  • Sang Interview....dont know too much bout him but interesting on the stuff he says

    It’s the oldest trick in the Hip-Hop book.

    An artist has the skills to pay the bills, but no shine on his grind (i.e. publicity, hype). Said artist then targets an established artist with a surplus of shine, but maybe has a “chink in the armor;” a flaw of some sort – like suspect skills, street credibility or motivation. The established artist may respond and catapult the unknown artist into the public arena like MC Shan vs. “a then unknown” KRS-1. Sometimes the established artist never responds directly, but the unknown causes just enough media ruckus to jumpstart a platinum career like Bone Thugs-n-Harmony vs. Three 6 Mafia.

    Then there are those rare occasions when the established artist is just flat out bullied off the block by the more aggressive unknown, as was the case with Ja Rule and the current established artist with a surplus of shine, 50 Cent.

    “He’s on the cover of XXL magazine with a crossbow like Robin Hood, but he’s robbin’ the hood. He’s stealing from the poor and it’s making him rich,” says Black Trump Entertainment recording artist SANG, who joins the 50 Cent Resistance Movement on March 8th with his solo debut, Say Hi 2 Tha Bad Guy.

    Hip-Hop forums have been abuzz with talk about the “Bad Guy Attacks 50 Cent” campaign that was launched a few weeks back, but the question remains: Who is SANG?

    Well… Who is Mike Jones? (You’ll find out later in an upcoming HHDX interview.) Who the hell was Slim Thug? Who is Bump J?

    They’re all young brothers with work ethics to match their enormous ambitions. The only thing they need the majors for is, using Twista’s words, “A bigger poster.”

    SANG is just doing what hustlers do – burning the block with his product. The actor/director/label CEO/recording artist comes from a hustling family. He is one of thirty-two children fathered by a pimp. A peculiar distinction for sure, SANG picked up quite a bit of game from pops and it shows in his catchy one-liners and shrewd business maneuvers. The southern Indiana native has already set the Midwest on fire with his Midwest Mad *****s and Explosive compilations. Now he’s setting his sights on your neck uv da woods.


    Ladies and gentlemen… say hi to the bad guy...

    You’re being called a new artist, but you’ve actually been putting in work on the underground scene for over a decade. How did you get started?
    I was CEO of [a label called] Lay It Down Records back when we were young knuckleheads fresh from the block. I was a senior in high school in 1995. We dropped a compilation called MidWest Mad *****s. It sold unbelievable units. Long story short, we went from having fun to handling business. I had to sharpen my business skills and by the third album, called No Love, we was offered a deal from Relativity. At that time, Triple Six Mafia was signing a week before us. That’s when I found out having a gang of *****s ain't always a good thing. Like Kells, I was going forty directions on a one way street and the deal slipped out from under us. To me that was a sign to do my own thing. I started Black Trump Entertainment in 2000.

    What was your first release on Black Trump?
    Explosive was the first jump off CD. I spent a lot of time in the Bay, clicked up with a few producers and did some collabos with J.T. The Bigga Figga, Rappin 4 Tay, Messy Marv and a few other Bay Pioneers. The compilation featured some of the top underground emcees from Louisville and Southern Indiana at that time. The album was straight gangsta. The first single "Ride or Die" featuring 4 Tay was a hood hit, but before the album was released, 4 Tay pulled some scandalous shit. So, I refused to promote that *****, but it's all good. I went in the studio and clowned the ***** all over the intro. The album did 10 thousand units including Soundscan units, and it was a wonderful thing.

    Talk about your movie Deep in the Game.
    Deep in the Game is a movie I wrote, directed and starred in. It was crazy because we started out on 35mm film. If you know any thing about film, you know that shit is expensive. I reached out to the theater department at U of L and it was cool until the big lights and cameras showed up.

    What happened when the cameras showed up?
    Everybody went Denzel [Washington] and Halle Barry on me, so I shut that shit down and shot down to Nashville put together a trailer and shopped it around. A month later MC Breed and Leroy McMath of Power Records in the ATL got at me and was like let’s go. We had a young budget so we made magic. We did distribution with Spartan Worldwide and it was a beautiful thing.

    Tell us about your new album.
    Say Hi 2 tha Bad Guy is the first solo project coming off the label, and it’s my first solo project as an artist. I'm coming out blazin. I've been laying in the cut gritting my teeth watching 106 and Park, TRL... peeping every thing become Hip-Pop. Where the gangstas at? A lot of entertainers; not enough artists. The game is fucked up. So I'm here to put the gangsta back in rap fa' sho. So Say Hi 2 tha Bad Guy fa' sho.

    You’re criticism of 50 Cent on the song “All Eyez on Me ’05,” and in other interviews, has been pretty tough -- some say unfair. What do you say?
    50 is a circus clown in makeup, big shoes, squirting flower and all dat shit. His whole crew. You can see through them *****z like freshly cleaned windows. Nine shots? You come in the game claiming to get shot 9 times like that’s gangsta. The *****s that did the shooting -- them *****s is gangsta. They should drop an album. Now everybody in the camp been shot. Young Buck is the only G in the unit, and he’s bouncin’ to UTP with Juvie. Them *****s is sad. Plus… Eminem and Dr. Dre. Remember Dre in the World Class Wreckin Crew wit lipstick on, and Em looks like he can't wait to dress in drag. These are the notorious gangstas in Hip-Hop? Please… Tupac and Biggie would be sick to their stomach if they knew what was going on today.

    What do you say to people who think your whole “All Eyez On Me ’05” campaign against 50 Cent is just a gimmick?
    It’s not a gimmick. It’s a strategy. Music wise I have my album Deep in Da Game comin out... I got Pump and Verneax, two of my artists, gettin' ready to hit the world in the back of the head. Movie wise we got a comedy called The Big Pepperoni that’s gone be off the chain. I will give it to you like it was given to me. Get out of the music business and get into the business of music.
