WILLIE THE KID
Our Cover Story features incredible emcee and entrepreneur with several successful businesses, WILLIE THE KID. We are honored to have the renowned Burgeoning Business Mogul grace the cover of OG Press Magazine. We had the pleasure of catching up with the Willie the Kid in Atlanta. Willie the Kid has a magnetic personality that’s exhibited in his music. His versatility in being able to share his artistry and business savy sets him apart from the others. It’s our pleasure to present candid interview with the Willie the Kid! Interviewed by Indigo Phoenyx.
Although LYNN, MA may not be the prototypical historical scene for hip-hop, one highly original artist has found himself among the best in the underground. Estee Nack, an MC notable for his original flow and adlibs, has become the talk of the underground boom bap hip hop music scene.

As a record collector, there is something about finding yourself in another city or country fulfilling the quest of an endless search to unearth
musical gems pressed on vinyl that you’ve been looking for which seems like an eternity and even ones newly introduced to you by a dealer or fellow collector in the process. For years record heads have traveled the globe and finding
themselves at conventions and shows both big and small, local or internationally known and always on the hunt for personal grails. One particular show that has been steadily growing on the radar and has slowly become a collectors show attended by a who’s who of
international dealers and buyers alike, is The Cratery Record Exchange which
happens during the Live Convention weekend in Toronto Canada.

I first heard of dynamic production duo True Cipher on their joint project Allah Preme aka AP the Overlord titled Three Ninjaz. I am honored to be a part of the exclusive Vinyl release on a track called Wing Chun. Hands down “In your eyes” is one of my favorite songs that made me delve into True Cipher’s musical catalogue. Their soulful gritty soundscape is compelling and magnetic. When the beats are heavily influenced by the drums, you are in for an amazing listening experience. True Cipher consists of two extremely talented musicians , O Da Beatsmith and Tonez. I have an immense amount of admiration and respect for these two men. As an artist who has had the pleasure of working with them, they make creating music such an enjoyable experience. It’s my honor to present this incredible interview with burgeoning production duo True Cipher.

Detroit native House Shoes is unapologetic and describes himself as “aggressively passionate,” which I find to be a wildly accurate self-assessment. He loves music almost as much as he loves his kids. His Street Corner Music imprint is celebrating a decade of distributing dope music from a diverse mix of both acclaimed artists and underrated, unknown, underground talent. Speaking with Shoes left me feeling like I had scored an interview with one of the great
architects of the culture. He speaks with quiet confidence but is unafraid to show a more vulnerable side, especially when discussing that which he loves and respects, and the uncertainty around the future of SCM.
