Video: Rhymefest Interview w/ RubyHornet (Full)

Monday, July 27th, 2009

The full interview was split up into 3 parts. Above Rhymefest talks to DJ RTC about letting go of fear, leaving J Records, and fame. Here’s RubyHornet’s take on it:

Editing any Rhymefest interview can be a daunting task. Named a Twitter “must follow” by the LA Times, Rhymefest has a lot to talk about both in and out of the music business. We met Fest on a Wednesday evening in June, as he was recording a feature for Sadat X at Grant Parks’ studio just outside Chicago. Just a week before our interview, Fest announced that he was granted a release from J Records, and that his sophomore album, El Che, would be released in the coming months as an indie project. The anticipation for the album has been well documented, as last year at this time Rhymefest was dealing with leaks from the record thanks to a stolen iPod. Many in Chicago’s Hip Hop community have whispered that Rhymefest should have released his second album during that time to capitalize on the daily posting concerning the music. However, all of the talk was news to Rhymefest, who said during our interview, “all that s**t people talk, don’t nobody say it to your face.” A self-pronounced approachable guy, Rhymefest spoke candidly to us about the timing for El Che, his feelings on music (“I don’t like it”), censorship and much, much more. Sit back and enjoy as we present the uncut Rhymefest Interview.

Parts 2-3 after the jump. Props to DJ RTC.
