Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do.

Hello class, LOL, I’m Bill $aber, your neighborhood chaos curator. And I, curate chaos =]

When did you get started? And how did the name come together?

I put a video up, OG ass video lmao, I was freestyling to Childish Gambino Freaks and Geeks, and a lot of feedback was positive. The name comes from my Hometown Professional Football Team and our Professional Hockey teams, IDK I just wanted to represent the hometown and I thought it was cleverly legendary.

Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap?

I did not, only rap 24/7?

Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now?

Mama $aber, she the reason I can sniff bullshit out and you’ll go really far in life if you can sniff bull shit out. You just won’t let anyone tell you anything. And God. for creating me and being there when no one else was.

If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour?

My Dream Tour? I don’t know what that is, but a tour will happen in the future with my Ye, Travis, and Jefferey.

Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up?

Overcoming being homeless with my whole family was so hard, lmao. I truly look back at all the times I wanted to quit. The darkest moment was working non-stop searching for the results you know are coming in the future. It’s only dark because, in those stages, no one is checking on you, you feel so alone. Yeah.

Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about?

Yes, Videos for most of my SoundCloud, meaning Creepin and Lurkin, and I bought some beats from Ronnyj and that should be an Ep that takes us to Year Of The Ram which should be dropping early fall.

Any upcoming shows you want to plug?

Yeah, Come see me and Lil Tracy live in Rochester, Ny. Tracy go dumb, I go dumb, you can’t lose. Ay. No humans, only animals.

Where can my readers stream your music and what site is best if they want to follow you? Where are you most active?

Music will be in all the digital stores asap, I literally just sent it off to be reviewed, until then Soundcloud, youtube. I’m active on everything, I’m not super poppin so ill catch a dm, mention, email every day. just might be delayed cause the traffic is raising.

As we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to include for our readers. Anything important I missed?

Only animals come to the $aber $how.

An Interview With Yung Flex

Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do.

My name is Yung Flex, I’m a 17-year-old rapper from Newport News, VA and I’ve been making music for about 4 years now. I also make cover art for myself and other artists and produce beats.

When did you get started? And how did the name come together?

Originally, I started making music as a joke. “Yung Flex” was a joke alias and everything. I would record songs with my headphone mic over random free beats and upload them to SoundCloud and share it with my friends. They all thought I was really good at rapping whether it was serious or not. I had been wanting to get into making music for years anyways, so I decided to keep it going.

Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap?

I never made any music before rapping, but I’ve always been into metal very heavily. I’ve always wanted to be in a band but I feel hip-hop is what I’m best at. I try and mix hip-hop and metal/rock in my music because of that reason. I’ve always been a huge fan of wrestling, and hearing metal constantly from watching WWE and stuff got me into it at a young age.

Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now?

My homies False Prpht & Poozy; my brothers Sowhatimdead, Bxxzy P, DJ Cumstain, & Lil Secret in the group I’m in (DeathCamp); Ghoulavelii/Big Bitter who produced my entire 10-34 EP which includes my most popular song; my brother BruhManeGod who produced my second most popular song (and my favorite); and my boy Andrew from Lost Appeal. All 10 of them gave me a huge push and helped a lot in their own ways. Love those guys.

If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour?

Of course my DeathCamp brothers I mentioned earlier, and my biggest influences Lil B & Black Kray. I’d also love to hit a tour with Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, Korn, or Limp Bizkit. They’re all my favorite bands.

Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up?

There’s always been hard times, and still are. Plenty of times where I feel like I’m not getting anywhere and I wanna quit. The darkest time would probably have to be 2016. That entire year I was just going through a lot of stuff in life, I was super depressed, but I always kept pushing my music no matter what. I’m glad I did too.

Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about?

I have a mixtape coming very very soon called “Pitmode”. I think it’s my greatest piece of work yet, and embodies my entire sound into one tape.

Any upcoming shows you want to plug? Nothing coming up as of right now, but I’m always doing shows up in Richmond, VA. I’ll post about it on my instagram (@yung.flex.la.flare) or my twitter (@yungflex666).

Where can my readers stream your music and what site is best if they want to follow you? Where are you most active?

SoundCloud.com/yungflexlaflare is where all my music is. And definitely my twitter and instagram that I plugged earlier. And add me on Facebook too (Yung Flex).

As we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to include for our readers. Anything important i missed?

VA is coming up in the music scene very very soon. Be on the lookout, we have a lot of fire here.


An Interview with Mikey$ix

Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do.

My name is Mikey Robles, I’m a rapper from Wenatchee Washington and I go by Mikey$ix.

When did you get started? And how did the name come together?

I’ve been rapping/making music since i was in 8th grade but started releasing my rap music around December 2016 when i did a feature with another rap group named “Gloom Cult”. I chose the name “Mikey$ix” because of my personal experiences with depression and anxiety. i had a lot of really messed up things happen to me in the past dealing with my issues, i struggled every day trying to find happiness and trying to learn how to manage my anxiety. for me i can remember it taking up to 6 years to really get in control of a lot of my mental issues but i want those 6 years to represent what it created in me.

Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap?

Before rap I was listening to heavy metal bands like Whitechapel, Thy Art Is Murder, The Faceless and many more. i was in a post-hardcore band back in highschool where i played guitar.

Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now?

Well, to start off I’m going to say my homies who rap in my town that have a group called Low Class Collective. i saw how they were doing their thing, recording their music and making the beats, it inspired me to actually put my music out there. also my homies in Gloom Cult “Lil Witch King and Slim Pariah” lil witch showed me the music he was making and also helping me with getting better with my production. they inspired me to work on my flow and work hard on with my music.

If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour?

Probably XXXTentacion, Bones, Pouya and Night Lovell. haha i’d have to really think about it because i have a lot of artists id like to tour with including metal bands just to switch it up a bit.

Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up?

Pretty much just dealing with my depression and anxiety mostly. probably the hardest thing was having to deal with the separation of my parents. i’ve been doing a lot to help my mom because my dad fucked us over completely. he cheated, lied and it came very close to violence if i didnt step in. so taking care of my mom, dealing with all the hate i have towards my dad. i found that through music i can really separate myself from everything and get lost. it felt so good writing raps and being able to express myself this way, i wanna keep on doing it because it makes me truly happy and i want my music to really reach out to people and let them know that they really arent alone dealing with these issues whatever it may be.

Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about?

I have a track coming out soon that I will be shooting a video for and I just signed up with Wavy666 so I will be releasing music with them as well

Any upcoming shows you want to plug?

I got a show this Friday the 28th in Wenatchee Washington at the community center with a few local rappers https://www.facebook.com/events/1784830548500412/

An Interview With Scott Rozell of Blackhouse Records

Before we have you read this introductory interview I would just like to personally say thank you to Scott for taking me seriously and giving me my first Record Deal. If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t even be running this webzine. I’d still be struggling and cold somewhere with no direction in life. But instead, I’m chasing my dreams with confidence. – Brett Deadly

Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do.

My name is Scott Rozell and I am the owner at Blackhouse. I also play drums in the band Scatterbox and the band Moral Crux. I also do some session drumming for various hiphop and metal projects.

When did you get started? And how did the name come together?

I used to put out a black and white punk rock zine back in high school called Stress Factor. I used to interview over email and phone all these bands that I would see in issues of MaximumRockNRoll, Flipside and so on. I traded zines with other people for their zines, records, tapes, whatever. Met a lot of people along the way. Decided to start a small record label after I graduated high school while I was in college. Around the same time, I was asked to join Moral Crux and started touring, which helped in an even bigger way in regards to networking, etc.

Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap?

Oh yeah, still do! Was very magnetized to punk and hiphop my entire life, along with industrial music….KMFDM, Godflesh, Revolting Cocks, Future Sound of London, etc…haha. When it came to hiphop, I lived on a healthy diet of Wu-Tang, Ras Kass, Too Short, Public Enemy, King Tee, tons of shit. The list could go for miles. At the same time, I was pretty immersed in the punk rock world, and it was crazy to join a band that I not only grew up on (Moral Crux), but was on Lookout! Records before I was even 20 years old. Never imagined that ever happening, but here we are, Lookout! Is now a piece of legendary punk rock history, and here we are.

Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now?

Oh man, everyone I interact with is literally an influence in my life in some way, shape or form. That’s a hard question, but if we are talking the first person EVER to get me set on the path I am on today, it’d be my cousin Chris. He made me my very first mixtape when I was like 7 years old. The first song on it was “Pay to Cum” by Bad Brains, and every song was just ground-breaking for me. I remember everything on that tape to this day, and it was my first ever exposure to punk rock and the DIY ethos. Ministry, Butthole Surfers, Velvet Underground, Minutemen, DRI, Suicidal Tendencies….I was hooked.

If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour?

If we were talking one tour package? I’d have to sayyyyyyyy….probably Too Short, Suicidal Tendencies (87’ Lineup), Tyler, The Creator, Trash Talk, and probably Gregor Samsa.

Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up?

There were quite a few, but I can say there’s nothing quite like giving up eating for a week just to afford to run flyers for a show or some other project I insisted on doing. It was a sacrifice I made many a time, simply because I was stubborn and more motivated by starting a label and maintaining a career in music of some sort than anything else. It was weird because it felt like (the label) was something I HAD to do. Like my brain wouldn’t let me not do it. It’s like a habit/hobby that I can’t put down because the solace and gratification is through the end result. Even if an album we release flops, I am still proud of it and the work that was put into it. In the end, I don’t care if anyone doesn’t like what we are putting out. WE LIKE what we are putting out.

Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about?

We are neck deep in a double LP preorder from Father, as we are now handling the physical manufacturing and distribution arm of Awful Records, so that’s got us busy. From there, we have releases coming up in the works right now from Prison Religion, Cold Blooded, ZAN, a split with The Drip (Relapse Records) and Absurdist from Texas, Abra, Slug Christ, and a couple other surprises that we haven’t announced yet (but will soon).

Any upcoming shows you want to plug? Blackhouse Records will have a 15 artist showcase at the Inlander Magazine’s Volume Festival in Spokane, WA on June 2

Blackhouse Records will have a 15 artist showcase at the Inlander Magazine’s Volume Festival in Spokane, WA on June 2 nd. Brett Deadly will be there, along with Ras Kass, Slug Christ, Nacho Picasso, Nobodies, Rot Monger, Crimewave, Scatterbox, Infrablaster, and damn near the rest of the entire Blackhouse roster. It’s going to be insane.

Where can my readers stream your music and what site is best if they want to follow you? Where are you most active?

If you go to www.blackhouserecordsinc.com, you will find everything you need….links at the top to all the social pages as well as youtube and Soundcloud links within. We are definitely most active on Facebook and Twitter:

https://www.facebook.com/blackhouserecordsinc/

https://twitter.com/Blackhouse_Recs

As we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to include for our readers. Anything important I missed?

Yeah. Don’t give up on what you love doing. If it truly feels like it was what you were put on this Earth to do, then by all means, do that shit. You only get one run at this whole life deal, so surround yourself with supportive people, go with your instinct, and leave an uncompromising body of work and legacy to share with the world. After all, it’s probably what you were put here for.


 

An Interview With YUNG DMIZE

1. Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do. I’m YUNG DMIZE, I’m a hip hop artist currently in Oxnard California, originally from the High Desert.

2. When did you get started? And how did the name come together? I grew up heavily influenced by East Coast hip hop as well as hardcore/punk, one of my favorite bands being DMIZE from NY which definitely sparked the idea for my current name. I have been rapping since I was in middle school and started shittily recording myself on GarageBand using iPod headphones as a mic but was too self-conscious to actually put it out. I’ve only just started putting my music out since the beginning of 2017.

3. Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap? I grew up playing drums in different hardcore/punk bands and I currently do vocals for a band called Morbid Visions. I’ve always felt the two styles and cultures go hand in hand.

4. Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now? I would have to give the biggest shout-outs to Steady Burnt gang and the dude DVRX. My homie Whobangin’ is one of my biggest motivators constantly pushing me to make songs out of my comfort zone and always the first person I send tracks to for honest feedback. DVRX has produced almost all of my music to date and is still producing amazing beats for a plethora of different artists. Last but not least I have to shout out my girl for giving me nothing but support and sometimes even forcing my lazy ass to record when I don’t feel like it.

5. If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour? Whobangin’, BeeaReaYeDee, Big L and Madball 

6. Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up? My whole life I grew up being told I wasn’t shit and have always been self-conscious of almost everything I do publicly. I came up in a broken home and lived on my own from about 14 on, so all of that fuels me musically, lyrically and pushes me to have impeccable work ethic.

7. Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about? I just dropped a tape called DEATH//OPTIONZ and am working on some more material with the homie DVRX and I’m also starting work on an EP being produced by Whobangin’. I have a few music videos up on YouTube and more to come in the near future.

8. Any upcoming shows you want to plug? I have no plans to play any shows currently while I try and get these next few releases done but I need to play a first show eventually, so book me!

9. Where can my readers stream your music and what site is best if they want to follow you? Where are you most active? SoundCloud is the most active site but I also have music posted up on Bandcamp for free download. Follow me on Insta as well for updates as they come. https://soundcloud.com/yungdmize, https://yungdmize.bandcamp.com, and yungdmize on Insta.

10.  As we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to include for our readers. Anything important I missed? Nah, just a shoutout to Brett Deadly for giving me the opportunity!

An Interview with Yung DB

1. Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do.

WASSUH IT’S ME YUNG DB, YUNG DONUTBITCH AND IMA DANCER/RAPPER/PRODUCER/TWERKER/COMEDIAN. I DO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING, I’M DEFINITELY THE MOST VERSATILE PERSON I KNOW. BUT FOR THE MOST PART PEOPLE KNOW ME FOR MY BEATS, RIDICULOUS MUSIC VIDEOS, AND ONLINE CONTENT.

2. When did you get started? And how did the name come together?

MY INTEREST IN MAKING MUSIC STARTED WHEN I WAS 10 AND I STARTED DANCING ALL TYPES OF STYLES. AT THE TIME, I WAS TAKING CLASS ALMOST EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK AND TAUGHT MYSELF HOW TO FREESTYLE AND BREAKDANCE. DANCE INSPIRES ME MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE AND IT HELPED ME DISCOVER MY PASSION FOR MUSIC. I STARTED MESSING AROUND ON FL STUDIO AS A YOUNG TEEN BUT STARTED MAKING BEATS AND RELEASING THEM FOR REAL 2 YEARS AGO. I STARTED RAPPING SOON AFTER. I MADE THE NAME “YUNG DB” ABOUT A YEAR BEFORE I STARTED PRODUCING, BUT THE STORY OF HOW I GOT MY NAME “YUNG DONUTBITCH” IS NOT EXCITING AT ALL, I JUST WOKE UP ONE DAY AND TEXTED MY FRIEND “FROM NOW ON CALL ME YUNG DONUTBITCH” AND IT STUCK. WHO KNEW 3 YEARS LATER THAT WOULD BE WHAT EVERYONE KNOWS ME AS. ALL MY CLOSEST FRIENDS CALL ME “DB”, “YUNG DB”, “DONUT” OR SOME VARIATION.

3. Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap?

HELL YEA AND STILL TO THIS DAY I WOULD SAY I MESS WITH OTHER GENRES BEFORE HIP HOP AND RAP. HOUSE MUSIC WILL ALWAYS BE MY FIRST LOVE. LISTENING TO HOUSE MUSIC IS WHAT INITIALLY MADE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH MUSIC AND DISCOVER MY DESIRE TO PRODUCE. THAT’S WHERE I’M ROOTED, I’M JUST A RAVE CLUB GIRL AT HEART. I’M ALSO INTO TAHITIAN DRUM MUSIC, EVER SINCE I DANCED TAHITIAN WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. RHYTHM IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME AND MY EAR HAS BEEN CONDITIONED TO HEAR DIFFERENCES IN TEMPO WHICH IS WHY I CANNOT STAND MOST OF THE RAPPERS THAT ARE OUT RIGHT NOW. IT’S NOTHING PERSONAL, BUT I JUST CAN’T SIT THERE AND LISTEN TO SOMEONE RAP OFF BEAT IT LITERALLY DRIVES ME CRAZY.

4. Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now?

BRAGGING RIGHTS BELONG TO ANY AND EVERYONE WHO SEES MY SHIT AND UNDERSTANDS WHAT THE FUCK I’M DOING. A LOT PEOPLE ARE SO QUICK TO HATE ON MY SHIT WHICH IS FLATTERING BECAUSE LIKE THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF YOUR DAY TO GIVE ME ATTENTION, BUT ALSO I DON’T THINK THESE PEOPLE REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M DOING AND THE MESSAGES I’M TRYING TO GET ACROSS. THE PEOPLE WHO HATE ON ME ARE USUALLY JUST MISERABLE, BORING, AND SERIOUS AND I TRULY FEEL BAD FOR THEM. SO ANYONE WHO’S BEEN FOLLOWING ME AND FUCKS WITH MY SHIT DESERVES FULL BRAGGING RIGHTS. I LOVE YALL. SPECIAL SHOUTOUT DEE;DIGGS, HAROCAZ, GREG, AND ALL OF RARE SQUAD BOSTON FOR HOLDING IT DOWN ALSO TDUBZ, FLUX REAL, AND ALL THE SLUTMONEY HOES. THEY’RE ALL MY BEST FRIENDS AND NUMBER 1 FANS. ALWAYS THERE TO SUPPORT ME AND MY ART AS WELL AS TO REMIND ME TO STOP TAKING THIS SHIT SO SERIOUS.

5. If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour?

IF I COULD GO ON TOUR WITH ANYBODY IT WOULD BE MY BFF HAROCAZ. THATS MY NUMBER 1 BITCH RIGHT THERE. WE’VE DONE SHOWS TOGETHER IN BOSTON AND WE’RE TRYING TO GO TO SLUT ISLAND THIS SUMMER IN CANADA, MAYBE SOMETHING IN NYC, BUT FOR REAL A HAROCAZ X YUNG DB TOUR WOULD BE LIT. IT’S BEEN MY DREAM TO GO ON TOUR FOR A WHILE NOW SO I’M REALLY TRYING TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR, AFTER I GRADUATE AND SHIT.

6. Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up?

I LEARNED PRETTY FAST HOW TO DEAL WITH ALL THE INTERNET BULLSHIT AND PEOPLE BEING ASSHOLES: YOU DON’T DEAL WITH IT, YOU LET PEOPLE RUN THEY’RE MOUTH UNTIL THEY RUN OUT OF ENERGY.  IT’S PRETTY SIMPLE.  THAT’S PROBABLY THE MOST PROMINENT ISSUE I’VE HAD TO DEAL WITH.  ANOTHER MORE SIGNIFICANT OBSTACLE I’VE FACED IS HAVING TO EXPLAIN TO MY PARENTS WHAT THIS MUSIC/INTERNET/TWERK SHIT IS ALL ABOUT.  I DON’T THINK ANY PARENT WANTS TO SEE THEIR BABY GIRL PORTRAYED AS SEXY OR PROMISCUOUS, ESPECIALLY ONLINE, AND MY POSTS ARE OFTEN LEWD.  IT TOOK A LOT OF IN DEPTH, THEORETICAL CONVERSATION FOR THEM TO FULLY COME AROUND AND ACCEPT THAT I AM CREATING AN IMAGE FOR MYSELF AND TRUST THAT I AM BEING SAFE AND SMART WITH EVERY DECISION I MAKE.  I MEAN, MY PARENT’S ARE STILL BLOCKED FROM MY ONLINE CONTENT, BUT WHEN I’M HOME I EXPLAIN THAT I PERFORM AT SHOWS AND MAKE MUSIC VIDEOS AND WEIRD MUSIC AND THEY ARE NOW PRETTY ACCEPTING.  I THINK IT COMFORTS THEM TO KNOW THAT I’M NOT PURSUING MUSIC AS A FULL-TIME, CAREER, RATHER ITS A CREATIVE, EXPLORATORY ENDEAVOR.

7. Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about?

NEWEST IN THE WORKS IS THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “POWERBALL”, A TRACK I PRODUCED USING VOCALS FROM HAROCAZ. WE FILMED IT LAST MONTH WHILE I WAS VISITING BOSTON AND IT’S CURRENTLY BEING EDITED, RELEASE DATE UNKNOWN. I HAVE A FEW RANDOM ASS TRACKS IN THE WORKS BUT I DON’T PRESSURE MYSELF WITH DEADLINES OR ANYTHING. NO BIG RELEASES BUT I WANT TO EVENTUALLY START WORKING ON A MIXTAPE OR SOMETHING. WE WILL SEE.

8. Any upcoming shows you want to plug? (Don’t forget your city and state and possible links)

NO UPCOMING SHOWS CURRENTLY, BUT I’M TRYING TO PLAN AT LEAST ONE IN NYC THIS SUMMER. MAYBE ONE IN BOSTON WHEN I GO TO VISIT IN AUGUST. KEEP AN EYE OUT.

9. Where can my readers stream your music and what site is best if they want to follow you? Where are you most active?

STREAM ALL OF MY MUSIC FOR FREE ON SOUNDCLOUD. I AM PRETTY ACTIVE ON ALL OF MY SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS, FIND ME ON FACEBOOK (“YUNG DB”), TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM (@YUNGDONUTBITCH), YOUTUBE (SLUTMONEY COLLECTIVE), AND GO PEEP MY NEW WEBSITE YUNGDB.COM!!!

10. As we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to include for our readers. Anything important i missed?

KEEP DOING YOU, FUCK ANYONE WHO TRIES TO GET IN THE WAY, FUCK NEGATIVITY, AND FUCK ANYONE ELSE’S OPINIONS. THIS SHIT SHOULD BE FUN, PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT MUSIC IS SUPPOSE TO UPLIFT. FUCKING DANCE THE NEXT TIME YOU GO TO A SHOW. I’M TIRED TO SEEING PEOPLE STAND AROUND ACTING ALL APATHETIC. LEAVE THAT SHIT AT HOME. ENJOY YOURSELF AND JUST HAVE FUN WITH IT.

STAY GRACED

An Interview with GOLDEN

1. Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do. My name is Ryan, but you can all call me GOLDEN. I am a hip hop artist from Phoenix, AZ. I rap and dabble in producing.

2. When did you get started? And how did the name come together? Well I wrote my first raps as a kid and always wrote poetry. I was in metal bands as my first part of this music journey and I was just too shy to show people my stuff, I freestyled a lot around my close friends and they liked it, entually I would get drunk at a few parties and freestyle and a lot of people seemed to fuck with it so I just said fuck it. I started seriously perusing it in like 2015 I think. As for my artist name my real actual name is Ryan Golden Weber. I was named after my great grandfather and his name was Golden. When it came time to think of a name I thought it was just simple and pretty cool. Plus my grandfather was a dope ass dude.

3. Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap? Yes my first instrument was the guitar and I shredded since I was a kid and played in a bunch of metal bands until I was like 22. I can play drums (not like crazy good or anything) as well and also am getting decent at producing my own beats.

4. Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now? Dude I could write book worth of thank you’s to peeps who have helped me, seriously. My family and friends are great and even down to the randoms who have shown me kindness. Shit so many people man, but there are 2 of them that really stick out. (1)Shout out to my mom Stephanie who is the the definition of a ride or die friend and has had my back ALWAYS even when I was throwing my life away. (2) Would have to be my best friend Jacob Miles SHOUT OUT TO YOU MAN! This dude has been my friend for like going on 6 years and we have done most of our major music together in life. He’s not the hugest fan of rap (or at least the style of rap I do) but when I stopped doing metal he had been picking up how to use Ableton and produce and actually helped me with some of my first vocal recordings, taught me how to use ableton so I could produce, and to this day produces a lot of beats for me, he is like the brains of mixing and mastering and I just give all my ideas help write melodies and direct him into molding what I want in the beat. And that mother fucker, also like my mom has never walked out on me. A geniuine true ass homie. Hahaha not trying to make this too long but also shout out to KIMBERLY LAROWE a promoter and awesome businesswoman from 13th floor entertainment that to this day still coaches me in the music industry and has taught me a shit ton.

5. If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour? Man that’s hard dude. My taste for artists change a lot. Um I always thought my dream tour would be me headlining playing to thousands of people every state on tour with some dope ass artists having fun. I just want my “Iron Maiden Crowd” dude, To name a few bands, Probably Like Bones, xxxtentacion with ski mask, maybe suicide boys, and it wouldnt be a party without pouya and fat nick.

6. Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up? Fuck man, I’ve definitely had a crazy life and I could write you a lot of books on that one. But hands down I would have to say my heroin addiction. I was basically tricked into doing it at a very young age and kept struggling off and on with it. It got in the way of my music big time, in like 2014 I ended up leaving Arizona and going to Aberdeen, Washington to get sober and stay with a friend, eventually got kicked out was sleeping outside (HOWBOWDAH) haha I actually slept underneath Kurt Cobain bridge which was kinda cool. Luckily I made friends with locals and found places to sleep while I worked. I was still fucking with opiates in pill form and ended up going to Los Angeles and had a 6 month sobriety run before moving back to AZ. Then I got the worst I’ve gotten on heroin but I was actually working really hard on my hip hop music at this point. Long story short I overdosed and didnt tell anyone about it got out the hospital and got back to it again, became homeless again right after christmas, It sucked and the music was gone. I ended up getting arrested for some warrants and went to jail for like 3 months. That right there is what saved my life. I went to Dallas Texas after that and saved enough money to build a computer and get my own lil shitty studio setup and its just been all growth from there. Im pretty happy I came out of it, this whole hip hop thing saved my life and I am still sober to this day. I still party tho, just not with the tar.

7. Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about? So I was recently in this group called KVLT and I actually quit for reasons I don’t wish to disclose. But I have a FUCK TON of material ready to be released I just want to do it right. I actually am in the process of getting a few tracks finalized and will release my solo shit it the next 2 weeks. For now you can check out this Jcole Remix that I destroyed, Its the beat from the song “Fire Squad” Also below that I will give Links to my social media and you should stay tuned for this music im about to brainwash you with!!

An Interview with HXRMAN

1. Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do.

I’m hxrman and I make hits 

2. When did you get started? And how did the name come together?

I spent about 2 years putting music put under the name “oosh nugs” got about 12 mixtapes out before I decided to start taking shit seriously.

I gotta New birth certificate in the mail last year and found out my last name is Herman, smacked an x in there for search optimization and became hxrman. 

Thought I might as well keep it real lmao.

3. Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap?

Yuh, spent most my life in or recording hardcore bands, that’s how I got my foundation for computer recording/producing. I’d just record everything myself and program drums then give my band sheet music to learn hahaha 

4. Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now?

My main boy Doni Moines from 9th life, they had my back since the first OOSH NUGS tape and keep clothes on my back. My dude Taskone, he’s shot and directed every music video apart from the sucker video. Swag Toof for always showing love, Trillphonk and Hauntxr for the mad support, and the homie iceberg black for being the goat.

5. If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour?

Fuck that’s a hard one. I reckon a tour with buffet boys would be fun as Fuck. Especially if I got to fight people on stage.

I’d love to see lil yachty live, a tour with him and famous Dex and some of the QC artists would be a dream come true.

6. Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up?

Just battling the small minded shit haha. When I first started putting out a lot of content, my main haters were this right wing hate group from my hometown, so that was kind of cool. Neo nazi douchebags. I’m Jewish as Fuck, and pretty outward about it, and they also really didn’t like the fact I was in an interracial relationship at the time. For some reason, this had something to do with my music lol.

7. Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about?

I got a brand new EP called YOUSTUPIDCUNT that should be out in the next month. I produced the whole thing myself, but I’m at the point now where I’m ready to scrap it so I’m handing it over to my homie hollow to bless it with new beats and make me happy with it

8. Any upcoming shows you want to plug? (Don’t forget your city and state and possible links)

Me and 9th life just in the process of booking a new Zealand tour at the moment so stay tuned on that!

9. Where can my readers stream your music and what site is best if they want to follow you? Where are you most active?

I’m most active on Soundcloud but I’m also most up to date on sc, meaning nothing’s permanent and I delete shit all the time, for more permanence, hit up spotify

www.Soundcloud.com/hxrman

https://open.spotify.com/artist/0p4vsp6ydwZnVex9UerbRR

Or search hxrman on youtube!

10.  As we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to include for our readers. Anything important i missed

I just fucked your sister 

 

An Interview with Past/Reaper Mane of Wavy666

1. Thank you for taking some time to be interviewed for the Super Happy Death Cult webzine. Can you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us a little bit about what you do.

Thanks for the opportunity! I’m Past/Reaper Mane, one third of the Colorado rap collective WAVY666. I produce, network, design the graphics and make music for the collective. Pretty much anything you see, in regards to our shit, is done by myself.

2. When did you get started? And how did the name come together?

Funny story, Wavy came to be in 2012 back when PM (Co-founder) and I were freshman in high school. Back then we were putting out some pretty trash, hyphy style tracks. We did that shit for like a year and it was going nowhere so the project was put aside, and I went on to other musical stuff. It wasn’t until about eight months ago we re-branded, and started putting out what you’re hearing today. As far as the name, the name came to be long before a lot of these SoundCloud cats started putting “wavy” on everything. I’m pretty sure we just thought the shit sounded cool and went with it. It’s just kinda stuck to us now so we’re running with it.

3. Did you mess with any other genres or forms of music before getting into hip-hop and rap?

Bro, since day one music has been my thing. I was never good at physical art, sports, or any shit like that, I was always drawn to music. I’m really into metal, like most of these dudes are these days. Haha. This whole rappers being into metal is somewhat of a new concept to me. I thought I was the only one, now there’s a whole gang of ’em out here. I’m actually currently in a metal band I started called FUBAR. We’re working on our third album. As far as metal goes, I’m super into early 80’s thrash, death, and speed metal. Some of the new shit that’s out is pretty good too. Other influences come from punk, jazz, a lot of early 90’s rap, and I even bump classical from time to time. I’m super open about music. My Spotify song playlist is all kinds of fucked up, haha. I’ve always had a love for rap though. It just took me a while to delve deep into, somewhat of a nerd stage to find out what I was really into.

4. Who gets bragging rights for helping you get to where you are now?

As far as I’m concerned, we still aren’t shit. Recently, however, our numbers (SC stats) have nearly doubled. I attribute that heavily to two things. Larger artists, and other cats reposting our shit on their own volition, and these kids that bump our shit all day, every day. We have SoundCloud Pro now, and it’s crazy to see that certain people are bumping our songs like 50-200 times a day. That shit’s insane to me. We appreciate the love though, just didn’t expect it to come so quick, or at least I didn’t.

5. If you could go on tour with anybody, who would the roster consist of? What would be your dream tour?

Dude, I’d probably set up some fucked up, mixed genre tour, with hardcore and metal bands. I think that’d be dope. But, if we’re talking about rappers, I’d like to set up an underground tour with some of these internet homies I have, anchored by a larger act. I really fuck with Boosie, Flatbush Zombies, and Earl Sweatshirt right now. It’s way too hard for me to give you one artist I’d want us to tour with. I’m into way too much shit, haha.

6. Where there any significant obstacles or hard times that you had to overcome to get here today? What was the darkest moment in your personal come up?

I think we’re still in those hard times, dude. I just moved out of my parent’s house, working 45-55 hour work weeks, only to barely scrape by, All whilst trying to put this music out, and chase a dream I’ve had since I was young. As an artist, you face dark times every day, especially when you’re stuck where I’m at. I am way too critical with myself when it comes to my art, and what I put out. I think that’s the biggest struggle for me, this lingering self-doubt.

7. Are there any important video or music releases you have coming out soon that we should know about?

Yeah! Once we get time to shoot them, that is. Our schedules constantly conflict each others. We have one coming out for “Maniacal” which is our biggest track without a feature. We’re also contemplating putting one out for “Gotta Get Away (Pt. 1&2)”. We have big plans, just need time to make them come to fruition.

8. Any upcoming shows you want to plug? (Don’t forget your city and state and possible links)

Dude, we have absolutely ZERO connections in our home city. So, shows for us are few and far between. We stay more so focused on putting out good content consistently. The shows will come later on, when there’s a larger demand for them to happen.

9. Where can my readers stream your music and what site is best if they want to follow you? Where are you most active?

The place to find our music is SoundCloud (https://soundcloud.com/wavycrew666). We try to drop a track or two every week on there, so be sure to check us out. On the social media side of things, Facebook is where we are most active. We always reply to messages, features are free (if we fuck with you), we’re always down to chop it up with fans. Our facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/wavy666/

10. As we wrap this up, is there anything else you would like to include for our readers. Anything important i missed?

First off, I want to shout out Brett, and Super Happy Death Cult for y’alls continuous support. We have a lot of new projects in the works, in different styles of hip-hop. We are not a one-trick pony, and we are not like the rest of these cats. Soon enough everyone will see that. Stay tuned, and shout out to all the family and fans who support us. Y’all never go unnoticed.

An Interview With NEM of SCHEMAPOSSE

Thanks for taking some time to be interviewed for the SHDCVLT webzine. Can you please introduce your self to our readers and tell us who you are and what you do?

NEM: Hey, im NEM from SCHEMAPOSSE…I do it all, Produce, Rap, Direct and Edit videos, GFX design and im working on my first movie soon.

Gnarly man. You sound like a handy person to have around. When did you join Schemaposse and how did it go down?

NEM: I found out about JGrxxn when he dropped a diss song to SGP, I became a fan and added him on FB…I saw he performed at House of Blues, me being partnered with Lil Woofy Woof & Diggy 1-D whos heavily influenced by Snoop Dogg/Nate Dogg, I wanted to see how we could open up for the next show they had there and showed JGrxxn our music…He liked what he heard and when he started Schemaposse a few months later we contacted each other…I joined and brought in Woof and Diggy 1-D

When and how did you link up with Woof and Diggy? And what are the dynamics behind your affiliation with them? What is everybody bringing to the table?

NEM: I met Diggy about 4-5 years back, someone at my Job gave me his CD knowing Im a producer…I heard the CD and was blown away, it was like a mixture of Nate Dogg with rapping skills like Young Buck or ZRO…I met Woof about 3-4 years ago when I was scrolling down my newsfeed and it was SGP sharing his music Ironically…someone tagged him in the comments and I added him…One day he needed cover art so I volunteered and made his Dogg Food cover…he loved it and we became friends…at that point in time I was just starting to get good at West Coast beats so it was great timing, I sent him a few and we been partners ever since…as far as our Dynamic goes, Woof provides the West Coast flavor on the raps, Diggy provides the Nate Dogg vibe on the singing and southern vibes on the rapping, whether it be trill like 8ball & MJG or trippy like Outkast and Goodie Mob..hes great at producing too…..Im more like the Brains of the operation, I do more then Produce and Rap, I do the background stuff like putting the albums together and makin Hardcopies out of them, makin the website, skits and direction of the crew in general, even booking if you count our SXSW performance. When it comes to my music, Im influenced by all the legendary producers so I can make beats from all different coasts and mix them into one…as far as my rapping, im influenced by Mobb Deep, Method Man, Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs…i think I only sound good when I rap like Bone tho haha.

Ey i dig all your stuff and im a really tough critic. SXSW is a really big deal! Respect. When did you start making beats and doing graphic design and all that? You have a very distinct style.

NEM: Thank you man that means a lot…I started makin beats when I was around 17 and GFX since I was like 14-15…Im 25 now.

So i dont want to get too off topic but can you enlighten us a bit on Ghostemane leaving Schemaposse and the issues that have come up?

NEM: Well they filmed the NoJumper interview and had a few shows coming up…he left a couple days before the interview dropped with no explanation to the crew, with shows still lined up headlining next to JGrxxn…he wasn’t even supposed to be on this interview or at these shows, they were hand outs from JGrxxn…so he left and threw shots at us here an there on songs/shows, subliminally and direct…

Now if you want to know his reasoning, you’d’ have to ask him because he hasn’t said a word to us.

Ill see if i can get the interview so we can clear the air. So if you could book your dream tour, what artists would be included on the bill? In this scenario you could also bring some artists back from the dead.

NEM: It would probably be Wu-Tang, Nas, Biggie, Redman, Mobb Deep, Big Pun, Three 6 Mafia, Bone Thugs, Naughty By Nature, OGC, Spice 1, Kool G Rap, Gucci Mane, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Outkast, 8 Ball & MJG, Kingpin Skinny Pimp, AZ, Gangstarr, Group Home, Kid Cudi, Kanye West, and Schemaposse haha. 

Oh and you cant leave out Eminem, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, and Skeelo haha…thats a tour.

That fucking tour would tear a hole in the fabric of space bro! Haha. You got any important shows or milestones from Schemaposse you would like to take a moment to promote to us?

NEM: At the moment JGrxxn got his show at that halloween joint and i’m just prepping to go to Brazil for 3-6 months to do Surgery on my ears…i’m gonna announce a show out there in Brazil Im already getting hit up by a couple people…I should return around SXSW time for more performances there. Thats when I start shooting my first movie.

Thats exciting shit man. I hope everything goes well in Brazil. And i should be down there at SXSW as well. If you have some shows lined up ill come out. Thank you for your time this was a good introductory interview for the Webzine. We will check up on you again in the future. As we wrap this up is there anything else you would like our readers to know about?

NEM: No doubt man Ill see you there!…um sure I just made a website that has everything about me on it…www.DaOfficialNEM.com…so check me out and contact me if you want to work…have a great day.
