This is the first of many 5 Shot interviews to come. As the title indicates, we have The Grouch to kick things off in support of his latest album Show You The World. I reference this song “Artsy,” which I believe is the lead single, so you may want to check that (I personally like this remix better). Actually, if you check his Myspace page you can hear a couple of the other songs referenced in the interview, plus a bunch of other stuff so open another tab and listen to the music while you read the words from the man himself.
You feature your daughter on the cover of Show You The World. How much and in what areas has having a kid affected your approach to your music? Will you encourage her to listen to your music?
Was there a specific incident that sparked “Artsy” or is it just a culmination of observations over the years? Have you had to deal with fans who might have gotten their feelings hurt?
“Watch, Watch” is another one of my favorite joints. How did you hook up with Mike Marshall, and for those unaware can you describe him and his legacy in the Bay?
Mike Marshall has been around for a minute. He sang “Rumors” which was the late 80’s hit by Timex Social Club. That was big. As far as “The Bay” legacy goes, he’s most well know for singing the chorus to The Luniz “I Got Five On it”. I was very excited to have him on my album. He actually contacted me when he was recording his last album Beats, Rhymes and Life. Eligh and I did a cut with him on that and he returned the favor. Currently we’re working with him for the new Grouch and Eligh album due early next year.
You have a line where you say, “What was underground inventive, now is just in fashion, adjust your passion.” Can you elaborate more on that line and explain what you meant?
Last one, what’s your favorite Murs album and why?
