  • Cashmere – The ProfileWild Interview

    Cashmere - The ProfileWild Interview

    When it comes to putting in work, Brooklyn’s Cashmere is no stranger. From grinding on the mixtapes back in the 2000s with game-changers like Kay Slay to taking the independent route with both middle fingers to the sky, Cashmere has meticulously mapped his own path in the game while building an organic following of loyal listeners. This past December, Cashmere finally released his long-awaited album Ready to Live, thanks in large part to new business partner and Sound Unity Entertainment founder DJ B.Original. In an exclusive interview with ProfileWild, Cash discusses his evolution as an artist, what it took to get Ready to Live out, his move from Brooklyn to L.A., and much more.

  • L.A.D. (La the Darkman) – The ProfileWild Interview

    L.A.D. - The ProfileWild Interview

    L.A.D., known to many as La the Darkman, wears many hats in throughout the course of the day. Whether he’s running Aphilliates Music Group and letting the ink dry on their new deal with Sony or hitting the booth to record for any one of his upcoming EPs or album, L.A.D. stays working. That work ethic is what’s allowed L.A.D. to remain relevant in a game where a lot of his peers back in the ‘90s are gone and/or disgruntled at where the game is today. Not only has La helped make Gangsta Grillz a staple in hip-hop beyond the mixtape circuit, but he’s managed careers and written for artists like Trey Songz and Nelly. Having just released La Paraphernalia, an EP of newer music that goes deeper than his vast vault of mixtapes, the Gun Ru vet took some time to sit down with ProfileWild to talk about A.M.G.’s new Sony venture, his recording process, the new music, and of course his classic debut, Heist of the Century in this exclusive interview.

  • Poison Pen – The ProfileWild Interview

    Image-1

    Poison Pen’s something of a utility man in this rap game, capable of playing any position well while representing Bed Stuy to the fullest. Whether he’s ripping stages with the likes of Immortal Technique and Diabolic, hosting or judging any battle that means something, or just straight-up recording, Pen remains a force to be reckoned with. After this interview was conducted (early September 2014), Pen lost his Rebel Armz brother J-Arch over Thanksgiving and recently hosted his tribute show and has been helping raise money for J-Arch’s family. While we don’t talk about this in the interview, Pen does touch on the battle rap game, being pulled from judging the Hollow-Joe Budden battle at Budden’s request, his upcoming album with Chino XL, his writing process, the overuse of hand sanitizer, and much more in this insightful interview.
