“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).

Back in 2004, Sam Scarfo was the Fight Klub chance and was all over street DVDs like Smack. He was immediately signed to Def Jam during Jay-Z’s presidency and it was one of the only signings both Jay and L.A. Reid immediately agreed on. Long story short, the Plainfield, New Jersey native never dropped anything on Def Jam and was later released. As an independent artist, Sam Scarfo worked closely with Prodigy of Mobb Deep and stayed creating music, but his music from his Def Jam days sat on hard drives collecting dust. But last week, Sam Sceezy unleashed some of his standout tracks from his Def Jam days on the album 5 Million Stories, which has features from Nate Dogg, Ghostface Killah, Fabolous, and others and is available both as a free EP download or a deluxe album at all major music spots. ProfileWild chopped it up with Sam Scarfo on 5 Million Stories, Nate Dogg, his new music, where he’s been, the Hollow and Joe Budden battle, his battle history (including his one and only loss), his upcoming album with Ski Beatz, and much more in this exclusive interview.
