Above The Law grace us with their time and deliver an interview of classic proportions. Cold 187 and KMG take us on a candid journey through their career, citing the realities, the pains but most importantly – the reasons why they single-handedly changed the soundscape of westcoast music. They offer raw accounts of such sensitive topics as the passing of Eazy E, Suge Knight, Dr Dre, ‘The Chronic’ and of course their brand new album, set for release this summer. These guys are written in the history books of hip hop but only get a paragraph when they deserve their own page – hopefully this interview will help to increase people’s awareness.
