TM: We Got The Future Of The South aka Mr Ridin So Slow Himself!! Whats Good Question?

Question:”ahhh, you know homie….HIGH as a gallon of unleaded about now….chillin'”

TM: Seems Like Nothing But Success Since Day One..Do Us The Honor & Let Folks Know Who You Are.

 Question:” i know it seems that way…but alot of work went into making this a success, and there was alot of failures first….as far as me, im the “EX D-BOY with the B-BOY FLOW”…im like the TIM DUNCAN of RAP, mayne….Im not too flashy, but i get the job done. I’m a lyricist.  I take pride in being Creative…..shit, The Source magazine called me a “Lyrical Hotshot”, so i guess ill run with that. (LAUGHS OUT LOUD)…on the real though…(singing like LIL WAYNE)..BITCH, IM ME…IM ME…..

 

TM: Obviously Music Played A Major Role In Your Lifetime..What Influenced You The Most Growing Up?

Question:”life was my biggest influence. My daddy was a herion addict and a felon, You know the sob story, blah blah blah…but on the real, my mama raised me and taught me never to make excuses in life. and i always loved music..i wanted to be a DJ at first, but couldnt afford equipment….and i wanted to play an instrument…but couldnt afford that. so logically, being a rapper dont cost nothing…so i took the cheapest route available and ran with it…and the crazy thing is, its worked so far…..as far as what kind of music influenced me…HIP HOP!! OUTKAST, NAS, WU TANG CLAN, EMINEM< SCARFACE….im a fan and a STUDENT of this shit here….i study…i do my homework….to me, thats the only way to get better at this. Learn from the best that have ever done it……”

 

TM: You Been That Up & Coming Artist Putting In Work To Be Seen..What Advice Do You Give To Others Pursuing A Career In Music?

Question:”Work ethic, dog….dont sit around thinkin to yourself “IM SO DOPE, SOMEONE IS GONNA DISCOVER ME”, because its not gonna happen that way..Getting out there and hustlin’ is the only way it works…the tired ass “IM HUNGRY” Speech is BULLSHIT…it does not work…if your a hungry artist, then feed yourself….I had all the industry contacts in the world when i started from when i lived in LA…not until i sold 40,000 cds in the streets and got radio play did people in the industry talk to me or even have discussions about doing something…it takes alot of leg work to get to this point, and then when you do get signed, its ten times more the work……you just have to go after it.”

 

TM: The Dope Attic.Com..Question Running His Own Blog?? Speak On It.

Question:”yeah mayne…its the new age of technology…and a new way to reach your fans….i have fun with it. I also got this project im doing called “90daze” on there. Its a new freestyle everyday for 90 days over nothing but classic beats from the 90’s….i been getting a huge response from it.. I saw how artists like Croooked I and my man BAVU BLAKES were creating a huge online fanbase by dropping new freestyles every week….so i decided to take a step further and do a new one everyday….and its working, fam…i went from 200 views the first day to nearly 9,000 views yesterday. Gotta love the internet….”

 

TM: You Just Released The New Street Album Entitled “Xanax”..Why The Name Q?

Question: “its just keeping with the THEME….our movement in Texas is called “DOPE SUPPLY” and even though alotta people equate that to selling drugs…its not THAT. The word “DOPE” in hip hop is used to describe something thats GOOD…and we have a supply of GOOD music….DOPE MUSIC. my last cd was called “KUSH” which is the best strand of mariujana, in my opinion, and so i called this XANAX…another drug that can get your mind right. This Cd here does just that…takes your mind somewhere else…..you feel me?”

 

TM: What Separates This Release From Previous Ones?

Question:its more fluid to me….i feel im way more comfortable on this one. the last couple cds i put out , like “kush 2008” and “signed hype” (which was featured in the source magazine’s MIXTAPE SECTION) were me finding myself musically…i really feel like im getting better at this process of making songs, and it shows on this cd…

 

TM: Your 3 Favorite Songs From “Xanax”?

Question:”Shiny boots”, “Crashing Down” and “HIGH SCHOOL”. those are the songs that i bump….and i usually dont ever listen to my own shit.

 

TM: Your No Rookie When It Comes To Airplay..”Ridin So Slow” With Bun B & Sean Kingston And “That Boy Bad” With Gucci Mane

Your Now Causin Controversey With Your Latest Single “Dance Like A White Boy”..How Did The Record Come About?

Question:”just being frustrated….after i signed with EPIC, they started asking where my “dance club song” was….and i was like, “who in the fuck do u think you signed???”…and was really drunk and high in the studio and started making up some funny ass Bullshit and just recorded it….i never knew it would actually be taken seriously. A dj in chicago got ahold of it somehow and started playing it, and then the label got excited about it, and then Hamm at the BEAT in San Antonio started playing it and now a bunch of stations are adding it…so fuck it, if thats how i get attention, im down with it…because once people hear what type of music i actually make..and who i am as an artist they will become fans, and though i realize some people wont,…most people will understand it was a joke…just me having fun and clowning.”

 

TM: You Have Released A Long List Of Hits So Far..What’s Your Favorite Piece Of Music Ever Released?

Question:”PULL THE PLUG”…..IVE GOTTEN MORE POSITIVE FEEDBACK OFF THAT SONG THAN ANYTHING IVE DONE….AND “FANTASY” THE RECORD I DID WITH LIL WAYNE ON THE “DROUGHT IS OVER 2” MIXTAPE…..THOSE 2 RECORDS GOT ME A LOT OF ATTENTION AND REALLY HELPED BUILD MY FANBASE.

 

TM: Where do you see Question 5 years from now? 10 years from now?

Question:“MAN….ON A BEACH SOMEWHERE, WATCHIN MY KIDS PLAY…..MAKING POWER MOVES ON THE CELLPHONE SITTING IN MY BEACH CHAIR…(LOL). I WANNA BE IN A SITUATION, WHERE YOUR MONEY IS MAKING MONEY FOR YOU……AND IN FIVE, TEN YEARS I WANNA BE REMEBERED AS A GOOD DUDE WHO TRIED REALLY HARD TO MAKE GOOD MUSIC THAT PEOPLE STILL ENJOY…”

TM: When Can We Expect Another Question Cd To Drop? Anymore Mixtapes Or Singles Coming Soon?
