My interview with Russia's version of MTV. Lovin' this  Reply with quote  



My interview starts at the 8:50 mark.

From what I've been told, this is Russia's version of MTV. Although even old school MTV didn't have long news segments. Whatever the case, I'm (strange) famous there! Haha. This interview was filmed at my Moscow show last weekend and it tickles my francy. Never expected it to make its way on youtube.

You can't really hear the questions or my answers all the much (due to the translation) but I'm impressed that they included the very last question which was about "black" people making mainstream hiphop. The interviewer was asking me what I thought about black rappers being responsible for bad mainstream rap. As you may imagine, that was not an easy thing for me to correct him on while giving an answer that I thought was informative without being confrontational. I'd chalk this up to cultural awkwardness, however I experienced a similar dilemma with a Canadian TV station recently. At least Russia aired my response.

By the way, Russia was awesome. I had to jump through some hoops of fire in order to get there, but I really enjoyed myself.

If this comment was made by anyone else I would have taken it as sarcasm. But since it was you, thanks.
