|Welcome to the Court Interview with Dungeon Masta|
Shockwave:We hear that you are the new face of east coast "gothic hip-hop". Can you tell us about that style of music?
Gothic Hip Hop is a bridge to the realm of the morbid era. When horror core was just making a name for itself, me and my legion decided to bring forth an evolution of a beginning of a rightful end. Morbid is a culture of Hip Hop using all knowledge to expand beyond simple reason.
Brooklyn Zu!!! Can you tell the readers a lil history on this legendary crew?
"Brooklyn Zu" was put together by Old Dirty Bastard of Wu Tang Clan. I came into the picture around 96. The group is 12'O Clock, Zoo Keeper, Dutch Mastah, Buddha Monk, Shorty Sh**t Stain, Murdoc, and O.D.B. then came the Zu Ninjaz, Zu Manchu, and Zu Bullies. There is a lot of us! We just as deep as the Generals! Now I got my own group, which is a branch off from the "Brooklyn Zu" tree, which is "Dirty Clanzmen" (ODB tribute group)! We keep his legacy going, and we takin' no prisoners!
As a disciple of Ol Dirty Bastard, how have things been since his passing?
Not going to front... There have been a lot of stressful times! I miss my brother, and on the reals, it really has taken a big toll on me 'because he died on my bornday! So every year that I celebrate the day I was born, I also am in mourning of his passing. But on a brighter note, I accepted that situation as transference of energy!
Who are some of the artists you have had a chance to work with outside of the Wu Tang clan?
Judah Priest, Montana Tripp. I've done shows from Big Daddy Kane to Rakim! Right now I've been focusing on doing features with Indie artists! They're hungrier! I'm currently working on the new album, "The Adventures of Ezekiel Rage"! There will be some surprises, so look out for it!
We know you stay working, but when is your next project dropping?
Well, since you asked, the next project that is coming out is "Dungeon Masta presents morbid society hell has a face, Vol. 2"! The release date for that is October 30th. Before that, I have a special project in the makings called "The M.A.N. Album"! It will also feature up and coming Indie artists. It should be finished by September, and then I'll give you a release date on that. The Dirty Clanzmen album, "O.D.B. 4EVA", will be finishing up soon along with the mixtape album, "C.I.B. Dirty", coming soon! I'm also on my peeps, Rkitech anti skinny jean's LP, "The Radio Show" which will be official by October.
