Don Status, the title of Agallah’s latest mixtape, is redundant in a sense because it implies that Ag has reached a level that he’s been at for over a decade. For years, Agallah has been one of the best MC/producers in the game, crafting a unique sound both on the mic and behind the boards that is reminiscent of the mid-’90s, the era he came up in, but far from being stuck there. Agallah catches up with ProfileWild to talk about his latest project, showing love to up-and-coming artists, his production process, if he’d ever get back with Purple City, the making of “Crookie Monster,” what other voices he can do, and much more in a sense.in a classic interview for the ages. Stay tuned after the freestyle as Ag rocks a 730 beat for your listening pleasure.

“I rap for lifers and felons,” Nutso proclaims on “Unda Ground,” the intro to his latest EP, Divided Souls, completed with DJ Pain 1 and his Divided Souls production team. But Nutso’s lyrics transcend and boxes one may try to place them in. Perhaps Nutso’s most important gift as an MC is his ability to describe the beautiful struggle while never slacking on a bar. While the Queens product has dropped a slew of quality EPs over the past few years, he’s also stayed busy working with and showing love to the next generation of MCs on the rise. With a winner-take-all mentality and the quality music to back him up, Nutso shows why he’s one of the most consistent and gifted MCs coming out of the NYC. In this exclusive interview, we talk about Divided Souls, finding success as an indie artist, his new album with Domingo titled Red Sunday, working with legends like Kool G. Rap, and much more. Stay tuned after the interview as Nutso drops an exclusive acapella and survives a round of questions served via the Random Question Generator (if you want to know what homie’s last dream was, here’s your chance).

Lord Nez is the embodiment of the classic Queens ethos – raw, honest intricate lyrics over beats that sound like they were literally made in a QU gutter at 3 am to the flashy, bright beats that maintains universal appeal without the sellout factor, proof that it can be done. From working for Russell Simmons to rhyming alongside Capone-N-Noreaga, Lord Nez’s diverse experiences in the industry have made him into who he is today – a classically-modern MC with the sole purpose of making head-nodding music that makes the listener think, reflect, and question. Nez stops by ProfileWild to talk about his classic cuts with the likes of Large Professor and Hi-Tek, his musical growth, paying homage to the vets and legends, his new video series, and much more in this exclusive interview. Stay tuned after the interview for some exclusive acapella flames too.

Here’s the first new track Cashmere and I have recorded since our Beats and Rhymes project dropped almost two years ago. In a way, we’re picking up right where we left off – dope beats, dope rhymes. But a lot’s changed since our last album; the most significant change is the passing of Cash’s father, which he addresses for the first time in “I Know.” This is a special track for both of us, as Cashmere tackles important personal and social issues while we continue what we started.
