Ab Soul: “As [Ab Soul’s] portfolio builds, he’s touted for his ability to dig deeper on every track and create thought-provoking lyrics each time he’s in the booth. The rest of Black Hippy has labeled him the “Einstein” of the group, but Ab-Soul is more than that. He’s brilliant without being condescending, smoked out without being incoherent. Ab-Soul has mastered his own control system.”

Cardiak: “I’m a producer so I’ll come up with an idea for the hook but as far as me [rapping]…” [Cardiak] tells The BoomBox with a laugh. “Nah, I’m good on that. I know what my true calling is so I’m good with the rapping and all that.”

DJ Spinz: “To actually go to Japan,” he says, still incredulous, “Where people don’t speak the same language as you or even have the same culture, for them to enjoy the music that you bring and embrace your culture, that’s a beautiful thing to me.”

DJ OG Ron C: “The funniest thing that happens is having drunk fans come up and show love,” Ron C admits. “They don’t mean no harm but they’re just amazed to see someone whose music they love. They get so excited. Slurring and swearing, making their chicks take pictures with you, making you grab their chick’s ass.”

Big Sean: “I think this one is definitely gonna be way more heartfelt,” [Sean] shares. “I think that the label definitely got to me and was controlling a lot of the first one. They wanted to make sure that I had singles for the radio and all that and I feel like with this one I have a lot more freedom and I’ve learned so much, man. I’ve become a man, I’ve seen so much and I get inspired by people I’ve been running into.”

LoveRance: “The reason I started pushing “Up” heavily was because I felt like it would define my lifestyle. I was throwing parties and all that stuff so it was a feel-good song. We not killing nobody, we not talking about selling drugs or nothing of that nature, plus everybody does it [sex], so I felt it would be something everybody could relate to.”

Ca$h Out: “A lot of work on my end, in my streets, and where I’m from and the surrounding areas. I put in a lot of work. ‘Cashin’ Out’ is just the single that opened the door for everything else, all the other great music that I have, besides ‘Cashin’ Out.'”

At the NYC pop-up shop. Focused on an autograph right before he jumped on a chair and shouted “Look I’m 6 foot 9!”.
