How are you Necro?
chilling, handling biz
was the show in London ? Which memories will you keep of the show
went very well, I made the front of the newspaper, the promoters came
back stage with champagne, happy we sold it out, we booked the next
show right on the spot at the Astoria, did 10k in merch, I fucked a
hot london bitch, caught brains for an hour, didnt catch anything,
Id say it was a big success.
visiting our site, youll see that Freddy is someone we really
love. Why did you choose to invite him on your shows? What do you think
of his new Project with Dj Stress? Are you a big Madball fan?
is a cool cat, Im real good friends with Lord Ezec, and I know Jorge
from Merauder for years, so the DMS crew has always showed me love,
so my crew, PLR and DMS are real tight, and so when my new management
team brought up including Freddy on some shows it was a no brainer,
I was down, he is doing his thing with the hiphop music and I wish him
the best, and I defintely feel Madball, theyre real rugged brutal
shit. One of my crew members, Carbone, has the Madball face tatted on
his leg, so we got diehards in the crew, I respect the whole hardcore
mentality because Im a hardcore dude, and I always been about loyalty,
respect, friendship and integrity, although very few humans really practice
these values, and I have always been first a metal head, death metal
and thrash, but real recognizes real, so I click with hardcore cats,
especially the legends, we all New York street cats.
heard that you came to music with metal stuff, what was the fact that
made you go to the hip hop side of it?
was nobody with our mentality in 90/91 sure there was brutal
rappers like the geto boys, g rap, ect. but we had the metal influence,
like the whole metal culture, there was no rugged white boys out and
honestly there hasnt been since, atleast that have blown up, so
its still missing, which is why I sell out 1000 cap clubs in major cities,
and I grew up in the projects of brooklyn, so metal head or not I was
getting into beef everyday, I mean fucking drama everyday, it never
let up, if u didnt have beef with someone in your building, it
was someone in another building, just a lot of tension, but i love it,
it made me who I am, Brooklyn in general made me ill, but the combo
of the projects, brooklyn, metal, hiphop, gave me a crazy combination.
youre still a big metal fan as we can see your guests on your
records... Which metal and hardcore band were the most important for
Slayer, Megadeth, Sepultura, Death, Obituary, Anthrax, Destruction,
Kreator, Pestilence, Carcass, too many to name....
seems that you also check into metal your inspiration for the artwork
of your records like the one for « The Pre-Fix For Death »
as the atmosphere is a lot similar as the cover made for Megadeths
« Peace Sells... But Hows Buying ? »,
both made by Edward J.Repka.
Is the fact to ask him to do the cover was really
linked with Megadeth?
of course, but not only Megadeth, but death covers, Nuclear Assault
and Possessed, Ed did all of those covers too and all those albums are
favorites of mine, so it was the whole movement, the whole aura, to
be the first rapper to fuck with Ed Repka is defintely sick shit man,
for the legacy.
France and Europe, a lot of people define your music as Rap-Hardcore
but people who say that dont really know the common links both
styles have. For us, hardcore comes from hip hop because of the flow
on the vocals, for the impact of the vocals, for the lyrics, what do
you think about that?
dont know, I describe my shit as hardcore hiphop when Im just
rapping over beats, to take that further I invented the term death rap
to describe my style when I rap violent since I feel I do it in a way
like noone on earth, and when I do hiphop and metal together I came
up with the never before used term, metal hiphop, in the end its all
Necro shit, regardless of me rapping porn rhymes or thug shit, its my
personality, Im an original, this is one thing Necro is above all else
both more and more popular with your brother Ill Bill. To make stuff
together is of course a way to show a mutual respect, but do you think
its also kind of adversity/confrontation?
dont know, I just do my thing, no matter who I work with, I take
my craft very serious, and I go out of my way to be unique in a brutal
fashion, always thinking when I drop shit, Bill is my brother so ofcourse
we work together occasionally but we both do different shit.
you think its the same with your guest like Jamey Jasta, Lord
is the same, all those collabos were different and all those artists
were different from each other.
originally create Psycho Logical to release your own stuff because nobody
wanted to. Do the things change? Do you have some good offers now from
I wanted to get a million dollar major label deal now I could, but they
would own and control everything and d be signing a contract that gives
them way more rights than I would have myself, thats why anyone
gets signed with a million dollars on majors, then its a dice
roll with ya life, wether you blow up through their system or not, and
most likely you will have to change ya shit and make radio songs strickly,
for me this path is not creative enough and I like to control my shit,
I wouldnt risk losing what I built to get a major label to blow
me up, Id rather own my own masters and get distribution deals like
I have, Im in business 7 years now, and going strong, pretty soon I
will be a multi millionaire and then even richer as time goes on and
it will have been on my terms doing shit my way, I think in the end
that is better, if I am wrong then I am wrong, but I go with my heart.
create your own label is also linked with the fact that you were a victim
of racizm as youre a white guy. Does things evolved or is it still
the same shit nowadays?
Nothing has changed in hiphop, only I have changed, I now dont
give a fuck if anyone in the so called hiphop world likes me, back then
maybe 10 years ago I would try to impress people, even though I knew
I was ill I was still in that world where I felt I needed the help of
certain people and would constantly get hated on, now I am in a position
where I have my own fanbase, I can pack L.A with 1,000 kids, my fans,
where Mobb Deep couldnt pack half of that and theyre on
g unit, thats how shit has come full circle, you cant stop fans
from loving me, and as long as I give my fans what they want and need
I am good, and things will grow and snowball huge from here, the racism
hasnt changed, I just got stronger and more immune to it, it doesnt
make or break me that people in major label hiphop world act like I
dont exist, my merch sales, and ticket sales are that of a major
label artist, now my cd sales will soon match them, and thats
when I have so much power I make all the decisions, its all a sacrifice,
I have put in 7 years running my label, and 10 years before that, Im
in this game since 1990, fuck anyone that dont got respect, I
would get violent on any of them in the street easily.
also saw some articles on the newspaper because of your provocative
reputation (Ginsligton Gazette...). Whats your feeling while seeing
that kind of stuff?
love it! Finally giving me respect for what I do, my shit is disgusting,
tasteless I dont know, girls think my dick is tasty cuz they lick
it after every show, probably the daughters of those people mad at me,
I love it, and I want more of it, the more they talk about me the richer
Ill get off my style, which is true real hiphop uncensored.
if provocation creates a lot of criticism, it seems to be also a major
fact on your increasing succes. How do you see that ?
gonna be huge and I am a success because I got talent, lets not get
it twisted with the contraversey, I know what the fuck Im doing, I make
insane beats that rival hiphop legends and I spit intricate brutal violent
and pornographic wordplay, kids feel the realness from a white kid from
Brooklyn that they can relate to, all the rest is just people analizing
too much, in the end its gonna be what its gonna be, and Im winning.
used a sample from the Doors « Light My Fire »
on a song. As I heard youre a big Morrison fan. Do you think your
admiration comes from his attitude? From his lyrics? From the swing
of his music? Or is it from the fearful aspect he could have on you
when you were young with sex, drugs and rock'n roll ?
did an interpolation of his hook on my song, not a sample, but yes I
love the Doors and Jim Morrison was unique, he isnt a huge influence
on me, but I respect his talent.
you see your music as an art, as a life style or as a therapeutic thing ?
of the above.About your projects,
what about a new Necro album ? A «
Sexy Sluts » part II maybe ?haha
new Necro album dropping this summer, will be the most hardcore record
also have various project like Jewish Gangterz with Danny Diablo, and
also a 100% metal project with Igor Cavalera... Can you tell us more
about all that? And also about other stuff we havent heard about
that stuff is on the back burner for now, the new Necro album must drop
for 2007 and I must tour the entire world like a maniac, a lot of dues
need to be paid touring wise for me and its gonna explode me to the
top, whenever Im in motherfuckers faces they respect me, I aint some
asskissing clown that tries to get respect, in person people feel the
realness and once I tour the entire world people will get to meet me
and see what its like to talk to a real Brooklyn gangster, and when
I say gangster I dont mean like Al Capone, I mean like not taking
no shit, blunt, respectable street motherfucker with pride for his culture
and family and art.
the fact that you and Ezec are both jewish, why did you choose such
a name? Is there a special meaning behind this name? Was there some
Jewish Gangterz in New York years ago ?
cuz like I said above, we are gangster, as gangster as anyone in hiphop
that is black that claims theyre gangster, except we are white
guys and we are jewish, jews started organized crime, dressing in suits,
ect. So it fits, we persony those dudes, aint nobody playing us, nobody
is sonning us, we dont get beat up by nobody, we dont do
diss records, we got beef with you we see you in person, we just real
men, we love music and we represent our shit, so Jewish Gangsterz fit
very well, the hiphop world never seen no motherfucker like me yet or
like my crew.
sure youre part of it but whats up with La Coka Nostra ?
When the record will be released?
is Bills thing, you would have to ask him.
Can you tell us more about the links between Capo Regime, La Coka Nostra,
le D.M.S crew... ?
is down with each other, just friends, all street dudes, white kids,
jews, italians, irish, ricans, a lot of latin cats, all hood, all real
that respresent with different groups of music and clicks out of music,
also produce porns movies, you never stop... Is it another way to explain
your fellings, or is it more a financial stuff?
like sex, I plan on being big in the sex world because I feel I am the
best sex rapper ever, ofcourse there are guys like kool G Rap and Kool
Keith, no disrespect to them, or luke or too short, but I got the torch
now, my whos ya daddy track is the illest shit to drop sexually
in the new millenium, thats a fact, I got a million plays on myspace,
and Im about to drop a new porn anthem soon, so 2007 will have another
porn anthem to rock for the next 2 years.
never thaught to link porns and music together and invite Evan Seinfield and
his wife ?
once told me he was a fan of my music, I was always a fan of Biohazard
and Im cool with Billy and Danny, so who knows what might happen in
your plans for Psycho Logical ? Some new releases?
new Necro album 2007 blown up to its maximum potential, big tours, festivals,
the works, new videos, ect. Then after that I dont know, but you
can be sure it will be quality.
worked with a lot of people, youve produced Ill Bill, Sabac, Goretex,
Mr Hyde, Q-Unique, and a lot more people would like to work with you.
How do you choose the people you work with?
dont care to work with a lot of people cuz I still feel I need
to be huge, so my energy is focused on Necro, but Im down to work with
hiphop legends, I did 2 tracks with U-God from Wutang, if the person
is really popping and its someone I like Ill work with them, but for
the most part I dont do collabos, I dont like to make myself
available to motherfuckers who want my name on their shit so they can
sell more units, the money aint worth it to water myself down, fuck
that, Id rather stay special.
you think you have something in common with Jasta who tries to rise
up hardcore music and tries to help some newer bands ?
we have a lot in common, we are similar in a lot of ways, he impressed
me with his success and being younger than me by 2 years I think, we
are both very hungry and ambitious people.
we see you in France soon?
Yes this year, maybe fall...
know that you like making the promotion of your sites to make people
spend money on your stuff... So, go on!
and buy shit, why? Because I fucking said so, and because if you dont,
you will choke on a lot of shit, good promotion you think my friend?
Thanks for the interview!
