What do you think happens to you when you die? Do you have an idea of what "the afterlife" is going to be like?
i dont know. how could anyone? i do think though that it has more to do with us returning to the energy we came from.
we are all made out of starz

I have to ask: why the inclusion of the freshly born baby/vagina in the cd booklet? I may be mentally scarred... but that's life. LITERALLY.

Your new album (and entire body of work) is top notch as always, my man.
thanks.

all the pics are from my last two years for the most part.
that baby is my baby. i took that pic myself. its for sure brutal.

What inspired the change in direction for the production on this album?
i changed the vibe beat wise becuase i was enjoying more electro. thats most of it.
i love to change the sound up every record. this one is dancy because i been dancing. for real. the next one will sound different again if i do my job right.

Thanks for the response. My aunt just underwent heart surgery, and while recovering they found that she has a blood clot, so things aren't looking so great. Facing her mortality is fucking with me. i hope you have a better outcome. Really, i do.
wow. i hope the best for you and your family.

Do you think this new slew of "hip hop artists" such as Young Dro, Riff Raff, Lil B and others are bringing down the integrity of hip hop/rap music?
no. i think at this point all genres of music have the hi and lower brow.
there has never been mainstream music that has all of the things i need in my jams.
but thats okay. thats how we found our favorites in the first place. searching hard to find "our" shit in all the garbage makes 'our shit' better to us. right? thats me any way

What was the hardest thing to do while recording/writing this album?
for me, the hardest part is just letting the songs be songs.
i always want the shit to be the end all be best ever.
that is NEVER how it works. its just gotta get done.
it takes me forever to call it done.

Favorite part of working with Andrew Dawson? What would you say his biggest influence on the record was?

Fantastic job with WDELH, Stef. Seriously
andrew was amazing as a producer. he was central in helping call songs done when they were.

he made it sound perfect

How'd the pre-order stuff with Crimethinc. come up?
ive been reading crimethic for a very long time. expect resistance and work were huge in the writing of this record. i just reached out to them to spread the word. they thankfully were in.

Stef, if I may,

You're one of main reasons I got into hip-hop. Never Better is by far my favorite hip-hop album and one of the most influential albums of my college years. WDELH has definitely been on heavy rotation since I've been able to hear it.

I was curious, though, about the difference in tone between the older albums and WDELH. Previously, your albums were very personal and almost... emotional, I guess? WDELH is much more conceptual and deals with bigger issues in society. Why the change? Did something happen in the past couple years that pushed these themes to the forefront?

I really appreciate you doing this, man. You're one of my musical heroes.

lots happened. a lot of us worked hard to get obama in office. only to feel fucked over by the civil liberties tossed away by the admin.

i dont know. its hard to write about my feelings about much else from how this world is.

that said, under the rarrr its still a pretty personal record, just different. i hope i can grow through everything i make.

Do you start with percussion for most songs and build from there? I'm sure it varies for each song but I've always been curious about your writing process.
i almost always start with drums
