Rocking a crowd is one of the top 2 or 3 skills every MC must possess, there’s just no getting around it. Master of Ceremonies is literally the job description. In recent years, with the decline in record sales and other sources of artist’s income, hitting the road and connecting with fans in person is now more important to an artists career than it ever was. For our new series The Green Room, we will document this sometimes fun, but often stressful and grueling aspect of a Rapper’s career. For our first installment we caught up with U-God, one the most well traveled MCs from a crew that has been around the world more times than anybody can count. He spoke to us about the early days on the road with the rest of the Wu, his pre-performance rituals, some of the Clan’s most memorable performances and much more.
