Damon Campbell Interviews Kool John

Originally intended for a HNHH release prior to unforeseen circumstances, I sat down with Kool John during the “Under the Influence of Music” tour stop at Detroit’s DTE Energy Music Theatre to discuss the HBK member’s origins in rap, former dance crew, Shmop Fest, and all things Bay Area — from the one-legged pigeon at the Bart station, to the Richmond Snowball, and DJ Gary’s involvement with a local spin-off of Girls Gone Wild.

Catch Kool John on the second leg of G-Eazy’s “Bay to the Universe” tour along with special guests Jay Ant and Kehlani, January 2 – February 4.

Damon Campbell Interviews Lecrae (2014)

On the heels of his new album Anomaly debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, coupled with a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” I caught up with Lecrae during his 27-city tour stop at The Fillmore in Detroit for our second interview to date.

While our first meeting sparked a heated religious debate among viewers in 2011 due in large part to a “Christian rapper,” as he’s often mislabeled (albeit not entirely without merit), relinquishing his thoughts on Tyler, the Creator and Odd Future, who at least at the time were considered by many conservatives to be satanic or devil-worshiping, I decided to take a lighter, more nostalgic approach this time around, with discussion topics ranging from a chance encounter with Dikembe Mutombo as a youngster, being introduced to hip-hop at a halfway house his mother was working at, and previously stocking shelves for a living — which may or may not play a role in the Grammy Award-winner keeping his accolades tucked away in his closet rather than out on the mantel.
