One thing you can guarantee about Detroit rapper ZotheJerk, he makes for one helluva interviewee !

In this latest filmed interview with westcoast online Streets Connect TV, he talks in great detail about various aspects of his past, present and future.

Of particular interest, he explains how he came to appear in the film “8 Mile” and how this led to a subsequent working relationship with the late Big Proof of D12. In this section, he also provides his own perspective of Proof’s humerous nature including anecdotes from direct experience, and the devastating effect his passing had on the wider community.

He also addresses a variety of topics including the ability to balance family life with career, offers advice on how to break the “dead beat job cycle”, and of course gives an insight into the political and social issues tackled in his new album “Black Beach” which released on Friday May 26th produced entirely by Frost Gamble.

The interview makes for fascinating viewing and you can watch it all on Youtube

The review reflects Sunez’ own passion for the artform, setting the background scene in an introduction which ends

Now across borders and over waters there are the UK Triple Darkness crew of countercultural lyricists that ignite with insight. Their newest member, Iron Braydz strips it all down, keeps the collected fam enlisted as soldiers in verse trenches and gives an EP of concentrated explosions.

The review works through the 10 tracks produced by Iron Braydz, Ringz of Saturn, Agor & Daniel Taylor and featuring Sean Price, Prince Po, Triple Darkness, Kyza, Skriblah, Phat Kat & DJ Shortee Blitz, and summarizes :

As part of one of the great crews of importance, sharing lyrics of relevance and fiery inspiration worldwide, Triple Darkness’ Iron Braydz is a war chief cutting heads off devils with no limitation and the deeper understanding the more you listen….With Verbal Swardz, we at least know the real brothers out in the UK are thriving in their own league.
