Episode 11, I didn’t think we’d make it after our vainglorious DJ Premier 6-hour tribute, but with some much needed time-off –we’re back. Apathy of The Demigodz joins us, and what was supposed to be a 20 minute interview turned out to be 75 minutes unedited. Ap gets personal with us, holding nothing back, while discussing everything from his come-up, the trials and tribulations of an indie rapper, being courted by Jimmy Iovine, signing with Atlantic records, being a Freemason, his production process, his mental health, his love for Don Mattingly, all the way to his future projects, including his collaboration with O.C., Perestroika. Of course, a Take It Personal episode has to include dopeness, so we’ve included music by Ghostface Killah, Shyheim, Kurious, De La Soul, Black Moon, Fashawn, Open Mike Eagle, Brother Ali and a bunch of slept-on goodies and new heat rocks to keep you entertained. –Jason Gloss

Our homie Open Mike Eagle just dropped one of the best albums of ’14. Dark Comedy is out now and can be streamed & copped for just $7.99 here. For a more in-depth interview with Open Mike Eagle check the one we did on OpJay. –Philaflava



SB: Many people gravitated towards your “Kobe Tai/Cobra Kai/Luc Robitaille” line. Kobe Tai dominated our hard drives for years. Ill Bill (Non Phixion) once referenced her on “Rock Stars,” but “Qualifiers” uses her name in what I believe to be one of your most memorable lines in recent years. It’s very unusual to hear hockey players dropped, let alone L.A. Kings legends Luc Robitalle. Were you a hockey fan growing-up or the name was just too good not to use in the spot?


OME: I only really watch hockey when the Blackhawks go deep into the playoffs. I can’t even really remember where I heard that name. When I was writing that scheme it just yelled itself at me from deep in my head somewhere. Ever had a hockey player yell his own name at you from inside your head?

Exactly as advertised, Mike rapping a song at a random laudromat, as people go about sorting their delicates in the background. I’m really curious about how this was staged and if the customers in the background were coached at all – they seem completely unperturbed by any of it.
EDIT: Just asked Mike himself and no, none of them were in on it. In his own words: “just good old fashioned south LA apathy”
