Roundtable Discussion – Originality in Hip-Hop – Hosted by @ Screwed Up Records & Tapes

This is a first in a new series of ours, called Roundtable Discussions. We pick a topic, and our panel of artists chops it up. The panel consisted of: Jon Black, Renzo, Wes Coas, Nasty Nique, Dirty Dog D, and MoCity Menis, with Wes Coas as moderator. The topic for this discussion is Originality in Hip-Hop.

It originated from a conversation me and Jon Black where having about originality in Hip-Hop, due to an incident that happened in the Houston underground hip-hop scene. Jon was very into it, and I thought it would make for a great talk on camera. So we decided on a panel, and put things in motion.

We chose to host this Roundtable Discussion at Screwed Up Records & Tapes, the original screw shop founded by DJ Screw. I thought the best place to have the discussion on Originality in Hip-Hop, was the symbol of originality in hip-hop in Houston.

The discussion is split into 5 parts, each part is about 15 minutes. It came out great, and overall is very entertaining, and a good discussion. Topics are all over the place (all relating to originality), from DJ Screw, to Jay-Z, Rhiana, even Will Smith, and everything in between.

So check out the videos, and if you like it, share it with a friend or two, or fifteen. Shouts out to all of the artists: Jon Black, Renzo, Wes Coas, Nasty Nique, Dirty Dog D, and MoCity Menis. Appreciate Wes Coas moderating, he did a great job. And big shouts out to Big Bub, and everybody up at Screw Up Records & Tapes for being so accommodating. Make sure to check out their site, where you can order the different chapters of Screw Tapes. If your in Houston, come check out the shop. It will be moving at the end of August, so check the site for details. R.I.P. DJ Screw.
