It's been two years since we talked with Dungeon Masta the last time. A lot of things happened or not happened. He formed a new group, he released a new solo album and he is still working on several projects. But the long awaited 'Morbid Society 2' album is still stashed. A lot of things that wants to get cleared , but we talked about everything and also the Future Chamber situation. So show some respect for one of Brooklyn's finest.
Nice that you called me again to talk with you about your new album and your sideprojects. Much happened during the last year. You also signed at Future Chamber and you started some projects. So don’t waste time and let us start immediately.
You announced a new album, so what’s the name of it and when it will be released?
Yeah I did, now that is out for da people. Da name of it is called “wishful thinking”. It has been released on www.chambermusik.com
What can we expect from it? Will there be also some artists from the Brooklyn Zu surrounding again?
As always my family got my back just like I got theirs. Check da track list it’s hard, plus I got new talent on it too
On the last album you do the most of the beats by yourself. How does you handle that this time and can you tell us about how you start your productions and which equipement do you prefer?
Yeah da last album ( project oblivion ) is my baby. Since then I went thru legal problems. So da equipment had to go. So I could bail out and I still got violated by da powers that be. This time I handles tracks differently, cause now I’m on artist mode. There is a lot of hot talented producers out there, so you know I have to make sure they get their just due too. I started my productions in '92 when I was in atlantic city with my peoples ( L.T.Z ). When I came back to Brooklyn and got back with dirty, I really started taking it to a another level with my craft entering portals and nuts.
Buddha Monk produced some stuff and had a featurepart on your last one. You where in countermove to this on some of his cd’s. Will there come more? I find that the chemistry is right.
No doubt, thankz Buddha Monk. Do da dam thing in everything he do of course that will be more collabs. That’s my brotha. I’m there when he holla and vica versa.
You got your label (Sohlo Pro Records), you been down with Myjestik Ent. and you also signed to Popa Wu/Future Chamber now. Can you please declare how this all functions or rather which label belongs to which tasks for you.
To get it broken down, Myjestik Ent. is my management it has been for 9 years. Sohlo-pro records is my label and we have a couple of artist coming out real soon. Sohlo pro has joined forces with Myjestik Ent. now to bring forth some nuts.
I’m not signed to Popa Wu / Future Chamber we all signed to da vision for da tenth chamber project. I’m with Popa Wu on everything he do with his label. What Future Chamber do, is what Future Chamber do.
Morbid Society 2 has to come out this summer, but your computer gets broke and so the release date was pushed back. Can you tell your fans, who just waiting for it, what happened and when can we expect it now?
I had problems with upgrading my system, but I didn’t lose any songs. Plus to many people sent me songs on da raven, so I had to pull da project till I get da right elements for dis project. Cause it is going in all da edgar allen poe museums and other venues. So this has to be done in a certain way. Da details is on my myspace page.
How does the Lineup looks like this time, you also appealed for the participation again? Does this mean that there will be new artists only or are some old artists also on it?
All I got to say is, that da line up is sick.
Is there actually, already a steady core with Morbid Society now or is that all in a flying change? If yes, can u list this guys for us that we become an overview?
Morbid Society is a strong fam, but to get an clear cut of da situation, peep da 'lost warriors' track on 'wishful thinking' and everybody I work with is part of Morbid Society.
Also you wanted that all the tracks on Morbid Society 2 has something to do with Edgar Allen Poe. That fits perfect, because he was it who established the horrorgenre. How does you get this idea and how was the resonance on this?
That was my managers Ruishella's idea and it fit with what we do. So we ran with it, so we shall see what pop off.
Besides the horrorgenre he also established the crime literature and the science fiction genre. Does that made no differenz what they rapped about, or should it be more the horror way?
Not at all. As long as they keep with da concept, I’m good with it.
Did you already read some of his books and are they an inspiration for your lyrics?
Yeah he has a lot of influence on what I do, but my lyrics come from da pain. Feel me?
Back to topic. The one who served the best track should become a record deal on your label. Is he already ascertained and what is his name?
Not yet fam, it’s an process,
Give us some more infos about your label generally. Since when does it exist, who’s on it an what can we expect from it?
Da label started when I put out 'project oblivion'. Why not be first on my label at da time? Thanks to G-Clef and Buddha Monk for that big time. One of da artist on my label is G-Tee Shotta. Look out for his album “ It's not a game”. It’s about to go down fam.
I heard he is on Protect Ya Neck Records and now a Dirty Clansmen as well. when u decided to bring him to your group. How can we imagine this situation between the labels?
G-Tee Shotta is one of da secret squirrelz of Dirty Clanzmen. We linked up a couple of months ago, just when i decided to start Dirty Clanzmen and he been down with PYN just as long as i been with da Wu and that's yearz. So it was natural that we come together with him. PYN is still good, cause it unites our family even more. Feel me?
Which is your part on Future Chamber and how did you connect with them?
My part with Future Chamber is very little. We did an project for da Popa Wu album that’s done now. I’m doing business for my label and artist that are with me including myself.
What can u say about this Future Chamber disaster?
Da Future Chamber thing is not a dsaster, it is about knowing your place. Man there was alot of dumb nuts between Budd and DLAH to where it had got people involved with nuts that don't need to be, but when people bring other people names into nuts mine you these niggaz is not even on like that to even pull that nuts off. The whole thing is this, when generals give orders and you don't comply. Guees what you get, your ass spanked.
Simple as that. Me or any other general got no time for da dumb nuts. Too much bread is involve, but don't get it twisted, we love to shut nuts down. If da order was giving to leave nuts alone, that is what you f**king do. No questions asked and until that nuts is taking down from both partys. Da darts shall be throwed. They are babies and babies get there ass spanked, too easy.
Dirty Clanzmen don't give a nuts about that situation. We here and hungry as f**k.
Babyface Fensta is on the same label (Myjestik Ent.) like you, is there any chance to hear some stuff together, or are you not so close to him? Since now there is no track from you at least.
Me and Fensta is mad close, like I said that my family. He is on da dam girl track with Buddha Monk , Q-Plex and myself and there will be more soon.
You wrote on your myspace site that you where also involved in other groups, like L.T.Z. (Loonie Tunz) and Da Kindred (aka Morbid Legacy). Which roles did you take up on them?
L.T.Z and Da Kindred I play a general role in both. I help form both clikz. L.T.Z is formed in Atlantic city and Da Kindred is formed in Brooklyn and both is still active. My partner Murda Man is now Gorrealah witch. Mr Hookz is still holding down Da Kindred.
You also said that you got more sideprojects besides Morbid Society. First there were Cementary Row and then the Dirty Clansmen. To judge by name these also come from the Horrorcore corner again, or? Please tell us something about this two projects.
Cementary Row is still in development. As for Dirty Clanzmen, we are working on da album. It will be called 'Da Radeemorz'. It’s an lyrical roller coaster waiting to happen. It will be released on Chambermusik soon.
Is there something available from this groups/projects that we can buy or rather hear, or may we be curious a little bit?
www.myspace.com/dirtyclanzmen or www.myspace.com/sohloprorecordz
How did u and Struxx Denali come together to form the Dirty Clanzmen?
Me and Struxx got together thru my manager Ruishella. She called me to come down to Maryland. So as soon as i got off da bus, she take me to Struxx's house and we just laid it down. He got peoples he helped get da 'Wishful Thinking' album together too.
Is the Morbid Society over now?
Morbid Society is not over, not by a long shot.
We talked shortly about your homie 60sec Assassin the last time. Can u tell us something new about him, because we already get no musical sign of life from him. The only thing I saw was some live perfomance snippets on youtube.
60 got projectz out da ass fam. He’s doing his thang. You will definitely hear from him soon!
A few weeks ago there was the 4th annual of ODB’s dead. Where there any concerts to honour him and don’t you have any interest to do a tribute song for him?
Well 'Da Winta' off da 'Wishful Thinking' album is one of da tribute songs I have done for Dirt. Plus he is da reason I formed Dirty Clanzmen. To keep his legacy going. Feel me?
Before the last Clan album was coming out, there where some differences between the Clansmen. Ghost insults RZA because he get less money and Rae said that the album is digusting. Y-Kim also mentioned negativity about RZA. OK Popa Wu tried to get it right in the last interview on Chambermusik, but… Can you tell us something about that or rather what is your sight on this?
Here it is. This is not da first or da last we are going to hear nuts between a and b, c and d. This is my thing. What ever they go thru at end of da day, that's family and like family, of course there is going to be da bullnuts from time to time. They will work it out
You got a black President in the United States now. What is your point of view on this? Are you political?
We got a black president finally. I just want to see how far will this go. It should be interesting.
How does the future look like for Dungeon Masta? What can we expect after your new album and Morbid Society 2?
Da future is, what Dungeon Masta make it. Which will be very hopeful and full promise for me and my peoples. Da next Morbid album will be ready by da spring, for da summer.
Like every last question, do you wanna say something special to our readers? Otherwise I wish you a lot of success for your other activities and up to next sometimes.
