Summary

Hells Winter in Boston. In his exclusive interview with UGHH.com, Cage talks about his new Def Jux album, Depart From Me and his progession as a man and a musician. This of course leads to a hot topic, namely his recent and drastic image shift. Listen as Cage explains why he shifted to a look that internet fanboys have blindly labeled "emo".

Comment: fuck all the ppl saying cage is wack cuz he looks emo and aint all fucked up on drugs. cage was ill back then and is still ill now. you cant stay a dusted up crazy fucker forever, he grew up some, so what? think.. he's a father too. if you listen to his shit and don't like it fine don't listen, it's his music not yours. make your own shit if he or anyone else ain't making shit you want to hear. but if all you want to hear about is dust smoking, gun totin shit, you better pick the pipe up and start packing pistols. I don't care what mc's rap about but for the most part come real, and if cage quit doing this and that then yeah quit rappin about it. he's being honest and for that he's "emo"? eat shit

Comment: Wow I had no idea Cage lost his mind. He came to my town about a year and a half ago and this was before this transformation. This guy seems like he is lost in his own skin - like a kid in high school trying to find what clique he belongs too. I feel sorry for him. I know he's bipolar and really messed up emotionally as it is but DAMN son. This poor white boy has deteriorated to the point of using words like "neat" in his interview. I will NOT be buying his next album. You just lost a fan Cage.

Comment: wow cage looks like shit. anyway I understand that he's sober now, but honestly his sound is not the cage I grew up to. I donno, I think everyone who's listened to him for a long time feels the same. his music use to be something that would pump you up for a robbery. now my little sister bumps his shit... wtf?

Comment: Dearest Cousin Larry, an image is something real. He's an entertainer so of course hes perpetuating an image but an image has the power to perpetuate myth.if you dont know you better ask somebody. and why would he be fake? sure his opinions aren't as open-minded as he would like to think of them to be but who are you to say his music isnt real nowadays. Maybe, just maybe, he evolved into something real, maybe he had to go through that to make the music he does nowadays

Comment: Yo, people say we're being too close minded by sayin this shit is gay? I say people are bein too open minded by sayin this shit is ok to do. This is hiphop...lets try to have a little bit of traditionalism. People are afraid to say that shit is wack...like they gotta accept everything that comes out as being "new" "progessive" and ok to do. FUCK THAT...what ever happened to that boom bap. And if Cage is only acting like his real self now, then wtf has he been up to for the last 15 years? People who flip like that just cant be viewed as real...sorry. Also, I'm not hatin, but I think its a lot easier for some of these UK cats to accept this new bullshit cuz they been involved in hiphop since what...2001?? hahaha...sorry people, we started it, we tend to take shit a little more personally when cats like Cage fuck it up.

Comment: Rockjeddy, you have that 1/2 right...he's perpetuationg...an IMAGE not something real. But that is NOT dope. "Damn Cage is the realest artist of his creed" which creed is that? The druged out lunatic creed? The sensitive emo fag creed? The "neat" creed? The battle rapper creed? Only asking because you cannot be all of the above. Sooner or later you have to admit he's FAKE.

Comment: If "keeping ot real" no longer matters, just say so. When cats pull a 180 and leave you scratching your head about who they are, I am not cool with that. Sorry. I understand that we all evolve but this shit feels way too much like an act to me. Will the real Cage please stand up? I was never a fan but this new thing is just silly. Don't get it twisted, my friends are all having a good laugh over the whole thing. We have been aware of his clownliness for years. We don't give a fuck, this is a source of laughter for me. Watch, Cage will be someone else soon. Like when El P putting fake blood on his face the other night in Boston. Like Aesop's trucker hats. These dudes are so innovative that they follow lame ass pseudo sub culture trends. Shit is LAME. Hopefully, sucking cock becomes all the rage (against the machine) so these idiots can all be exposed for the goofs that they are. Love me or hate me I have always been ME. Can these buffoons say the same? PS you may think Esoteric is whatever you think he is, but you cannot deny he took these fools out. Apparently right out of hip hop. Thank God.

Comment: I think when you've been in the game awhile you need to switch it up to appeal to the new heads that are getting into the shit, I'm an older Cat and I remember Cage back in the Strech & Bobbito Show, Fondle Em & Smut Peddler shit and now like he said he's getting exposed to all these rocker's and Emo heads and they're buying that shit. I guess to him that's progression. I don't like his new joints and I don't listen to that shit. The last thing I'm gonna do is rip him a new ass, cause a Mutha fucka gotta do what he feels he has to do to make a buck and get him laid.

Comment: I'm really starting to hate the word "progression" in the context of sometime hip-hop music. Take a look at the guys who ar REALLY on the next shit. el-p, dose one, busdriver, project blowed guys. you ever hear these guys use the word progressive? I haven't. It's become such a hollow term now because its used by every two bit hack who thinks original is better then dope. The ne shit a'nt shit if the product sucks... idiots. To refer to yourself as progressive is a rediculous cock stroke, usually done by guys like cage and sole who bring absolutely nothing dope to the table

Comment: Henchman said:"D Tension that is the biggest load of shite I have ever had the misfortune to sit wasting time reading through. Fuck me mate have you not got anything better to do than slag someone off just because you dont like it ? You just dont get it do you. Haters hating it just cracks me up. Dont hate another mans hustle."You are the one who doesn't get it. Just to give you some context, I did not post that comment here. Someone cut and pasted it from another site. It was posted at bostonrap.com when someome ASKED what Emo was and what is up with this Cage dude and this weird interview. A lot of the Bostonrap.com crowd had never heard of him/emo so they ASKED. I ANSWERED the question. I wasn't just saying it to hate nor did I just say it because I "don't like it". I was explaining what type of shit this dude is on. Emphasis on "shit". Let's face it, he's on some new shit, on some trendy, hipster bullshit that means nothing and will not last. He'll be doing whatever the pseudo underground rock scene is doing next. He's a follower. Can't wait for his big "I'm hip hop again" self reunion that he's bound to have. "Cage is BACK". yay.I wasn't JUST hating. And to be clear, the diffrence between JUST hating and me hating some of these Jux bozacks is that I've met the Jux dudes and they're tools IMO. It's not that I don't like the music, which I don't. (loved Company Flow but that's a long time ago) It's more personal than that. They've acted like assholes to me personally and they're phony. Two things I really do not like in a person. So if my opinion was shite to you, wake me up when I give a rats ass. Just take a moment to understand that a) there was some context to my comments that did not end up here and b) I have very good reasons for disliking this jack ass.This is hip hop son. Sometimes cats get dissed. If you don't like me, hey at least I'm being me. Cage is being Robert Smith. That ain't real. He's The Undertaker but this ain't wrestling, this is hip hop. I like mine real.

Comment: Cage basically thought he was black or related more to blacks in his early years and was acting like how he thought black men act like. So when he stopped using drugs he woke up and realized that he isn't black but he is a rapper which is largely a black artform but he realizes that he can still rap but stop being a black sterotype and still make music he likes and be his true self. Before he was just too drugged out and fucked up to realize that he should be true to himself and stop being something he's not and if that means changing his style and becoming "emo" then so be it and forget about all the people that hate him and are no longer fans of him for his realization and becoming his true self.

Comment: I'M NOT DEFENDING CAGE OR ATTACKING HIM. DUDE SAID WHAT HE FELT HE NEEDED TO SAY, AND GOOD FOR HIM IF HE FELT IT HELPED HIM ILLUSTRATE HIS POINT. IT'S JUST BAD TIMING ON HIS PART WITH THAT IMUS BULLSHIT, BUT I'M NOT DEFENDING IMUS EITHER. I BELIEVE IN SEMI-FREE SPEECH. THERE'S A TIME AND A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. PICK YOUR SPOTS WISELY. THAT BEING SAID, YOU HAVE TO GIVE A FUCK ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK WHEN YOU'RE IN THE POSITION HE'S IN. WHAT THE FUCK DOES IT MATTER IF YOU'RE ANY COLOR/RACE/CREED DOING THIS MUSIC. EVERYBODY HAS THEIR HAND IN IT, AND YOU SHOULD RESPECT EVERYONE FOR HAVING A COMMON GOAL, WHETHER THEY'RE GOOD OR TOTALLY SUCK. CAGE IS "EMO" NOW, ON THAT DEPRESSING SHIT, BUT FOR THE RECORD, ESOTERRIBLE AIN'T ANY BETTER. DUDE HAS THAT SAME OLD JAY-Z FLOW ON EVERYTHING HE DROPS NOW, AND HIS LAST ALBUM WAS COMPLETE TRASH. IN 3 MONTHS THAT DUDE'S GONNA PROBABLY TRY AND DO SNAP MUSIC, SINCE THE CLUB SHIT DIDN'T WORK. I THOUGHT EL-P'S ALBUM WAS DECENT AND ORIGINAL (IF THERE EVEN IS SUCH A THING AS ORIGINALITY ANYMORE.) AND ONE THING TO REALIZE WITH HIM: HIS SOUND NEVER CHANGED. HE ALWAYS COMES WITH DIFFERENT TOPICS, AND HE DOESN'T SIMPLIFY OR SUGARCOAT SHIT. I DON'T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU LIKE HIM OR NOT, YOU HAVE TO AT LEAST ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MUCH. AT THE END OF THE DAY, IF THE MUSIC IS DOPE, WHO GIVES A FUCK IF IT'S COMMERCIAL OR UNDERGROUND, RAP OR ROCK, OLD OR NEW. THERE'S GONNA BE NO DIFFERENCE IN A FEW MORE MONTHS. EVERYTHING IS MERGING. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, TAKE A LOOK AT THE CREDITS OF SOME OF THESE ALBUMS IN THE "UNDERGROUND" COMING OUT, AND CHECK FOR SOME PRODUCER NAMES. IT'S ALL ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAVE TO PUT UP. SO ALL Y'ALL CATS THAT ARE TALKIN' SHIT ABOUT WHAT AN ARTIST HAS TO SAY.....UNTIL HE'S THERE IN PERSON, TO ACTUALLY HEAR YOU SAY IT, YOUR OPINION WON'T MATTER. AND SPARE ME ON THE IRONY OF ME SAYING THAT IN A POST ON A MESSAGE BOARD. EVERYONE DESERVES EQUAL TIME.

Comment: None of you are wrong. That's the basis of Hip-Hop: Change...and opinion. Listen, I remember that melodically stimulating: Agent Orange also...but People are changing worldwide. Hip-Hop is changing in general. I love Polo, Bright colors, and heavy Tribe basslines...I've never necessarily been a fan of "Emo," but I dont think this is Emo...it's somebody being artistic. The only thing constant is change. How many of you cats listen to John Coltrane or Earth, Wind, and Fire. Are you vicariously living your life out through how another man changes... in his way of articulating himself? I am not casting stones, but stop being so shallow. If you listen to his delivery, content, and mode of expression, Cage is still severely poetic. Slightly deranged: yes. A little over the edge: yes. BUT...definitely one of the few cats holding hip hop down for our played out state of stagnate Artform.

Comment: This guy is a poser. This whole look and attitude is an image, it's very current and very Emo. Emo is short for emotional. It started as an offshoot of punk and like all good things (the fathers of emo are Fugazi) it got watered down and ruined by big labels. Emo music, which I am not a fan of, is emotional music with an almost goth look. It's a hybrid culture. Most of the songs are about how the guy can't seem to get the girl, the girls always lie and cheat on him, he doesn't understand them, etc. It's cynical music and at this point has very little to do with punk. Notice Cage said "the girls like it". Emo is mostly embraced by young girls who think the lyrics are sensitive and they feel bad for the "poor" band becase they're sensitive and have bad luck with girls. It's such a product it's not even funny. I have hosted many events for WFNX and the Emo shows are 75% young girls. Cage is going for that crowd. Atmosphere, who are a talented group (no not just because they're on my albums and no I am not Emo), created what is more or less Emo Hip Hop. I mean, they have album after album about the same girl and what a shitty girlfirend she was. College chicks worldwide are in love with Slug of Atmodphere. He's the official sex symbol of indie hip hop. He's made millions with that approach so God bless him. He's also honest while Cage is an actor. Emo bands include My Chemical Romance, Yellowcard, Say Anything and Fallout Boy. They all have the same formula: cynical and ironic lyrics to watered down punk music with a whiney singer. I mean these singers are really fucking whiney. If you've ever been somewhere and heard a rock record that sounded like Green Day with a bitch ass singer, thats's Emo. So...Cage is going for Emo. He's got the dark and mysterious (make up probably) eyes, the haircut, the attitude, the lyrics, everything. He's more Emo than Atmosphere in that Atmosphere doesn't look like an Emo rock band. This guy looks like he's the lead singer for My Chemical Romance. In short, Cage is a product. He's not real in any way. He used to be "crazy white guy hip hop man" with the drug, sex and gore lyrics. Now he's got the clothes and hair of an Emo boy. He's a phony. He's doing whatever is hot. A lot of hip hoppers can be accused of the same thing. Doing, dressing, acting like whatever is hot at the moment. I think that's lame too. But Cage has elevated it to new heigts of rediculousness. He's LAME. Funny how sampling is jacking other people's music but he only listens to old hip hop. Funny how he's got some modern roick bands on his album but he only listens to old rock. He's a fraud, always has been. He talked shit about Eso endlessly. Eso went there to NY to battle and Cage wouldn't do it. After that the whole Def Jux crew (except Lif and Ray Walls) went after Eso. Song after song after song against one indie rapper from Boston. Eso , one man, embarressed their whole crew song after song. It wasn't even close. He ripped them all. Can Ox even went so far as to not show up to a Boston show when that shit was going down. That whole crew is Emo at it's worst. They're all phony. Aesop Rock, Can Ox and the once promising El P can all eat a dick as far as I'm concerned.

Comment: i like how he sets up his huntingtonian dualism between "black" and "white" music as such. as if they are two mutually exclusive poles that must be actively segregated from each other. he unwittingly perpetuated the stereotypes he was criticizing by designating rap as black and rock as white. dumb.

Comment: Now what the fuck is going on. He changes his haircut and you fuckers start to hate him. Hahaha. What he says at the end of the interview is true. You fucking homos complain about his style!?! wtf. Write something about his music, whether you like it or not, but stop fronting about the way he dresses. you fucks. his music is dope and nothing else is important. From the point you start to say what a hip hopper has to look like, you totally fail to understand what hip hop is all about. It's not about how you look like, it's about your skills. So fuck them haters cage and continue to produce some quality music.
