In the eight or so years since appearing in The Source's "Unsigned Hype" feature right after signing to Aftermath, Carson, California's Bishop Lamont managed to build a bit of a name for himself. In the five years between his signing and his amicable departure from Dr. Dre's vaunted vanity imprint, he managed to record 700 songs, allegedly score features on Detox, become one of the many emcees to beef with The Game, and record material so extreme and political that Dre himself regards him as the only other emcee besides Eminem to make him "uncomfortable". On this week's edition of TheBeeShine, the major label refugee drops 15 minutes of no-nonsense real talk about what inspires him, his earliest hip-hop memories, what he learned from his Aftermath experience, the virtue of struggle, and more. TheBeeShine is a refreshingly unique endeavor, offering a more positive and introspective take on rap culture than the thirsty beef-mongering and glorified tabloid reporting that normally dominates web coverage. Whether obscure, well-known, profound or hilarious, TheBeeShine's features definitely have something for every sort of rap fan. Subscribe to TheBeeShine for more in-depth interviews with rap's best.
