Speaker 1: What pisses me off the most lately has been bad drivers. I've developed road rage that I've never had. People are driving me absolutely insane on the roads. Not paying attention, and switching over and driving slow in the fast passing lanes and shit. Drives me crazy.
My worst habit is probably bitting my nails, picking my nose. I got quite a few of them. Spending money. Spending money is a horrible habit of mine.
I'd have to say, She-Hulk was pretty bad, back in the day. She-Hulk was bad as fuck. She might be too brolic, though, I don't like that Amazon shit. If a girl's over 5'7", I couldn't fuck with it. All the girls in the old heavy metal cartoon from the 70's. They're all bad in that shit.
Do I cook? Poorly, but yes I cook. My girlfriend probably is not thrilled with my cooking but I can cook some chicken and some bullshit. Here right now.
Speaker 3: So that's your best dish? Chicken?
Speaker 1: Probably, chicken-ish type things.
Speaker 3: Can you elaborate on the "type things"?
Speaker 1: Like vegetables. I've been trying to cook healthier and eat healthier lately. I definitely am doing a whole bunch of vegetable stuff and kale and shit I've never eaten before which I have to eat a lot of now.
No, it's gotta be on. I gotta have visual, I gotta see shit. I gotta see pussy, I gotta see titties, I gotta see ass. I have to see insertion and penetration and shit. It's very important to me. I'm a very visual person. I need to see the penis going in the vagina.
Oh, fuck. Probably taste. Because everything else would be fucking crazy. People always say oh if you're blind or deaf, those are horrible. Both of those are fucking terrible. So I'd have to say, fuck I don't care, I'll not taste anything as long as I live.
Speaker 3: What's the best thing-
Speaker 4: Shut up!
Speaker 1: Oh, no. I'm gonna change that to smell. Smell, fuck smell. Who really needs smell.
My crazy schedule, music, traveling, always being gone, studio all the time, excessively. That's it. I mean if you can survive that you're in there.
Fuck that! Shit, damn, that's a tough one. Something fucking crazy like lions. People don't really fuck with lions too much. Lions is pretty good, that's pretty much the top of everything.
Speaker 2: Rated Reese.
Pete Rock & CL Smooth
Producer Pete Rock (Peter Phillips) and rapper CL Smooth (Corey Penn) are a group from Mount Vernon, NY, known for their legendary use of jazz and soul samples mixed with pensive rhymes. They first met in the early ‘90s while attending Mount Vernon High, establishing themselves early on as a duo destined to make the hip-hop history books. Pete Rock was taken under the wing of DJ Marley Marl at New York City's WBLS, eventually earning his own airtime and catching the attention of Heavy D's DJ Eddie, who introduced the pair to various record labels in New York City. Following Pete Rock’s co-produced four tracks off Heavy D & the Boyz's sophomore album Big Tyme (1989), he and CL Smooth used that momentum to release their debut EP All Souled Out in 1991. From jump, the duo carved their own lane by juxtaposing Pete Rock's signature horn blares and renowned ear for obscure soul and jazz samples with CL Smooth's knack for waxing philosophical yet effortlessly profanity-free lyrical delivery. The duo's 1992 debut album, Mecca & the Soul Brother, gave the world their best-known single, "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)." Met with rave reviews, the project was praised as one of the greatest rap records of all time. Following critical acclaim, the pair scored placements on soundtracks for films Menace II Society, Who's the Man?, and Poetic Justice, as well as collaborated with Mary J. Blige for a remix of her track "Reminisce." In 1994, Pete Rock & CL Smooth reunited for The Main Ingredient, a project that would later become the legendary duo's last album together. After splitting in 1995, both artists went on to nurture solo careers and would later reconnect for occasional tour runs and public appearances. The year 2003 saw the release of their compilation record, Good Life: The Best of Pete Rock & CL Smooth, further fueling the demand for a proper reunion. In 2010, the death of hip-hop pioneer Guru acted as a catalyst for them to reconcile their creative differences in a new way, with the duo promising fans new music was in the works. The group promises a new project by the end of 2017.
Jedi Mind Tricks
Jedi Mind Tricks is a duo from Philadelphia, consisting of rapper Vinnie Paz and producer Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind, and at times, rapper Jus Allah. JMT has a devout underground following, and are best known for their imagery with superhero and mythological themes—combined with hardcore rap. The trio met in high school and decided to form a group, making their debut in 1996 with the Amber Probe EP, sans Allah, who had left for college. They followed up with their full-length debut the next year, The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological, And Electro-Magnetic Manipulation Of Human Consciousness. It was released under their own indie label, Superregular Recordings. Vinnie had previously birthed the idea to form a rotating super-group of rappers and named it the Army of the Pharaohs, and after JMT’s debut dropped, AofP put out their first release, The Five Perfect Exertions EP—featuring Virtuoso, 7L & Esoteric, Chief Kamachi, Bahamadia, and Vinnie. This project was then remixed and released as JMT’s second album, Violent by Design, sans Chief Kamachi's verse. It also welcomed Jus Allah back into the fold. Allah left the group after the release, and returned for their sixth studio album, A History of Violence. He left again in 2013. Stoupe also left the group in 2011, but returned in 2015. DJ Kwestion serves as the current tour DJ. To date, Jedi Mind Tricks has released nine studio albums (all independently) and have sold over 450,000 albums. Following a 2001 deal with indie label Babygrande that ended in 2010, JMT now releases all music through their own label, Enemy Soil.
