With Soundset week already in full swing, it can be hard to stay up to date on everything that is happening across the Twin Cities. Luckily we here at Breaks X Lakes have got you covered with the return of our Soundset Preview episode of Lakeviews podcast.
Hosted by Derek & Justus, this Minnesota Hip Hop podcast is full of helpful information on what to expect to see & hear at the iconic Hip Hop festival. Along with witty banter over anticipated performances, this year’s Soundset Preview also showcases sonic selections from some of the proud producers taking part in the annual Last of The Record Buyers Production Showcase, hosted by Big Quarters at the Essential Elements Tent.
And to stoke the excitement for “rap christmas,” Derek sat down to talk with some of the some of the most anticipated performers before they take the crowds at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. First, he sits down with Rhymersayers & Stophouse juggernaut Prof about the inspiration behind his new album, Pookie Baby as well as what to expect from his show-stealing performances. Then, Go95.3′s Shut Up & Raps champion Jayso Creative calls in to discuss the new Shut Up & Rap stage at this year’s festival as well as her new album, What’s The Hold Up. Finally, Derek chats with Twin Cities legend in the making, O.G. Grip to talk about his insatiable work ethic and how Scarface helped influenced his latest album, Lurkin‘.
