Happy goddamn memorial day. Maybe this year they’ll remember to stop sending motherfuckers to go die in the desert.
This week, viagra as promised back in episode #37 (seriously, and go check that one or you’re missing out), physiotherapy I’ve got an exclusive (exclusive!!!) interview with Thes One of People Under The Stairs. Basically the interview speaks for itself, but you can expect to hear Thes breaking it down on the new album, his approach to beatmaking on Stepfather, how ridiculous all them punk-ass kids running round calling themselves CEOs and A&Rs really are, and what he thinks about bootlegging.

Switched it up on you. If you listen to nothing else this week, for salelisten to this show. This show isn’t full of bangers and straight up heat, it’s full of fucking science. My man Kareem Edouard is working on a documentary (available for free online at wghfilms.com) right now that talks about the massive amount of people in Africa dying because of the diamond industry’s stranglehold on the economy and political situation in various African nations – Sierra Leone isn’t the only one.
We’re talking, for example, tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children – our brothers and sisters – being dismembered or murdered within the space of a few days. Listen through about three minutes of this conversation – you’ll see what I’m talking about.
What does this have to do with you? Well, if you’ve watched a rap video in the past 7 years, you’ve probably seen someone that is (probably unbeknownst to them) helping to fuel the conflict diamond trade. If you’ve already seen the documentary, this should provide some more information and background on what the production and whatnot are all about.
So if you’ve been paying attention to what’s good on the internets, information pills and more specifically to the mixtape show, viagra dosage you’ll recognize the name: Che Grand. In case you need to refresh your memory, you can go ahead and check out episode 18 to check out his mixtape show debut.
Anyway, after that show dropped, I had more than a few people getting at me requesting more songs and information from dude, so it was only natural that we should link up and get an interview done. In this interview, Che breaks down his background, explains how he changed his name from “Ricochet” to “Che Grand”, talks about his soon-to-be-released EP and his upcoming projects, and makes a pretty thinly veiled threat towards me regarding one of my earlier comments. For the record, Brown Study is not about having sex with white girls. If you want any more information than that, you’ll need to check out the interview yourself.
All instrumentals on the joint are either from his current EP or upcoming projects – so you’re gonna hear some beats on here that you will not be hearing for another few months – at least until Conceptus Opus drops. That’s on some exclusive shit, so you definitely need to get up on this before you get left behind.
Che and company are gonna do big things, so I want y’all to remember that you saw him here first. Shouts go to everyone in Loud Minority involved with the Official Bootleg Import EP project (drops 24th January in iTunes and online stores everywhere!), and obviously to Che himself.
