  3. Interview With .:pain:.​


    Alright, tell us about yourself. What's the story behind .:pain:.?

    Well, the name kinda says it all, lol. Born in the projects to two alcoholics, father was abusive, had two older brothers that pretty much took out their frustrations on me. I pretty much got beat everyday till I was big enough to fight back. The city I'm in has the highest rate of drug abuse per-capita, not to mention it's a run down old abandoned industrial city with no jobs and nothing to do. So I sold drugs, got kicked outta high school, had my house raided, cops took my truck, spent a week in jail for it, then got sentenced to 3 years probation under the condition that I got back into school. Now I'm in school, made the dean's list every semester since, have a legitimate job and wonderful girlfriend. That's kinda it in a nutshell.

    A real rags to riches (relatively speaking), if you will, lol.

    What's something that's shaped your life out to the way it is today and how has that affected you?

    Goin' to jail really did a lot for me. It's weird because while I was in there, I was in processing the whole time, which is like being in ad-seg. While I was in there, a good friend of mine brought me some books, and one of them was on passive-aggressive behavior. It really struck a chord with me because I felt like I had been fucking up my life to spite my father, which is kinda like cuttin' off your nose to spite your face. Me fucking up my life in all those ways was just passive-aggressive behavior towards my father. Since I had that epiphany, I really did a 180 in the way I thought and acted, and I'm a much better person for it.

    What's the future got in store for you?

    I'm in a band with a good friend of mine, we both play guitar, we both write, and I sing and do the keys too. I also plan on recording a album/mixtape by the end of the summer, using a lot of the shit I wrote in this league and BW's. Gonna continue pursueing a bachelor's, then master's in psychology. Dependin' on how things go maybe a PHD. And bust my ass working the whole way through, lol.

    What got you to start listening to hip hop/rap?

    My oldest brother had a two tapes, a Naughty By Nature tape and a Gangstarr tape, and I used to bump the shit out of those. Mainly it was the music my brothers/friends listened to, so it grew on me.

    Who were some early favorites of yours?

    Jay-Z, Naughty By Nature, Gangstarr, Nas, Ja-Rule (fuck what you heard, Veni Veti Veci was sick), and DMX were the first tapes I bought. Hard Knock Life by Jay-Z was the first album I ever purchased, It Was Written was the first album I owned (kinda stole that one, lol).

    Who are your favorites now?

    Slug and Jay-Z will always be my all-time favorites. Right now, Blu, Cage, and Brother Ali all get heavy play.

    What are some differences between your favorites from then and now? Think the change is for the good?

    There isn't much of a difference except the shit I listen to now is more intellectually driven, if you will. I always dug the soul of hip-hop, shit that resonates deep inside when you listen, and that's the criteria I've used in the past and will always use in the future.

    Name the best album of all time, in your own opinion, without any explanation

    Lucy Ford EP's.

    Who do you feel is the most underrated rapper in the game today?

    Gotta be Beanie Sigel for me. The man consistantly destroys guest spots and makes other, well established rappers look like novices. He's inconsistant in some ways though, "Get your wig pushed back by the wig push backer," is probably the wackest thing I've ever heard, but his verse on You, Me, Him, and Her is one of the sickest verses I've ever heard.

    Now, you've been a strong competitor in both the old RSTL and the new RSTL. What are the perks of the old and the new?[/B]

    The old was cool because it was literary driven, which will help a person grow purely as writer. The downside of that is the fact song-writing didn't get the appreciation it deserved. Flip that around and you get the perks of the new RSTL, lol.

    What are some ideas you have that could possibly make the new RSTL fresher?

    Man, there's a reason I ain't a mod, lol. I suck at that kind of stuff.

    Which is your preference: Video Collabs or Topical Pieces?

    No preference at all actually. I dig 'em both equally, and I really enjoy doing both.

    Who are the top writers, in your opinion, that are currently in the league?
    You and Ghuttso have always been two of my favorites. GL? too.

    Out of the people that have recently signed in, quite a few are vets from the past who the newer heads may not know about. Who are a few vets that need to be looked out for that have recently signed in?

    Well Scatterboxx no-showed, lol. GL? will definitely do well, if not win a championship. Nom has the potential to beat anyone when he concentrates.

    Who would you like to battle most in the league?

    GL? and Nom. I haven't battled either in over a year.

    Name the sexiest celebrity alive. A pic or two wouldn't hurt to put in here for the reader's pleasure either, lol

    Eva Mendes

    ^I would do anything for one with that girl, lol.

    Let's end the interview on a quote. Give me a quote of your choice. Doesn't have to have any relevance to anything at all, just a quote of some sort.

    "All art is quite useless."
    -Oscar Wilde.

    Good luck the rest of the way through, bro.

    And to you as well...

    I just wrote the deepest, most profound, most philosophical piece I've ever written, and already posted. Probably one of my favorite verses ever.

    And I'm fuckin' terrified a lot of it is gonna fly right over people's heads...
