Last week, Demetrius, Kenny and Julius from Horseshoe Gang dropped by the Inglewood studios of Homegrown Radio as guests of the HGR Live Show.

During the Long Beach group’s most in depth interview ever, they discussed a huge range of issues relating to the group directly and the wider world of hip hop and politics.

The interview began with the concept behind their album title “Anti-Trap Music” released earlier in April and their massive level of output over the years, including their Mixtape Monthly series which lasted a full year.

They explain this work ethic has its roots in a musical family background, and also explain their mother’s role in their education, the brothers never having attended public school and having often experienced homelessness.

They discuss last year’s rap battle with Funk Volume, provide an insight to their upcoming new album “4 Brothers”, and address the wider subject of why they haven’t stepped into the rap battle arena or pursued solo projects.

A debate follows as to how rappers are rated, what defines a lyricist given the multitude of styles, and how aware a younger generation will be of anything not currently the staple diet of mainstream radio or clubland.

The conversation turns political, addressing recent high profile cases of police brutality and how the options available at the US elections might help, if at all.

With the interview drawing to a close, the studio addresses the recent VH1 Hip Hop Honors for Female Rappers before the group reveal they will appear as judges on a new tv talent show “One Shot” due to be shown on B.E.T. from August 23rd.

LISTEN BACK !

The group will be releasing a new video for “Shoe-icide Squad” – described as their version of NWA’s “Fuck the Police” – in the next few days. Connect with them on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram

ATM-TheRealHipHop

Little while back, Chicago journalist Sherron Shabazz, owner of the online The Real Hip Hop jumped on Skype with Long Beach group Horseshoe Gang shortly after the relase of their album “Anti-Trap Music”

They spoke at length about a variety of subjects beginning with the meaning behind the album title and the concept that large areas of hip hop today has moved away from carrying any real message of note.

The discussion moved on to their song “Shoe-icide Squad”, quoted by some as a modern day “Fuck The Police”, and the incident involving Chicago’s Laquan McDonald who was shot and killed by police is debated in the context of their single. The subject then moves to the years they’ve operated as a group, comparing that to most others who inevitably break up as the urge to fly solo becomes too strong, whereas the four brothers see their future as a unit.

The feature also sees them outline the knowledge passed down to them by their elder brother Crooked I while they go into some of the finer detail behind their well documented rap battle with Hopsin’s Funk Volume.

ATM-OnTheComeUpTV

West coast rappers Horseshoe Gang jumped on Skype recently with UK journalist Thomas Schofield shortly after the release of their new album “Anti-Trap Music”.

Interviewing the group for London’s On The Come Up TV, they spoke about the earliest days and the transformation from The Untouchable Gang to their present moniker and their establishment within the COB movement.

They spoke about issues they feel they sometimes face in networking with other artists, and how they view the modern day version of rap battles, especially in light of their own well documented response to Funk Volume’s $500,000 challenge last year.

The interview concludes with the theme of the album title and how the group want to help inform the younger generations of traditional hip hop values in a modern context, and use the best of the old and the new to help push the culture forward

ATM-RespectMag

Couple weeks back, Respect Magazine contributor Jeremy Hecht jumped on Skype with the four members of west coast rap group Horseshoe Gang shortly after the release of their album “Anti-Trap Music”

During a very in-depth discussion they talk about the group dynamic, working together as four blood brothers and among the the earliest memories, Dice reveals the time Tupac offered him $100 to smoke a blunt and meeting Jay-Z, Jada Pinkett, Dr Dre, and Eric B & Rakim at Snoop’s house!

The interview then comes through the ages, the group giving their thoughts on today’s new artists by comparison to what they grew up listening to, and the differences in song structure method. While hip hop has evolved and diversified, with people finding their own lane, the group challenge aspects of the current debates comparing the different genres.

More specifically, they suggest people be exposed to all styles before assuming to speak with authority on the merits or otherwise of a particular genre – if you aint heard it, you can’t be speaking on it. This then moves the conversation on again to differentiate between those who can make a quick financial killing now, and those who will be held in esteem over the decades.

Inevitably the route of the discussion turns to the album title where they explain more the significance of lyrical content, and how it influences a younger generation, that artists need to take responsibility at some point for what they say. There is an underlying theme in the interview where the group are speaking to a younger generation, whether of listeners or of new artsists. With the latter, they finish the interview with some sound advice
