E2W what’s up Riq Bubz how are you today?
Riq Bubz I’m good can’t complain. 10 toes up is always better than 10 down, ya feel mey!
E2W where are you from?
Riq Bubz Newark, N.J. “Brick City”
E2W Do you get a lot of love from artist out in N.J. such as from Redman, Joe Budden, Treach of Naughty By Nature etc.?
Riq Bubz I never met any of them. Although, I did open for Joe Budden at The Highline Ballroom in N.Y. last month. Redman used to hop out from time to time in the hood and say “what up!” to the homies and s**t. But, I do get a bunch of support from other local and underground artists like my n****s: Tsu’Surf and Shotgun Suge.
E2W I see you did the Breakfast Club interview. Were you nervous up there with Envy, Yee and Charlemagne?
Riq Bubz Nah I been in tighter situations than that coming from where I’m from *laugh*. The Breakfast Club is extended family at this point tho’. Ang, Envy, Charlamagne, they the homies. So, when I see them, I don’t even think of it as a nervous or work thing. They show me and my SRT10MG family a lot of love and we appreciate them for that.
E2W how did the feature with Waka Flocka come about?
Riq Bubz Some of my peoples knew his people’s, so we just reached out and made it happen.
E2W how did you feel about MTV interview on Hottest 16?
Riq Bubz It was a good look. Just another chance to display my skills.
E2W what next for you for summer of 2013?
Riq Bubz More touring around the U.S.. New mixtape, “Street Certified”
Dropping, and more videos and linking wit more artists.
E2W you got any majors lined up ready to sign you or you like the independent route?
Riq Bubz Not at this moment. We’re focused on doing it independently right now. A lot, of the footwork we out here doing, most labels don’t do for signed or established artist.
What my SRT family and me have, is extinct in the industry right now. We’re bringing back the love, unity and movement (aside from the music) that you used to see in the 90’s. We’re ringing bells without even really trying. Meaning, we don’t have any money backing us…this is all us.
So, if we get a label behind us just for that money back-up…ain’t no telling. But, where we from…we got it! SRT10MG, got it! We kicking doors in even if n****s ain’t answering.
