Lil’ Lody: “I watch the industry and I see in the industry circles, most of those people who are around, they’re cool but a lot of them are “do boys.” Like, with my own camp, I don’t have “do boys” around me. Everybody’s their own boss and have their own job and their own lane. Everybody calls the shots around me so that’s what helps us keep it eye to eye because nobody around me is bigger than the other.”

Songs About Drugs: ‘Styles waxes poetic about trees over the bulk of [‘Good Times’], citing its therapeutic qualities as a plus when moving in a stressful, unfair world. But just as it seems Styles is moving into politics, he doubles back, barking, “I get high ’cause f— it/ What’s better to do?/ And I’ma never give a f— ’cause I’m better than you…”‘

Yo Gotti- “Live From the Kitchen” In-Store: I rode to the Southside of Atlanta a couple weeks ago to do this interview for AOL’s The Boombox. Gotti seemed completely calm to have been celebrating his first major label debut. I mean, I guess he isn’t necessarily new to this. My partner in crime, (some of the time, LOL) Russ caught some good footage of the whole event and a few interview questions as well. Check it.

A.P.: “The back drop [of ‘Will I.E.’] was really, really soul driven because that was one of the main things that went on in my house when it wasn’t drugs and violence and bullshit and arguing between my mother and father… All that was drowned by them playing Marvin Gaye or Donny Hathaway and in the other room I got my sister playing LL [Cool J] and EPMD, yanahmean?”

Big KRIT: “[Laughs] I mean, as far as me being a producer and making music, as far as southern hip-hop is concerned, being a fan of Three 6 Mafia and a lot of hard core groups back in the day, that music is still in me as well. To be able to do a song like [“Rob Me A Ni**ga”]… It’s not 100 percent meaning that I’m gonna go and rob somebody but the thought process.”
