They also discussed how the influence of not only Royce da 5’9″ but all 3 of his brothers played when he started our rapping and how that came about, his views on the depiction of hip hop today and why he feels “Hip Hop lost its respect, its pride, its honor. It’s become a fashion circus.“, the producers and artists he’d like to work with and gives an insight into his plans for future releases.
