edog Edo. G Talks Guru, DJ Premier, A Face In The Crowd & Boston Hip Hop History

The Boston O.G. discusses with HipHopDX his impressive new solo effort, sonic reunion with DJ Premier and his memories of when Gang Starr first started.

If you were not aware of his duo disc with Masta Ace, 2009’s Arts & Entertainment, or unfortunately don’t recall his last solo offering from seven years ago: the Pete Rock-helmed My Own Worst Enemy, the name Edo. G surely still sounds familiar, but you probably can’t place a face to that name.

So amongst the bombardment of new faces flashing at all of us daily via blogs and websites hyping up amateurs with no accomplishments, one of the first prominent emcees to emerge from Boston is looking to reintroduce himself with his aptly-titled new album, A Face in the Crowd (due May 17th from Traffic Entertainment).

The most thorough album of Edo’s career is dropping exactly 20 years after his first full-length, Life Of a Kid in the Ghetto, which spawned the socially conscious, saxophone-sampling smashes “I Got To Have It” and “Be A Father To Your Child.”

Two decades after his face was first seen by the masses, the Roxbury rhymer chopped it up with HipHopDX about both his past and present, what it’s like to actually have songs that have stood the test of time, how DJ Premier worked for him in record time, and what it was like that time he spent two weeks with Guru three thousand miles away from their native New England.

Go here to read the interview.
