INTERVIEW: Young Chris

In addition to my regular gig at WRGW Radio and the new site launching next month, I'll also be contributing interviews for, the home of everything Wale and more. What a perfect time to interview Young Chris, who just put out two new tracks with Wale. Here's a brief preview, but click the link for the full thing.

Let’s briefly discuss the old Roc-A-Fella days. A few months ago, I was told a hilarious story regarding Beanie Sigel and how he used to surprise others in the Roc-A-Fella office by punching them in the chest as they rounded the corner. Can you elaborate on that at all? 

Of course, see sometimes you were getting punched in your mouth or in your chest because people play with you, so you’ve got to show them that you’re still from the streets. They don’t know we’re starving out here; it’s real out here. I’m always going to stay in touch with the hood, but I don’t know if some people forget where they come from when they get to a certain status or what. Everybody talks like it’s family but they don’t really reach back. A dude’s adrenaline will be pumping and you get to the point where you just want to do something to one another just to show them it ain’t a game, it’s real out here. I get locked up for a little 24 hours and come home to punch you in your mouth. You’ve got to let people know it’s real because they play with your money, play with your records; [the label] is holding my record back right now!
