    Cormega - The 730 Interview

     

    The Realness is an album that has stood the test of time. Created over fifteen years ago, Cormega was carrying a huge burden. Released from Def Jam after his debut album, The Testament, being shelved and no longer a member of The Firm, to say Cormega had something to prove on The Realness would be an understatement. There was the label that didn’t believe. A group that cut him loose. And fans that were waiting, some questioning if he could do it on his own, others knowing and waiting with anticipation.

    The Realness was the answer to everyone and everything. The classic debut, released through Landspeed, showed that not only could Mega rap his ass off, but he didn’t need a glitzy crew that was more show than prove or a major label’s budget and backing to be successful. The Realness was an instant classic to fans and proved that Cormega was not only better off as a solo artist, but that he had the potential to build a strong independent career, relying on himself and not needing a cosign from anyone.

    And while plenty of artists and fans can attest to Cormega’s legendary status today, remember that he never asked for it nor needed it. It’s great, and he’ll tell you himself he appreciates it, but it’s not what drives him, fifteen years later, to continue creating introspective and lyrical hip-hop that withstands the test of time. In this interview, Cormega speaks about the impact of The Realness, his artistic perspective, and much more.

    It’s the 15 year anniversary of The Realness. Congratulations. When you look at that today, does it even seem possible?

    Nah. Time definitely flies. It doesn’t feel like it. But I’m happy. (more…)

    Nutso - The ProfileWild Interview

    “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).
