[Podcast] The Come Up Show Presents- Feel Good Music (Dec 14, 2013)

This has to be one of the highlights of the year for The Come Up Show Radio, as we had four interviews scheduled in one episode. We started off the interview with JR Fillion and Jux Cain talking about their new EP Story Up Bud, Jux Cain shared what artists should keep in mind in their live performance and the boys blessed the mic with a live performance. The Most High came through to promote their EP which was a big hit on the site, Bill Beamin and Shaddeh ended off the interview with a performance/freestyle. Because of the inclement weather JD Era called in for his interview from the 401 and he let us world premiere his latest song “Mary”.

One of the most excited guests we’ve ever had so far on the radio show had to be Fredricks Reginald, since it was his first radio interview he introduced himself to the world and we premiered “Money Ting” from his upcoming project Nappy Headed. Every guest did a live performance/freestyle on the air to showcase their lyrical ability and J.R., Colton, and yours truly had a blast hosting the show. You can listen to the full podcast below and view the tracklist we also had a video broadcast of the show that is archived for your viewing pleasure. Let me know what you think of the show and who you favourite interview and performance was!

[Interview] Sese talks Sayzor Ramone EP and Live In Concert Tour

The Live In Concert tour featuring Luu Breeze, Sese, G Milla, and Robb winds down this Friday November 29th at The APK in London, On. The openers are Frank Dukez and Jay Downz tickets are only $10 bucks at the door. Sese called in on The Come Up Show Radio this past Saturday to talk about his upcoming EP Sayzor Ramone which is due to release on December 3rd.

Sese channelling over the top charisma, brash lady’s man bravado and technical skills to put him a cut above the rest comes as second nature. The parallels between he and his favourite wrestler the WWF’s Rayzor Ramone character are endless on his new 8-Track offering aptly-titled, “Sayzor Ramone.”

If you don’t understand why Sese titled his EP after a WWF wrestler you definitely want to listen in to our interview and find out how he made the connection to his favourite wrestler.

“So sick of being lyrical, on the earth where they only want material, they don’t listen to a word that you say when you try to be original.” Sese- Fear Me 

That is the reality Sese was facing after the release of his YFRWN series, since they were dark and aggressive he felt pressure to make radio singles to appeal to clubs and women but Sese he remained to stay true to himself, “I’m not changing myself to make you a fan, at the end of the day you are going to let the core fans down…..I just feel comfortable where I can do what I want to do and the fans are embracing it”.

Sese also defined selling out, “at the end of the day you don’t have to get signed or get paid to sell out, you just have to stop doing what you want to do and start doing what THEY are telling you to do”. Last but not least Sese talked about his live performance, the energy, his set, “I rap until my face goes red and I want to pass out” and the success with his merchandise and how great it has been to brand himself.

Check this out and more in our interview with Sese and I hope to see you at The APK concert this Friday. RSVP on facebook and as a bonus enter our contest below for your chance to win free passes.

[Audio] Locksmith Interview on The Come Up Show Radio

This is the most fun I’ve ever had as an artist because I’m making music the way I want to make it. Locksmith

We’re really excited to bring you our interview with Locksmith on The Come Up Show Radio. This past Saturday we chopped it up with the Richmond, California artist for almost 40 minutes live on our radio show via phone, he just released his album The Green Box download that album right now if you haven’t yet! The interview is conducted by yours truly, co-hosts M-Bomb and J.R. stopped by halfway during the interview. I learned a lot about Locksmith in this interview, we first started by asking Locksmith what he meant by the lyrics in the song Everything.

And this is not a fucking album. This is a byproduct of slided projects and 5 years of niggas doubting me

Locksmith answer naturally led to sharing his history as a musician starting off in a group, where he had a lot of commercial success around the bay area hypy movement, since he didn’t see himself fit in that, he fell back purposely and started the solo route. Locksmith shared what that path was like including the success as battle rapper. Something you may not know Locksmith doesn’t drink or smoke he shares with us why made that lifestyle choice and the experiences that made him to come to that decision. Other topics we touched on are Locksmith influences such as his older sister who also rapped, his cultural background as a half African American and Iranian, and the process of putting together the album The Green Box. Listen to this and SO MUCH MORE in our interview with Locksmith on The Come Up Show Radio. Tell me what you think of our interview and let me know if you learned anything new that you didn’t know before, I know I did.
