I thought RZA and KP weren't cool anymore.
,Peace! I want to straighten out the album cover to The Offering. A lot of people have seen it and I just want to straighten one thing out. The album cover is stained glass. I had to let everybody see that. Coming back after a couple of years, I had to light up my cover. The sensation of the color of light, nobodyís ever done that before.
When I said that Babygrande wanted to change my cover, they didnít want to change my cover, but they wanted to redo it so that somebody else would get the credit for it. They wanted their people to come in and do that same cover so their people could get the credit for it. I wanted to keep the credit for that because I had that cover for a couple of years. I always come with something different and Iím always changing. No one ever did that. Itís just something different.
Right now, Iím still out in Cali. I have a show with the GZA out in Chicago. Thatís going to be fun. Thatís going to be cool. I think Dreddy Kruger is going to be there and a lot of other cats that I havenít seen in a long time. Thatís going to be fun. Iím still working. My next album is damn-near done. Iíve just been working and having fun. Iím chilling with my man Black Moses right now and Iím about to go out to Mexico City to take a few pictures.
I ended up hosting an after-awards joint to the BET Awards. Priest had his three-piece suit on! It was crazy. I was killing them with the way I rolled up. Everybody was like, ĎOh, thatís Priest!í I ended up running up on some cats from the Lyricists Lounge. I got there so late and I had to host the after-party over at Club 702. My man Brody hooked that up. They said I couldnít get into the awards because I came too late. I was about to Debo my way up in there. We had The Offering flyers and we were making a little riot outside of it. I donít think they caught it on the news but they definitely knew that we were there. If I was in there, I would have walked on stage. So after the awards, there were so many parties going on. I told everybody to come through because I was hired. I was supposed to do it with Rihanna. The person that hired me for the party didnít even show up. They paid me though! They told me Mary J was supposed to be there and nobody ended up coming. They told me I should perform and I was like, ĎMan, Iím not going to perform!í Some of the people were kind of pissed because they were told Rihanna and Mary J were coming to sing and I was the only cat that came there. I got my money up. I spoke to Planet Asia and he said he would come through but he didnít. Thatís cool. I donít know. He was probably at another party. I really miss the way he used to hold me.
Iíve been in the studio with my man DJ Wool. Big up to him. Me and my man V.I. are working. Youíre going to hear a lot from him. Thatís another artist Iím working with. We were just in there making music and shouting like we were in church. Itís spiritual music that you have to be in the spirit to understand. Itís some different stuff.
We went to Shavoís crib from System of a Down and they wanted me to jump on this joint. RZA had given me a call and said the cats from System of a Down wanted me to knock out a verse for this project theyíre doing. Reverend Burke was there and he had me on the floor! We were at Shavoís house. I did the track and we were in there bugging out all night long. Tech from Sway and Tech came through and I let him hear the album. He was like, ĎWhat is this?í We went up on the radio and played some songs. It was heavy up there. He played two of the joints and the phone lines blew up. The phones were blowing up and we were just chilling.
Then we ended up going to Divine Forceís radio station. That was one of the deepest radio stations Iíve ever been to. If all the radio stations were like that, I think we would be in a much better place. Heís into a lot of conscious stuff. The radio station is really, really that deep.
And for everybody that doesnít know, the album comes out August 21, 2007. I did a little freestyle about it with a little kidís voice. Check out the MySpace. Wizzy Dee!
