Spent much of my morning being interviewed by Josh Rushing of Al Jazeera for a forthcoming newsmagazine piece. I won't step on Josh's thunder, but it's very Danger Roomy. More information as we get closer to the piece coming out, presuming my yammering makes the final cut. I left very impressed with his curiosity, sophistication and interviewing style. Also we talked off-camera nerdily about e-readers and tablets. Anyway.
Also: so one of Lil Wayne's lines in the (very good so far on first listen) Carter IV record is a Bushwick Bill reference, which got me reminiscing. Anyone remember the BoxTalks interviews that The Box used to run during the mid-90s? You remember the Box, I trust:
Anyway, The Box ran a promo for a post-Geto Boys interview with Bill, which cold-bloodedly began (cue white-man-announcer voice), "Bushwick Bill is taking no shorts." If anyone has a copy of that out there in the internet world, say something in comments.
