Normally we have an interview with a rapper, producer, or a writer. On this week’s episode we are talking to Namir Blade, a performer who rejects such limiting labels and prefers to be referred to as an artist. He just released a new album, Metropolis on Mello Music Group and we are intrigued by his utilization of multiple vocal techniques, his production prowess, and his general swag. In the opening segment we begin to reckon with ELUCID’s massive new album I Told Bessie. Demone in particular has some nuanced takes that may help newcomers understand the great MC’s unique technique. Perhaps we will delve further into that in the near future.
