Interview: Miss Special x BJ The Chicago Kid x Liza Garza

I chop it up a lot with Miss Special behind the scenes. She's a talented woman with a lot of passion for music. I dig what she does and support as much as I can. A few weeks back she hit SXSW with the rest of the music world and snagged up a couple of interviews with some dope folks. As she uploads them, we'll be posting them. Enjoy.

I was finally able to interview BJ The Chicago Kid before his performance at The Vibe House during SXSW. We spoke about working with Thurz, Pac Div, Fly.Union, a bunch of unreleased tracks with Fly.Union, possibly doing a duet with Kay Cola and his upcoming duets with Joi Starr, Lola, Treasure Davis, etc. We also spoke about the story behind the title "Pineapple Now-Laters", including the J. Dilla influence, bringing soulful r&b back, the next video from the album from Paris and when to expect it. In addition we spoke about the success of the album, the loss of his friend, the creative process when working with Kendrick Lamar and what's next for him. 

While at SXSW, I was introduced to the lovely Liza Garza at the WhutUpDoe “Set It Off” showcase. After the showcase, I had the pleasure of interviewing her. We spoke about her appearance on Def Poetry Jam, her favorite hip-hop artists and her first album “BloomfulBeautiful”. We also spoke about her next album, the story behind her latest song “Gather Round”, writing poems versus writing songs, her jewelry line and more.
