[ BayUndaground.com ] : How would you describe your style? What distinguishes you from other contemporary rap artists?

[ Big Chill ] : My style is I have no style. I do what I want to when I want to. You'll never know how I'm going to rap next. I like to keep it exciting and make people wonder what I'm going to do next as far as styles go. I don't put a tag on me, 'cause that's how rappers play out. Rappers these days are too busy trying to come up with a gimmick that they hope will catch on, so they can quickly cash out, 'cause they don't give a damn about hip-hop in the first place. That's why we have more rappers and less legends these days. I love hip-hop and when all said and done I want to be the face of Modesto when people think of rap in the Valley. I'm going for legend status, not a quick cash out. [...] [ read more ]

We had a long conversation with Tha Grindhouse formerly known as Gemini - an 831, Soledad, Central California representative. A rapper, CEO, businessman, supporter, turns out even a photographer. In this brand new interview he told us much about his beginnings, what the underground rap scene looks like from the inside. He also portrays the Central Coast music market, describes his relationships with other rappers, speaks of changing his alias, serious attitude towards business and a lot more. It is a very informative read, so I highly encourage you to check it out in our Interviews Section.

[ BayUndaground.com ] : 2Face Ent. features a new logo - does it also mean a different approach to music business?

[ Grindhouse ] : A different approach to the music business? Yes indeed. When 2Face artist are in the studio, there is no alcohol, drugs, or any type of mind distortion. Any artist that wants to jump on board and claims they need to drink a little or get high to write? Should seriously reconsider not quiting their day job. It's clear in my mind that the weed & alcohol do not enhance your writing skills. If that was true, you would be on a major & touring with big names. A true artist doesn't need enhancements of any sort to write. Anybody who feels they do, should realize that perhaps this game is not for them. Rap is poetry in motion, so it doesn't come from your mind, it should be coming from your heart. I take this music serious & just like anybody in their right frame of mind wouldn't show up to work drunk, or high... is the same approach I take & stress to my artist. [...] [ read more ]

Big thanks to Smokey of Da We Mobb for organizing the interview with Oakland trio Da We Mobb who released their self titled debut this year. It is a very long, yet interesting read, so I highly encourage you to peep it in our Interviews Section.

[ BayUndaground.com ] : You released your project in a very professional digipak, instead of a normal jewel case, let alone slim case. Is it sort of a counterbalance for "digital onlies" being popular lately?

[ Smokey ] : Yeah, I felt like we had to play our part by coming with quality product from the West Coast and have somethin extra for the consumer & da streets, especially at a time when da focus has been going strictly digital and record stores are goin out of business. I feel like in a time when radio isn't really supporting their local artists in their own markets, that the presentation has to be on point. As long as we can we will continue to press up physical cds, we will, because the artwork is integral to the project and concept of the album, but most importantly u get the music at it's highest quality. When music gets downgraded to mp3 it loses some sound quality. U lose some essence, feeling, even bass. The average consumer won't care, but there are still people out there who care about things like that. That's why Dre can sell 350.00 headphones in a recession, ya digg lol... [...] [ read more ]
