Interview Series: Taboo – Question 1

Bad_Karma_0258

We here are Hip Hop Dependency are really excited to bring you our first interview feature in years!  And this really came to fruition out of true admiration for a man and his craft.  Taboo has been one of the most creative rhyme writers over the course of the last few years.   His music only gets better with time.  His concepts and lyricism vary in range but ultimately are consistent in artistry and quality.

We really wanted to take the time to showcase and perhaps introduce Taboo to our readership in a way that provided depth.  The man took the time to video his responses to our questions, giving this series a depth we hadn’t seen before.  I really hope that you all will take the time to watch this series, so that you too can appreciate his unique and talented contribution to hip hop.  Every day, for the next ten days we will be delivering his answers to our questions and showcasing some of our favorite music from him.

Single You Out: Double Negative

Double Negative dropped this album, Krackatoa, not that long ago and it’s important that you give this album a chance. It’s incredibly ill. As a matter of fact, it could be my favorite from this year, at this point. The production is down right sinister and the emcees consistently deliver dense lyrics with tight interwove wordplay.

The Medicine Doesn’t Work Here, is an eery track that addresses the ills of society that are torn beyond repair. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
