B-Real on Latinos in Hip Hop, Cardi B, Snoop, Dr Dre, Eminem, Boo Yaa Tribe, New Album, Scott Storch
Hard Knock Tv’s Nick Huff Barili sits down with B Real of the legendary group Cypress Hill for in-depth interview. The interview begins with B Real talking about his childhood growing up in a Mexican and Cuban household in LA, riding around on BMX bikes as a child, being pulled into gang life and leaving the street life to join Cypress Hill. As the interview continues, B Real and Nick talk about Latino’s contributions to the four elements of Hip Hop and how a lot of times people forget that Latino’s have been part of the culture since the beginning. DJ Charlie Chase of the Cold Crush, Devastating Tito of The Fearless Four, Prince Markie Dee of Fat Boys, Rock Steady Crew, and Graffiti artist like Lee Quiñones are all examples of Latino’s who played a major role in Hip Hop at its birth. Often times Hip Hop radio stations will hire Latino djs as on air personalities but won’t play Hip Hop music created by Latinos. Why are there not more Latino rappers in main stream Hip Hop? B-Real points out that Cardi B has become a superstar but not many Latino artists are getting love in mainstream Hip Hop. With Cardi’s success, hopefully artists like Snow tha Product and Revrie will get their shine too. As the conversation transitions, B Real and Nick talk about Black and Brown unity and B Real’s friendship with Snoop (Mount Kushmore feat. Redman, B-Real, & Method Man album coming soon?) and Ice Cube. B Real also talks about his new Serial Killers album with Xzibit and Demrick and details what it was like working in the studio with Dr Dre for his new project. B Real talks about working with Eminem and Boo Yaa Tribe on the song 911 and why Eminem got Boo Yaa to protect him back then. Before the interview comes to an end B Real details his new solo album that will be coming out top of next year and is being produced by Scott Storch, He also shares his thoughts on legalization of cannabis and Jay Z getting into the business.
