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

Featuring KXNG Crooked, Guilty Simpson, Young Bleed, Tone Chop, Sadat X and Boldy James, “Black Beach” is available through 22 Entertainment from iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Bandcamp The instrumentals used in the interview are made available for free when you purchase the album on Bandcamp
