Many of us listen to rap music as an escape from the realities of the world around. Unfortunately, since there are so many rappers available to us, we're okay when we don't hear from another artist ever again. We tend to forget that these individual artists are regular folks who have decided that the career path they want to follow is one that relies heavily on the public. Truth be told, our favorite artist(s) is not just in the business to make money, to make that one big hit and then never be heard from again. Like I said, him/her has decided to make a career out of the artform they truly love.
According to filmmaker Paul Iannacchino, Jr., rappers get old. Their music stays the same age. Paul (former member of Hangar 18, turned filmmaker) interviewed rap personalities past, present and future; from indie to mainstream for his new documentary “Adult Rappers” — a film aimed at exposing the realities of working MCs who treat their music as a normal job. Artists interviewed were RA the Rugged Man, Homeboy Sandman, Jarobi, Slug, Blueprint, Louis Logic, Open Mike Eagle, and many others.
Here is the entire interview with Paul.
