Recently we caught up with Sean Price at a Converse sponsored show to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. He talks about giving and receiving for the community, the back-story behind his fan favorite “Onion Head”, how great his new album is – especially for his manager – and much more.

About the album:
An Ugly Hero is considered a myth. Growing up, the heroes we saw in cartoons and movies were perfectly chiseled, intelligent, and had senses none of us possess. An UGLY HERO is the everyday blue collar individual that makes the world go ’round. These are the heroes that work hard all day, everyday to help ensure that the lives around them are taken care of, and do it all without recognition. They wear themselves into the ground and sacrifice vanity for family.
Just Blaze and Young Guru sit down for an exclusive conversation on Hard Knock TV. The interview starts of with Young Guru asking Just Blaze about his new song Higher and about making transition from Hip Hop into EDM. Just Blaze says that he has always made electronic beats but that he didn’t always have a place to release those beats which were often ahead of their times. Now that the genre lines are so blurred it is seen as more acceptable to listen to everything. As the conversation continues Just Blaze says that now he is “comfortable doing whatever it is I want…I’m comfortable playing what I want, I’m comfortable wearing what I want and just being me as an individual…not that I wasn’t comfortable with who I am but I was definitely doing a keeping up with the Jones kind of thing…I had to have a fresher jersey than Dame but meanwhile Dame was getting them for free from Mitchell & Ness cause he is Dame Dash and I had to pay $500 for it and I had to this every day for years straight…”
808s, heartbreak and Prince stories with the man called Egyptian Lover at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York.
Egyptian Lover is a legend in certain circles but a mystery to most, an artist who was in deep with most of the west coast hip hop scene before the gangsta sound came along. Born Greg Broussard, Egyptian Lover was a rapper, DJ, and producer who was hugely influenced by the New York electro scene, as well as by the electro-funk of Zapp. Although he began associating with Uncle Jamm’s Army and Radio Crew, it was as a solo artist that he made his impact. “Egypt Egypt” (1984) was an LA anthem and his On the Nile was one of the first hip hop albums released on the left coast.
