interview with Spanish website, Artform, 11/13/02  Reply with quote  

-First of all, for people that don´t know you, how would you introduce yourself?

Hi...my name is Frank. I haven't shit in 3 days and my breath stinks because of it.

-You´ve been rapping for a long time and you´re a star in the underground; How is it possible that your first "official" lp was "Personal Journals"?

I've been waiting for the right time to make a commercial release. I use guerilla tactics for the most part, so after generating enough of a buzz off of live shows, battles, poetry slams and independent releases I figured it was time for an album to be released on a major label. I knew it would sell well once I secured a loyal following, which is what makes all this dirty work worth it.


-I read that you aren´t going to do big battles anymore; is this true? Why?

I just don't get excited by them anymore. That doesn't mean I won't do them, but I certainly don't think they are worth much beyond cheap promotion. Battles can be fun and interesting, but these large contrived battles have gone overboard with nonsense. Politics and faggot-talk.


-Why did you choose Anticon to release "Personal Journals"

They offered, and they had the ability to get my album to a purchasing public. Beyond that, they are a collective of people whose art and company I enjoy.


-Which 2002 lps would you recomend?

Fantastic Damage, Themselves, Tom Waits' "Alice", Square, Movies for the Blind, and Vincent Gallo's "When."

-You´ve already been performing in Europe. Have you thinked in coming to Spain?

-Which is the song you´re most proud of?

A new one I just wrote named "Cure."

-When will we be able to enjoy your next projects, the Non-prophets lp and the AOI lp?

The Non-Prophets LP is currently being recorded and my best guess is that it will be out in 6 months. We will wrap up the recording and mixing in Jan before my tour. Then we have to figure out the artwork and label stuff. There will not be an AOI album, but I might record a full live album featuring some of the unreleased AOI tracks.


-Which artist would you choose to make a colaboration with?

Bob Dylan

-Anything more to say to people in Spain?

Please don't make me feel fatter and uglier than you probably will.

-Which is your favorite hip hop lp?

It Takes a Nation of Millions by Public Enemy

...classic answers. It seems as though all they were doing is asking questions and not listening to your answers to form new questions...must have been exciting!

A follow-up question that I wish had been asked:

Is "Cure" going to be on the Non Prophets album?

Please answer that one.
