We chop it up with Corey Scoffern, aka The Grouch, and take a retrospective look at his 25-year career/role in Hip Hop. We talk about his unconditional love for the game – as a fan, producer, pioneering indie-artist, performer, group member, father and mentor – as he continues to evolve as an emcee, and collaborator.
We definitely geek out on the lost art of sampling/digging for wax, – recalling his record haul from the dumpster at Rasputin. We also get his thoughts on releasing old and new projects via the vinyl format – including past and upcoming Record Store Day releases.
Speaking of new projects – The Grouch speaks on his upcoming project/collaboration with Murs – Thees Handz – and what it’s meant to him to re-connect with his fellow Living Legends mate. As for new Living Legends records, he talks about his efforts to get the group together and hopefully make something happen eventually. (So you’re saying there’s a chance!)
Lastly, we discuss his newest role as mentor – as he works with a 17-year old up-and-coming artist (Daniyel), and how he’s coaching his daughter (Rio Amor) in fostering her skills, and itch for wanting to rap, write, and perform.
Bonus – The Fox Crate DJ Challenge (feat The Grouch) – The Grouch drops his dream DJ set – which includes some certified HEAT!
