Let me introduce you to one of NJ finest : Mr Venomous2000 The Ultra Emcee.
Enjoy the interview and take some time to watch the videos .
I started, as cliche as it may sound, listening to classic R&B soul music and of course early 80's HipHop (RunDMC, Juice Crew, Rakim, BDP, Lyte). I never thought about doing the rhyming thing myself, i was more into learning other cats lyrics and reciting them like they were mine. Just started out as having fun. But something change when Wu came out. It was like an inspiration came over, i believe, a lot of people. I was one of those that decided to take up the Pen and see what "darts" i could start putting together. I use to kick freestyles and rhymes all through 7th and 8th grade, cyphering on corners, and hitting the notepads instead of hitting the books. I was never formally schooled in music, aside from playing the saxophone in early grade school. Other than that, it was the tape deck, vcr, and turntable that schooled me on the music scene.
What are your future project and what can we expect for 2011- 2012 ?
What about touring, do you plan to do a tour outside the states, or maybe even overseas ?
Who are your role model ?
Talk about your hometown? ( the hip hop scene, the girls, and the food. )
I can't stop eating that Chaufa de Vegetales (Peruvian rice & veggies) & my Domincan/Puerto Rican favorite Arroz, Bacalao, y Habechuela (Rice, Fish, Beans). Reminds me of home cooked meals!
Tell us about father hood?
That's been the most invigorating thing in my life so far. I'm realizing all the choices i make, good or bad, will effect my little one. So i try my best to think things out before making a decision.It motivates me even more because i want to provide something for my daughter that i wasn't able to have as a child. Its an everyday learning experience. You learn to listen, to be more decisive, to be more gentle, to be more respectful, to be more motivated to do things in general. Its tough as an artist because there's a lot of time spent outside the home, but i'd like to have my daughter on more songs and more shows that are family oriented. I WANT MORE KIDS…that's how fatherhood has been for me. 5
