Interview was done 11/12/14

Questions Asked By: P-Rice

P-Rice: For those who may not know exactly who you are, give a quick introduction of yourself.

JKenny: I’m 1/2 of “Ugly as Sin” a new hip-hop group out of the east coast, myself being from Nova Scotia and Axe ruler originally being from Prince Edward Island.

P-Rice: At what age did you get involved with hip-hop music?

JKenny: . I first started getting into hip-hop when I was 10, I believe the first thing I ever heard to really get me into it was the song “Right Now” by John Cena while I was watching Monday Night Raw hahahaha. I was such a 50 cent fan back then, before I really was interested in wordplay and hearing something really intricate and intelligent, I used to love things like “young joc” and “rich boy”, not the proudest moments of my life, but that’s what got me into what I love now.

P-Rice: Who are some of your inspirations/influences?

JKenny: I would say my biggest inspiration when I was growing up was Classified, not that he’s my favorite rapper in anyway, or even near my top 30, but for someone to be coming from Nova Scotia, and a place like Enfield at that, just a small stick town, really made me believe that I could achieve that as well. Also artists like J-Bru, Ghettosocks and Wordburgler (all Canadian artists) were really my shit growing up.

P-Rice: How was the Nova Scotia hip-hop scene or the Canadian hip-hop scene in general?

JKenny: . How was the Canadian scene when I was first starting to get into music? I don’t think the Canadian scene has ever been extremely great for hip-hop music, it’s not hard to tell that the majority of “Top” artists are out of the states, with the exception of Drake. Of course there’s dudes like madchild (swollen members), K-os, Maestro Fresh Wes, Kardinal offishall, R.A. the Rugged man, Buck 65 and most recently SonReal has been seeing some success, but no one’s really been able to cross the line like Drake has.

Aceoutrageous: Outrageous Frequency through the U.S.

ace

 

We’ve been gone for awhile but to sum up what has been going on in the world of P-Rice, a few weeks ago on February 19th- I had the chance to chop it up with up and coming artist Aceoutrageous. For those that don’t know who Aceoutrageous is, he is an up and coming artist out of New Jersey but is now over in Colorado and California. Ace called into the P-Rice Show for an interview that went close to if not over 45 minutes well he was on his way to a show in Salt Lake City, Utah for the following night. We were able to discuss Ace’s last project “The Outrageous Life Vol. 1” (download it here on iTunes), his work with President Obama and the HUD organization, Ace’s future project “The Green Tape” (which will be for free download on major hip-hop mixtape sites) and his experiences touring.

Aceoutrageous has opened up for such acts like Mac Miller, Machine Gun Kelly and many more; he has even toured with Big Boi from Outkast. A live and high-energetic performer Ace knows how to rock his crowds and makes sure everyone has had a good time “turn’t up!” Our favorites from Ace has to be his catchy yet soothing track “Company” to his erratic intense energy up-in-your-face track “Frequency” to comical yet melodic club banger “Finger Lickin’ Good”. We would love to have Ace come out and perform for our radio stations concert in the spring but final decisions haven’t been confirmed yet. If not- maybe in the future Ace can call into the show again to chop it up with us and kick some game about any new projects- you guys are more than welcome to!

Much Props & 1love- P-Rice

The 20 Year Overnight Success: Interview with Michael Wallace

Very interesting interview with indie writer and author Michael Wallace, hosted by David Gaughran, about Wallace’s success as an independent author who has released several novels through the Amazon e-book services. This is an inspiring interview because it exposes the truth in being an independent writer- it takes a lot of work to maintain a well-structured fan base but the hard work does pay off if you do it correctly with a little bit of luck. This interview along with others with Michael Wallace are full of knowledgeable information about being an independent writer, the marketing and industry behind it. If you are a striving artist like myself who is open minded to being involved with many genre’s of writing (like Michael Wallace) or even if your a writer in general- you may find this interview influential, knowledgeable and interesting.

Wolves_ebook smallerI have an interview today with Michael Wallace, an author who has sold over 400,000 e-books since he started self-publishing back in January 2011.

Michael patiently took the time over several days to answer my questions about writing, marketing, the craft, and the business. Given the length of the interview, and because I didn’t want to cut any of the great answers he gave, I’m posting this over two days.

The second part will go live at the same time tomorrow: 5pm GMT/Noon Eastern.

When I started self-publishing a couple of years ago, you were one of those guys already doing well that everyone was watching closely.

I think you uploaded your first in January of that year, and, if memory serves me right, The Righteous – your thriller set in a polygamist compound in the Utah desert – launched straight into the Top 100 of the Kindle Store and has…
