Interviews

Fish Scales on Nappy Roots, "Something Your Grandma Can Listen to," and New Project 40 Akerz

At some point near the end of Nappy Roots' most recent show in Lake Worth, after Fish Scales passed around his big bottle of vodka and Skinny Deville tried to light a joint on stage only to be strongly discouraged by security, I got the simply brilliant idea to interview the duo.

Serendipitously, my friend, street artist CHNK had some paper and a pen. I got him to write "Interview for New Times?" on a piece and hold it up. Through bleary eyes, Fish Scales read the page and nodded. He then, for reasons indeterminable to me and likely the rapper himself, handed my friend a ten dollar bill.
