We are back to continue our video interview series with Taboo.  Here we are on question number four where Taboo goes in on the things that challenge him as an artist.   Enjoy, we are going to be completing this discourse  over the course of the next couple of weeks so enjoy.

Also enjoy this track from his Bookowski project!  We didn’t go into this particular project for the purposes of this interview but there is mad depth to be found there.

 

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: Escapism – ZoomOut pt1 (feat. JadeGritty)

Escapism

ZoomOutPt1 is just one of the many powerful sounds coming from Escapism’s (Taboo x Tab) new self-titled album that I believe is a must have.  The lyricism and the energy in the track makes the song feel like it is taking a casual ride in your brain while triggering those synapses.  It’s soulful intelligence forcing the listener into introspection.  Listen and be enlightened.  Then check this amazing album!

Single You Out: I.N.F. – Bad Blood (ft. Coal Cash x Taboo)

This track just goes! The sample that is used for this song is nothing short of brilliant. It turns out that it was a song used off of The Walking Dead by Allison Mosshart and flipped to perfection by producer Edd Bundy. And then you’ve got guest bars from Coal Cash and Taboo. Ill bars. Ill production. And that can be said for the entirety of I.N.F.’s most recent album, Bourbon Barrel Bordello.

Check this project out. I am a fan!
