two albums with Buckshot and Murs, both of which were released yesterday. They are available on iTunes.
But, here’s the interesting part. One of the funny things that happened. Buckshot (see the name?) is known for his hardcore raps with Black Moon and Duck Down (see the name?). Anyway, Buckshot has evolved a lot. He’s got a song called “Stop Rapping” on their album The Solution. On the song, it seems to be a clear calling for wack MC’s to cut it out. But he revealed its really a calling for people do do what’s their best asset. He went on to say that he studies life coaches a lot and considers MC to stand for “motivational coach.” Buck showed a lot of personality up there, including a cool impersonation of Barack Obama.
Also, 9th Wonder – I believe – said “Thank God for Kendrick Lamar.” From what I understand, he made it clear that he felt Kendrick will create a ripple affect in the younger rap generation. He’ll create better emcees, because good kid, m.A.A.d city is so dope.
I jacked this story from allhiphop.com but Buckshot has always been a personal favorite of mine. Go support the album if you are a true hip hop lover!!!!!
