Questions asked by P-Rice:
P-Rice: For those that don’t know who you are, introduce yourself & where you’ve derived your stage name from…
Cal: Hey peoples, my name’s Callan Roberts, but you can call me CAL. I’ve always gone by Callan my whole life, but always thought of going by Cal. This just seemed like the moment to finally try that out. Hopefully people will be able to pronounce/spell my name now.
P-Rice: Where did you grow up?
Cal: I grew up for my first 11 in Georgia in kinda upper middle class neighborhoods, then moved to Vermont and have lived here since, hopping around towns all in the state. Been in Burlington a while and it’s kinda my home base at this point.
P-Rice: At what age did you get into hip-hop music?
Cal: I got into it when I was 11. All my classmates were really into hip-hop and frankly the only music I’d ever been into was what my sister and mom played. So lots of Barenaked Ladies and Good Charlotte. They showed me Eminem, 50, Lil’ Jon, Snoop, and all of those guys who were big in 2003 or so. So even though doing rap is newer to me I’ve always been into hip-hop.
