There’s a dope interview with Kidz In The Hall over at the XXL site. They discuss, among other things, their Duck Down debut as well as the split with Rawkus Records – their previous recording home.
Naledge: Let me break it down as far it could ever be broken. For those people that say that “Driving Down the Block” is different from School Was My Hustle, they’re not really listening to School Was My Hustle because I got records like “Go Ill” describing my complete life. I got songs like “Bros, Hoes and Liquor” that have been all over the mixtape circuit and in these records I describe my life coming up, and at no point in time have I ever said, “Yo, I’ve never wanted a nice car or I’ve never chased after women.” All of these things I talk about in the record if you listen to it, lyrically, you can see it’s not a departure from School Was My Hustle. I think what people are getting twisted is that it has the heavy 808, the interpolation of OutKast. I think the beat has people confused. I don’t think they realize that School Was My Hustle was made in 2004, 2005 and it’s now 2008. Nothing stays the same.
