    junclassic - The 730 Interview (July 2016)

    When you’re eleven albums deep in the game, it’d be easy to get stuck in your ways, settle into an easy formula, and let cruise control take over. Lucky for us, junclassic, keeps finding new ways to reinvent himself and continues to show growth. On Better Than Fiction Too, the sequel to Better Than Fiction, the Queens product continues exploring his identity while crafting clever punchlines and getting personal, like on the tribute “Father’s Day.” jun chops it up with us while remembering an MC near and dear to our hearts, Nut Nillz.

    It’s always good to chop it up with you. Before we get into the album, Better Than Fiction Too, I wanted to talk to you about the tragic passing of Nut Nillz, who you’ve been down with for such a long time.

    Oh, man, Nut Nillz was just such a dope dude. One of the illest cats and one of the hungriest MCs. One of the livest brothers that you’ll meet, straight from the streets of Brick City, Newark, New Jerz. Lived a life a lot of these rappers fabricate. You could never even imagine the reality of it but he was such a humble dude. He lived hard, man, and was such a dope MC and was so live on stage. He was just the embodiment of a live dude. If you was wack on the mic, he would let you know. He was the type to go to your show and challenge you if he didn’t feel that you were dope. He showed me and K-Sise a lot of love from the outset.

    junclassic – The ProfileWild Interview + 730 Freestyle

    junclassic - The ProfileWild Interview

    After nine albums, one would expect and even allow an artist to start running out of fresh topics and ideas. With junclassic, though, that’s not what’s happening. On his tenth album, Words are Weapons, jun spits fresh perspectives on important social issues complete with his trademark punchlines and acid delivery. From the Maniac-produced boom-bap of “Lunch Table” to the introspective “Babe Ruth,” jun cements his place as a voice to be heard and that he’s only getting better with time. Finding some time on a cold February night, jun sits down with ProfileWild to discuss his tenth album and how his songs and albums come together to social issues like police brutality and protesting the acquittal of Eric Garner’s murderer. Another must-hear interview from PW and make sure you stay tuned after the interview for a dope 730 freestyle.

    junclassic – The Catch Up

    junclassic is one of the first artists I met when I got into this crazy hip-hop game back in ‘03. We met through mutual friends Ceez and E-Mid, at the time known as Manifest Destiny. jun was part of his own crew with K-Sise, the always-dope Dynamix. Over the past 11 years, I’ve had the pleasure of watching junclassic attack the microphone with a consistent passion that’s damn-near unheard of. After releasing a slew of albums and free projects, jun’s music has definitely hit the major circuits and he’s developed an organic fanbase of real heads. If you’re just catching up, though, we got’cha back, as jun runs you through some of his most memorable tracks.
