Eagle Nebs + Jay Electronica
So, I go on assignment for CentricTV to interview Jay Electronica. On my way there, I get HELLA lost...I'm strolling through the Red Hook projects with my full paycheck, that I had just cashed (super smart, I know), cats are looking at me like "I know she ain't from here..." and i'm thinking to myself that I just want to go home. Forget it all...but you know, Nebs ain't never been a quitter, so I keep trucking and I finally get there! I'm drenched in sweat and rain and hop right into the interview.
It went pretty well. I've gotta say, Mr. Elec is waaaaaay more approachable and kind than a lot of rappers, new or legendary that I have met in the last few years. And he takes this personanble approach to whole new levels 1. he give's his BBM out on Twitter (even I am not willing to do that) and 2. At all his shows, he gives a few emcees a chance to share the stage with them!
So, he calls out to the crowd "Where the Emcees At?" Now you know, I wasn't trying to go up there at first, but everyone around me starts pointing at me saying "Her, Her! Get Nebs up there!" So before I can decide, the stage manager is escorting me on stage. Then, something magical happened. Watch for yourself!
