Southern Rapper & Producer Ande Bishop jumped onto Skype recently to talk with SiriusXM host Jon Leiberman about a range of issues for his “Rapping with Leiberman” online tv show.

The pair discussed his new Ocean$ EP which released earlier this week on Seven 13 Entertainment, before moving onto various political issues including his experiences with racial profiling and the alleged threat of an attack by ISIS in the USA. They then finished by addressing the politics of boxing and the NBA playoffs

Previous guests on the series have included Bishop Lamont, The Bronx’s La Bruja, Cincinnati’s Buggs tha Rocka, Baltimore Emcee M.I. from Constant Deviants & Jack Thriller

Ocean$ EP is available from iTunes now

This introductory EP is the latest in a string of releases since Ande switched focus at the start of 2015 to his own career having produced American Roulette stablemate Londn Blue’s “False Hope” EP in 2014. Tracks including “50 Centences”, “$77.43” & “Strictly for My Friendz” have been featured by a wide range of prominent international online publications, his video for “MoneyorFriendz” was aired by MTV & VH-1, and his single “OLDJAYZVIDEOS” received a public endorsement from Rick Ross

Hotly tipped as the next big thing from the new wave of urban artists coming through from The South, Ande is currently recording new tracks for future planned releases and conducting interviews for world media.

The latest episode of the online tv chat show “Rapping with Leiberman”, hosted by SiriusXM’s Jon Leiberman, has just been broadcast. The new series invites rappers, dj’s & producers to discuss the latest news issues of the day together with providing updates of their own careers

His latest guest is the Bronx’s actress, poet, community activist, musician and rapper Caridad de la Luz, aka La Bruja.

The term “artist” is often over used, but in this case it’s barely adequate. Probably one of the reasons the Bronx Music Heritage Centre presented her with the accolade recently of “Bronx Living Legend”

Born to Puerto Rican parents and brought up in the Bronx, she gained recognition for her early performances at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe before delivering a renowned performance of the self penned “WTC” on HBO’s Russell Simmon’s Def Poetry Jam in 2002 reflecting on events of 9/11.

Her acting career which has seen her perform in many tv and stage plays, including her own “Boogie Rican Blvd” took off with her performance as “Cuca” in Spike Lee’s “Bamboozled”. She then released her album “Brujalicious” in 2006 mixed by DJ Precision of the X-Executioners and featuring among others Joell Ortiz, Chingo Bling, Tony Touch, Jadakiss and The Jungle Brothers. She performed in the UK and Germany in support of the release including a performance in London on the same billing as Amerie.

Her dedication to helping and empowering youth and women saw her involved in various organizations including the setting up of Latinas4Life and providing poetry workshops in schools, youth centres and jails. During the interview which touches upon Indiana’s policy of providing clean needles to combat AIDS, she compares that to the work she did for a project in Hunts Point.

Similarly on the subject of the false Virginia University rape allegation made by Rolling Stone Magazine, her work with various different women’s assistance programmes allows her to relate the potential consequences for women with this kind of story, and also allows her to speak with authority on the subjects of the gender wage gap and Hillary Clinton’s chances of becoming president given recent issues raised regarding her campaign funding.

Other subjects tackled include legalization of marijuana, the death penalty for the Boston Bomber….and her thoughts on the new Star Wars film…..

Having performed a few bars live, La Bruja then speaks about her current projects including appearing in the musical “Betsy”, stage play Shadowlands and her plans to record a tribute album to the late Cuban singer-songwriter Celina Gonzalez
