    Agallah - The 730 Interview

    Agallah and I did our first interview about ten years ago. This is back in the Purple City days and his first official release was dropping, You Already Know. When we started the interview, it only took one question for 8Off to tear through almost every subject I had questions for. I’m staring at my phone, feeling a mixture of confusion, because I don’t know how I’m going to run an interview that was only one question, but more awe, definitely more awe, because this was a dude that fully believed in his project and himself as an artist and was so damn excited to talk about it that questions be damned, he has a platform and he’s going to use it.

    Fast forward ten years, and as Biggie said, things done changed. While his music has advanced, both sonically and in the diverse subject matters, you wouldn’t know it talking to Ag. On this cold night, I’m in Virginia and he’s outside San Antonio, spending time with his aunt, who just emerged victorious after a bout with breast cancer. There should be a lot to be happy about, but there isn’t.

    The pain of losing Sean Price last August is still ever-present, so much so that Ag stops the interview at one point to compose himself. Sean wasn’t just a rapper friend and someone Agallah worked with. They were childhood friends, dudes who stuck together when the industry was over both of them, before Sean’s resurgence with Monkey Barz. As devastating a loss as Sean Price was to the hip-hop world, it’s much, much worse for those who knew the real Sean, the friend, the father, the husband.

    Despite the pain, Agallah released his new album, Bo: The Legend of the Water Dragon, to reaffirm his place in the game and remind everyone that while he’s been suffering, he’s paid his dues and he’s still one of the most talented in the game, both on the beats and the mic. On the album, Ag works through the pain of losing Sean Price, releases the final finished song of them together, and fires some much-needed shots into the air just to let everyone know he’s still here and while he may be down, he’s far from out, the one common thread from our first convo back in ‘06.

    Bruse Wane feat. Sean Price – Beast Inside

    0 (7)

    Wane Enterprises CEO and New York artist Bruse Wane presents the G-Town Filmz-directed music video for “Beast Inside”, his Dollarz-produced single featuring Sean Price. “Beast Inside” comes hot on the heels of the release of the video for his freestyle over Biggie’s “Who Shot Ya” (watch) as well as “Return Of The Spitters (RMX)” featuring Keith Murray and Fam-Illy (watch), featured on his newest full-length The Dark Knight Album.. The Day The Earth Stood Still. A native of the Bronxdale Houses Projects in the Soundview section of the Bronx, Bruse founded Wane Enterprises in 2001, hosting events featuring Styles P, Papoose, N.O.R.E, Buckshot and Remy Ma. “When we finished recording it I felt good about it, but the album had so much other good material I did not necessarily view it as a mandatory single,” says Bruse. “People around me would hear it and be like ‘Yo this shit is tough, you gotta let this breathe’. So I was like ‘you know what, if I’ma release it, I’m gonna take this shit over the top. I called my man Sean Price at his crib, and told him I wanted him on it. A couple of days later he shot me the song back with some hard ass barz, and I knew it was go time!”
