More Kwame

Last October I wrote a post detailing the return of Kwame, The Boy Genius, to hip hop's collective consciousness. Undoubtedly this is a good thing. Too many of the guys I loved back in the late 80's and early 90's (say it with me: "the golden age of hip hop") are now either out of the game or are doing underground records about how they don't get the respect they deserve. So it's good to see dude like Kwame get some love, as he does in this interview on Pop Matters.

It's a decent interview and we learn some interesting things about Kwame. For instance he loves the Start Wars and the composer who scored the movie is one of his idols. Probably wouldn't hear that from many hip hop producers. Not surprisingly we also find out that he no longer enjoys talking about polka dots and being dissed by Biggie. I'm sure I'm part of a very select group of people that are interested enough in Kwame's current activities to write 2 posts about within a 4 month span, but so be it. If you're in that group I'm sure you've enjoyed it.
