  • Labba – The ProfileWild Interview

    Labba - The ProfileWild Interview

    Labba, who hails from Flatbush, has been in the game for more than a minute, from rocking mics alongside Busta Rhymes to Action Bronson. After seeing the game from a different angle during his time messing with Violator in a unique deal that, although he worked alongside Busta, never saw him as a member of the Flipmode Squad, Labba ventured out on his own, armed with new knowledge of the game as well as a new plan. Lately, Labba’s been recording with the legendary P.F. Cuttin, who gives his scathing, brutally honest feedback to a host of legends he records, including Masta Ace and Sean Price, for the Labba Ranks album, a nod to his reggae roots cultivated since childhood. In this exclusive interview, Labba talks about what it takes to make it as an independent artist, reminisces on recording with Busta, discusses what it takes to effectively fuse hip-hop and reggae, and much more in this exclusive interview.

  • Meyhem Lauren – The ProfileWild Interview

    Meyhem ProfileWild

    Some artists spend their entire career chasing a particular sound, and one of the most hip-hop of hip-hop soundscapes is that classic Queens sound. Gutter sample, hard drums, and the rhymes to match. While Meyhem Lauren can sound comfortable over any style of beat, he sounds most comfortable and most in his element over the gritty production of producers like J-Love, Harry Fraud, and of course Buckwild. Together, Meyhem worked with the legendary Diggin’ in the Crates producer on Silk Pyramids, an LP showcasing Meyhem’s talent for putting words together behind Buckwild’s classic brand of boom-bap. ProfileWild sits down with Meyhem Laurenovitch to talk about Silk Pyramids, what it’s like working with Buckwild, how his rhymes come together, his top ten or so Queens albums, his album with DJ Muggs, Action Bronson, what he’s been cooking, and how Dani’s House of Pizza fuels his rhymes.
