Call and Response - Justis Hype

1. MSG: What is your official title at Wu-Tang Management?
JH: Promotions manager and program director for wu tang radio, general promotions... mannnnnnnn I'm CEO of Getting the word out! all that good shit!

 2. MSG: The 36 Chambers School Of Emceeing is underway, what is your involvement with the competition?
JH: I'm more-so a supporter. I'm not really hands on with all issues but I'm there if the team needs me, I set up chairs up if they need me! I'm there for the camp but the day to day administrative work, I'm not associated with that directly. I am however hands on with the worldwide DJ Coalition.
So far we're @ least 400 DJs Deep, over 39 states, we attacking all countries from the inside out! I'm really excited about that. We got em from micro to macro levels, internet to XM and beyond.

3: MSG: The music climate, industry and technology has evolved since Deep Space 9 ( the Original Generals ) entered the arena, what expectations do you have for the new class of Shaolin Pupils?
JH: My expectations is for them to do exactly what the school is designed for. Add on to this legacy. Its a quite unique situation compared to how the generals came through. There are so many techniques for promotion and overall support for artists that are here now that haven't been fully recognized. I feel the new students will definitely capitalize without conforming.
I personally look for artists that will be also business savvy, not just artists. They have to bring something new to the table, we are evolved so our ideas have to.

4. MSG: What's the most fulfilling part of your job,career thus far?
JH: Imma say this, its really a tie. 1)  being a Dj. Being able to control the crowd, play WHAT I want WHEN I wanted and 2) seeing a artist I work with evolve n get a deal signed...
watching my fruit grow, to witness one grow from a seed and form his own tree. 
 That's the circle of life, I ain't lyin' I'm a king!

5. MSG: O.D.B. is no longer here with us, describe him to me in ONE word
JH: Realistic!


6: MSG: Liquid Swords or Cuban Linx?
JH: That's like two different books. One more-so takes me through all the street levels and one digs a lot deeper on a whole different level so my answer would really depend on my state of mind at the time. Ask me Monday i'd say Cuban Linx, on Thursday i'd say Liquid Swords   

7:MSG: There's a glass of wine on the table, is it red or white?
JH: White!, it's transparent so I can see through it...
