NEW @CageWM Track Prod. DJ Mighty Mi: The Void
Cage falls under that weird category of my “friends”. People that I have supported 200% from day uno, before it was all trendy, that don’t reply to my emails anymore. Lolz. That now includes folks like Vinny from Jersey Shore and Pauly D. Here’s a pro-tip: if you want me to support your career, reply to my emails. It’s really that simple. I’m still posting this though, ’cause in a way, Cage helped start my journalistic career. (He was my favorite rapper when I started interviewing rappers). I still have a warm sans homo spot in my heart for him. Then of course, he started hanging with Shia LaBeouf and Kid Cudi and was too good for lil’ guys out there. ;)
Anyways, “post-Def Jux” is effing weird these days… Aesop Rock (whom I am not friends with) is on Rhymesayers. El-P is working with Killer Mike (thanks to the recommendation of Byron Crawford). And Cage is on “Tribute Recordings.” Whatever that is.
Cage is still my dude though. As far as I am concerned… he was the GLUE of Def Jux (even though they had a DJ named KrazyGlue — who I think just works in the corporate world now). Indie hip-hop for ya, folks. It’s a rough business.
