On a random and late July night, I was on the computer putting songs on my iPod. I randomly get a message on Twitter from Kid Hum saying that he wanted to be interviewed out of nowhere. At this point, I’m confused because we never talked about me interviewing him prior to that. Ten minutes after I got the request, I have my questions ready and the interview lasted for about an hour. Unfortunately, only 10% of the actual interview is at the bottom because this was a wild conversation.
The Colorado Rap Report‘s second compilation in the Songs of the Colorado Rap Report series features artists and groups like Whygee, 3 The Hardway, The Block Scholars and more. There is a mix of new and old songs present on this mixtape, however, this is a fine representation of Colorado’s musical talent.

Rock The Dub pulled off the inevitable and invited artists to go in over Kid Hum‘s debut, instrumental album, Fossil Fuel. On this EP, you will hear familiar voices such as Cyrano and Whygee, as well as first-timers (on this blog) like Sky 7th. Despite the minor delay of Offshore Drilling, everyone involved can finally breath, relax and reflect on their 5-star efforts.

This Friday, Kid Hum and Rock The Dub will release Offshore Drilling, where artists rap over beats from Kid Hum’s Fossil Fuel. This EP is only 3 tracks, but consider it as a sampler that will convince you to come back and download Offshore Drilling.

I’m glad that I got a chance to interview Cyrano because there are a couple of things that you and I wouldn’t have caught just by listening to his music. In this interview, he goes into detail about some of his past, present and future projects as well as gaining connections through websites, including It’s An Infinite Cycle.
Like I promised, I’ll share some of my stories.
A-Plus/Opio (Souls of Mischief)
On January 10, I went to an SOM show where I live and that’s where I first met Phalary (see her post here). There was a break in between performances and I walked over to the SOM merch table. I gave a fist bump to the guy behind the table. I barely noticed his face then, but I fist bumped A-Plus. By the time I see Souls of Mischief perform, I realize it was him. I felt a little dumb, but it was ok.
After the show, Opio comes off the stage and starts shaking everyone’s hand. I secretly thought about getting Phalary a video shout out, but my nerves got the best of me.
