Cole James Cash is a producer you should be checking for, whether it’s his intricate instrumental projects or how he has the ability to bring the gutterest of gutter bars out of MCs. Hailing from the Bay Area, Cole James Cash was originally into the EDM scene as a DJ before delving into the production game. As he made headway in the game, though, his addiction to prescription pills became so overpowering that Cole James Cash did a stint in rehab. Today, while fighting the urge to go back to that life, we find the talented producer focused on raising his family and his upcoming projects, the most recent of which will be Street Champion, an album inspired by the classic Street Fighter II. Check out Cole James Cash in this exclusive interview, as he details putting the album together, fighting his addiction, his production process, and much more.

“I’m the plug, I got whatever you need,” Trigger-Happy Pappy raps on his DJ Premier-assisted cut “The Plug”. The Brooklyn MC has made a living out of giving fans exactly what he thought they needed – clever boom-bap lyrics that resonated with fans far outside of New York. Whether it was with near 80-minute mixtapes that he seemed to drop damn-near every month or the long-awaited debut album The Nacirema Dream, Papoose’s creative concepts and lyrical dexterity put him in a class above other MCs, from the mixtape era, from New York, from anywhere, period. With a new album, You Can’t Stop Destiny, we find Papoose delving into more personal issues, such as fatherhood, marital bliss, and not playing the field, while never straying from his classic punchlines and aggressive delivery. Whether he’s rapping next to his wife Remy Ma or rocking over a classic backdrop from DJ Premier, Showbiz, or Ron Browz, Papoose shines on his latest. He recently sat down with WeGoinIN to discuss the album, his life, Love and Hip-Hop, and much more in this exclusive interview.

“I’m a petal from an iron rose/My kung-fu is the iron robe,” Vast Aire raps on “Iron Rose.” From his animated bars to Vordul Mega’s calculated, piercing lyrics, Can Ox proves the Iron Galaxy Clique is back and stronger than ever. As their new album, Blade of the Ronin, continues to spread like an iron eagle, Can Ox proves they can pick up where they left off with their critically-acclaimed debut Cold Vein, an album that continues to garner praise even fourteen years after its release date. While Vast Aire and Vordul Mega purused solo careers, it wasn’t enough for Can Ox fans. There’s something about that IGC chemistry. Sonically, it’s a new time and a new sound for Cannibal Ox. There’s no more spacy El-P-produced bangers like there was on Cold Vein. Instead, the duo enlisted producer Bill Cosmiq to handle the sounds on Blade of the Ronin, with the exception of Black Milk, who produced “Blade: The Art of Ox.” Before heading out to Chicago for a show, Vast Aire takes some time to chop it up with ProfileWild about coming back together with Vordul, why Can Ox is so beloved by fans and the praises only grow larger over time, reflect on Cold Vein, remember Camu Tao, what it’d be if he ran into El-P and Cage today, and drop a dope acapella that you should recognize to close out the interview.
