A Conversation with Wendy Day (Pt. 1)

Thursday, November 20th, 2014


Words by Jimmy Ness

Wendy Day has been responsible for over a billon dollars in album sales, meaning she’s involved in shifting units comparable to Jay-Z and P-Diddy combined. But the 52-year-old isn’t a label shark profiting from manipulating artists into bad deals. She’s dedicated her life to building careers, sharing industry insight and negotiating fair contracts for rappers. In 1992, Wendy used her sizable life savings, stocks, Condo and BMW to fund non-profit organization Rap Coalition, a move that former Bad Boy accountant Bert Padell critiqued as “fucking crazy.” Day brokered some of the biggest deals in music history including Master P’s No Limit Records signing to Priority and Cash Money’s $30 million distribution deal with Universal, which allowed them to keep 85% of their royalties. The outspoken industry veteran held nothing back during our chat and has enough stories to fill several autobiographies. In part one of this interview, we discussed what 2pac planned for his next album, the time Freddie Foxx put a gun to Birdman’s head in public, 50 Cent crushing Young Buck, and a possible collaboration between Slick Rick and Kendrick Lamar.

Freddie Foxxx on The Combat Jack Show

Friday, June 27th, 2014


The legendary Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles appeared on the The Combat Jack Show and shared a lot of unfiltered rap history. Freddie discussed meeting Chuck D during a time where his life was on the line for the culture, his relationship with Tupac, being down with the Paid In Full Posse (Eric B.), his battle-rapping past, what happened with Queen Latifah/Flavor Unit, getting blackballed by Steve Stoute, what business lessons he learned from being around Naughty by Nature/D.I.T.C., being around Nas during his beef with Jay-Z and of course, his most famous beatdown stories dispelled.

I’m probably forgetting a lot but the full 2 hours is worth the time.

DJ JS-1 ft. Lil Fame, Joell Ortiz, Freddie Foxxx – Reppin’ New York

Monday, May 16th, 2011

JS-1 recruits three of the most intrinsically New York City MC’s to rep the Apple on this cut off his upcoming project No One Cares, out June 21st.

“Working with Freddie Foxxx and Lil Fame for the first time was such a treat. I have always loved, felt, and spun their music from day one,” says JS-1, who called up legendary DJ Premier to connect him with those MCs. “Joell is really dope and the ‘the new hope’ for NY artists still doing hardcore music,” he adds. “To work with all three of them and get them on the same song, especially in these days and times – it’s an honor.”

KRS-One & Bumpy Knuckles Are Doing an Album Together (Artwork)

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Kris and Freddie Foxxx are dropping an album called Royalty Check on May 31st.

Royalty Check is the perfect blend of all the qualities fans love and come to expect from these prolific MCs. With contrasting styles, the politically minded duo addresses a range of similar social issues, each using a very different approach. Bumpy Knuckles’ more ‘in your face’ philosophy is balanced out by KRS-One’s signature ‘stop the violence’ mantra.

The project was born out of a chance opportunity for Bumpy Knuckles and KRS-One to work face to face in the studio again. In the technology age, where artists primarily collaborate via digital channels, it’s rare that two MCs of their caliber have a chance to vibe together and feed off of each others creative energy in such an up close and personal way. And listeners will not be disappointed by the result.

Video: The Bumpy Knuckles Beatdown Explained

Monday, February 8th, 2010

“he go to take his jacket off…Bumpy beats him back up in his jacket, then beats him back up out of his jacket…”

While DJ Premier tapes the latest episode of Live From Headqcourterz up at Sirius, this dude Panchi tells the story of the beatdown that Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles handed out to that dude who was claiming Decepticons at SOB’s the other night during Statik’s release party. I didn’t see the beatdown, but I did see the 15 minute tirade that Decep-guy went on onstage while everybody looked on in awe/annoyance. I thought it was hilarious, but alot of people were, understandably, getting pissed (although I didn’t see anybody rushing onstage to try and take the mic from him).
