12 February 2010: Interview with E-Moe

Another great article for you to read. This time we managed to catch the Sacramento artist E-Moe and conduct an interview with him. Watch out, it is a very long and at the same time interesting read. This is so far the longest conversation we've ever had. E-Moe talks about lots of things including a part of Sacramento rap history, back stages of Siccmade projects, his passion towards various kinds of music, mixtape game, Internet marketing and more. The whole interview is up in the Interviews Section, it's just a sneak peak:

[ E-Moe ] : At this time I started to go out with my son's mom. It turns out that she was in a previous relationship with Triple 6 aka Sicx. At the time he was doing his thing with Brotha Lynch Hung, with a group called "Nigga Deep", and had just finished the X-Raided's project. These two releases where the biggest things Sac had going on at the time compared to the Bay. So I felt I was in a good place, at the beginning of something new.

Once we met one day, Sicx embraced me with open arms, even though I was the new man in his son's mother's life. With that being said, I was amazed and never really seen a dude react like that to the new guy. It's usually a bunch of drama between the two, which didn't happen at all! So I took it as a sign to follow my dream and this was my ticket. He started inviting me to his studio sessions to help him produce and mix his music for his new album he was workin' on, "Dead 4 Life". Then one day he introduced my to Lynch... I had known about his music and their names seemed to be the biggest thing goin' on the city at the time, so like I said, meeting them was a big part of why I decided to settle in Sac, while all of my other family members moved back to the Bay Area.

[ ] : Tell me something about organizing a compilation. You've got approx. 3 artists appearing on one track. At least 20+ different people throughout the whole project. How do you handle that?

[ Young Savi ] : Organizing a compilation is very difficult, 'cause you gotta make sure everybody's on point and make sure you put the right person on the right track. All it takes is one bad verse and the listener will skip to the next track as fast as it started. It starts with blueprints and matching beats with artists plus getting them in the studio to accomplish what needs to be done and put all the bullshit, play around attitudes to the side, strictly business when it's studio time. It all works out in the end when it comes to release date, 'cause it's so much support upon how many people contributed to making it happen. [...] [ read more ]
