  • 0711 - Cashis talks about Obie Trice, his album, "22's", and more

    HHIH got the opportunity to talk to Shady Recordsí rapper Cashis. After Obieís sudden departure from the label we had to ask him about the situation at Shady Records. We also talked about his upcoming debut album, Loose Cannon (due in September), his first single, the future of Shady Records, and more.

    HHIH: Whatís up Cashis? Thanks for doing this interview with the new hip hop website HHIH.

    What up fammo. No problem, thank yaíll for interviewing me, pahtnah.

    HHIH: So, manÖ Whatís going on in your life as of right now?

    A lot of restructuring is going on in my life. Musically, I am in a great space. And right now, thatís all I have to keep me going. Everybody has ups and downs, struggles, and triumphs, so Iím in between both right now.

    HHIH: We need to talk about whatís going on with Shady Records. We recently learned that Obie Trice has left the label. What do you feel about that?

    First off, Everything is Shady, and Everything at Shady is in mint condition. Yeah, O, is making big moves on his own, which is a beautiful thing. I have no feelings toward his departure. Heís still family, and itís being in a family, and watching your older brothers, start a successful business, and bring you in and get you on the level they are, and one of your brotherís, uses his power, and talent, to start another successful business. Iím happy for him, as everyone else should be.

    HHIH: Listening to the song, ďThe Giant,Ē that Obie recorded, it sounded like he wasnít too happy about his position on the label. Obviously he wants to release more material. I can understand him to a certain point. But I mean.. Heís released two albums. You, Stat Quo, and Bobby still havenít released your first.

    Itís just lyrics man. Great lyrics, in the moment of truth. Iím on my 3rd project in my eyes, and the public. Iím not a new face or name to the public anymore. I am on more of The Re Up, than anybody else. Iím on all singles of The Re Up. I sold out my limited edition County Hound E.P., hit a quick Number 1, on Billboard Heat Seakers chart. My video still gets airplay, and we only had a budget of 5k, on that. So, with Zero promotion, we more than achieved our goal, which leads to the demand for the material today. And also, leads, to the mom and pop stores, and the big chain stores buying a good amount of units of my LP. It was a brilliantly executed plan by King Mathers, Paul Rosenberg, Dart Parker, and my Interscope family also. Mr. Iovine, A. Flad. C. Clancy, what up errbody! Now, watch what happens with Loose cannon. Plus, I have to be in the top 3 best mixtape artist ever. All new music, and quality. So, I havenít disappeared from the public. Sometimes, I get caught up in other activities, that distract me from what I should be doing.

    HHIH: Do you feel like he disrespected Shady with the track?

    I havenít heard the track, and I donít wanna hear it. Because, the general response is it is a diss at Marshall, and myself. And, I donít want to listen to the track, with that in mind. Obie and I, were planning to drop a group album, and we are about to hit this tour together in 2 weeks. Alchemist, Stat, Bone Thugs, weíre all going to perform a amazing tour. So, as far as I know, the comradery and respect that Obie and I have is still very much intact.

    HHIH: Are you worried that this will happen again? I canít help to think of Stat Quo. I mean.. The guy has waited since 2003 to release his album, and heís still just waiting..

    I got much more important things to be concerned about. Everybody is their own man, and entitled to do what they need to in order to survive. Iím not in anyone elseís shoes but Ramone, Shady Capo Ca$his. Blacc Jesus. So, my only concern is increasing the validity of our label, to untouchable heights. And being compensated for the work I do. Which, my fans know, I do, my part 100%. I bleed for this Shady Family. No matter if Iím the last 1 standing. I could do this 4eva. Iím only 27, and on my 3rd major release, my talent is just now showing to some. So, they are going back to my mixtapes and The Re Up, and Countyhound, and really understanding what they are hearing. It was a format change from what youíre used to hearing. The same way Trap Muzik is a classic, and after that, the general public, wanted to hear more, of lyrics with substance in it. U may not be able to dance to all of it, but you get food for thought, and a classic album. And it opens ur ears, to hear and like, whateva it is you feel, as a consumer.

    HHIH: On a lot of forums and sites you can read comments like ďShady Records is dead,Ē ďShady Records is the new Death Row.Ē ďThey have no good artists,Ē etc. And in a recent remix of ďA MilliĒ, Chamillionaire raps ďsomebody send a message to Dr Dre and Eminem they takin so long to drop that we jam Soulja boy instead of them.Ē What do you feel about comments like that?

    Hahahahahahahaha. Dude is funny. KoopaÖ I like homebwoi doe. B4, I woulda been on his helmet 4 that! But, now, I understand that, when people say those type of rhymes, itís not a diss, itís jus for speculation. He is a fan, of Em and Dreís and wants them to come bacc to spark record sales, cuz he didnít do so well last album. Which is understandable for any emcee. And FUCC all internet haters. Shady will never die. And yeah, we the new Deathrow, of 96, at itís peak. And bacc then, it didnít matter as long as Pac dropped a album each year. So, Iíll take that as a compliment. I love this feeling, I love pressure, and I donít lose.

    HHIH: Maybe your album (Loose Cannon) can be like a ďcome backĒ for Shady Records?

    We donít need a come bacc. The Re Up is at 4 mill world wide. Off 1 video. What other label can say that in todays hip hop world? Loose Cannon, will have a impact similiar to the Eminem Show. Even if it doesnít mirror it in record sales, it will be felt by all. And thatís all I truly ask for. I definitely foresee anutha platinum plaque to add. And the footprints, are in cement, not sand, so my mark wonít be blown away. Itís only the beginning.

    HHIH: So, Are you still working on it or have you actually finished it already?

    Itís been finished, I keep recorden, and making great records, So, we are juggling songs, and placen them on this LP, and stackn up records for album 2. 6 point stars and cocced hats. Due out in 09, on Shady/Interscope/Universal.

    HHIH: It was pushed back from July 25 to sometime in September. Any updates on that?

    We wanted to get the mixes perfect, and sample clearance needed to be fully completed. All splits needed to be done. Then, the situation, with my daughter happened. And I was already fighten 2 cases. So, I fell bacc, and got my legal situations in order, made sure my kids were cool (which they are and were), and really focused on getting my life in order. Plus, Iím clinically depressed, which probably wasnít good for me 2 release an album, on my brother Robís (R.I.P.) birthday. Also, 7-10, is the day of my beautiful young brideís departure from this world. And her b-day is 7-27. So, I am a mental mess right now. Heavily sedated, and Marshall recognized that, and saw me hitting rock bottom mentally, and he stepped in, to basically save me. Cuz, Iím really out there, 4 whateva now. And I have a lot to lose, my whole label and all my family and friends are riden on this LP. Shit, the West Coast and Chicago is, cuz, I can open that door for The West and Midwest talent, to be seen, heard, and given a chance to shine. If I fucc that up, then my life was a waste, becuz I would b hurting more people than helping them.

    HHIH: A snippet of a track called ď22ísĒ featuring Eminem leaked to the internet a while ago. A lot of people expects that to be the first official single from the album. What can you say about that?

    Thatís actually gunna b on my side project with Young De, called Homeland Security. Without Emís verse. I keep recording, and sometimes for sure records get knocced off. Thatís the good thing about talent.

    HHIH: Can you tell us what the single will be called, and when we can expect to hear it?

    4-6 weeks, itís called ďOn TopĒ produced by Jake 1 and King Mathers. I should have the pre final mix tomorrow, and the mixed and mastered version in 2 weeks. Then we will begin pomotion, and video. And itís my buzz single. I got 5 more singles to go 4 yaíll. The hype is real G!

    HHIH: I really like that ďCanít Move MeĒ joint with you and Young De. Can we expect any more work from you two together?

    Thanx pahtnah. We always work 2getha. So u can definitely expect to hear more. Cop the Homeland Security album. We got 20 bangers on there.

    HHIH: Aight Cashis. Thanks for doing this interview with us. You got any last words before we wrap this up?

          This is fuckin shit i dont even want to hear 22s without Eminem.Cashis needs to stop with this King Mathers shit and stop tryna suck up to Eminem.

          There is only 1 reason the Re-up sold 4mil and it aint because Cashis is on it.

            Dude is tapped in the head.. this King Mathers bullshit is so stupid. I ain't ever even heard Em speak on Cashis before, he probably has but I seriously haven't heard him say anything in years. Matter of fact, Em hasn't said shit to anyone in years.

            And The Re-Up sold well, but it didn't do 4 mil. US: 1,630,000 and Worldwide: 2,238,150.

                  Sorry red rum, Worldwide includes US. So, it still did 2.2 million. Good sales but a far cry from 4 million.

                          "He is a fan, of Em and Dre’s and wants them to come bacc to spark record sales, cuz he didn’t do so well last album."

                          At least he knows that Encore was a flop/failure, i have a good feeling that Ems next album is going to to be dope!
