B.G.: I started out when I was young in elementary school just playing around and banging on the desk and freestyling and rhyming for my homies from around the way. They were like “wow, he’s going off and spitting and all that.” With Big & Slim, since we are all from the same neighborhood, we knew each other since we were about 7 or 8 years old. That was before they started the label. The barber that would cut our hair knew that I could rap so he told them about me and they came around the hood and put me on the spot. They told me to kick something, so I kicked something and the rest is history.
WHO?MAG: This is now your third album on Koch under Chopper City Records. What are the advantages and disadvantages from going from a major like Universal to your own imprint?
WHO?MAG: Now that the Oxford Dictionary officially coins “Bling Bling” as a phrase, what is your take on this now being a common used term?
WHO?MAG: The new album contains cameos from a lot of Chopper City Recording artist. How do you determine who you will sign under your label?
WHO?MAG: If there is one thing you could change about the hip-hop game, what would that be?
