My Hip-hop Style is So Low-key, it Could Better be Described as Folk Music
by Kevin Wilder
Back in March, I was all set to interview GZA from The Wu-Tang Clan. He was playing at Zydeco, and my friend Joshua Shoemaker was taking some photographs of him. Unfortunately, some scheduling conflicts kept the interview from ever happening, though Joshua did nab some sweet images of GZA immediately before he went onstage. (Above image comes courtesy of Joshua.)
My buddy Chris Staples of lesser-known Twothirtyeight and Discover America superstardom also happened to be playing in Birmingham that night. He was on tour with Andy Shauf, another awesome singer-songwriter, and as the night progressed they both ended up crashing in my less-than-comfortable living room. Since I already had a list of questions printed out for GZA, at some point Chris suggested we do the interview with him instead. We didn’t deviate from the questions, and the results were pretty hilarious.
